Meet Dallas Animal Advocates:
Support Your City Animal Shelter
Ever wonder what happens to all those stray dogs that are picked up by Dallas Animal Services? As the city’s animal shelter, DAS holds those dogs as long as possible to give the owners a chance to claim them. If they’re not claimed, they’re evaluated for adoption – as are pets that are surrendered by their owners, for whatever reason.
This month's Featured Pets:
Check out some great pets at Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center, 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30. Here are some of the dogs waiting for their forever homes. All of these great dogs have been at the shelter since the middle of December, and they really deserve a second chance. Given some love and some training, these dogs will make wonderful companions. The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and includes spay or neuter surgery, first shots, and health exam. Best deal in town! You can visit the adoption site here.

Dallas Animal Advocates is here to make the city animal shelter a more comfortable and comforting environment for every pet – no matter how long, or how short, its stay.
Dallas Animal Advocates, a non-profit, 501 c 3 organization, is the support group for Dallas Animal Services. We raise funds to supply Animal Services with items that the city can’t afford, but that are essential to providing quality care for the animals. For example, one of our most popular programs is our Creature Comforts holiday campaign. This annual fundraising drive allows us to buy bedding for every single animal in the shelter – including the frequently overlooked Lost & Found areas, where dogs and cats wait to be evaluated for adoption, or for their owners to claim them.
Because Dallas Animal Services is the city’s municipal “animal control” agency, some people don’t even realize that the shelter has an adoption program. Yet, conveniently located at I-30 and Westmoreland, there are hundreds of wonderful dogs and cats – just waiting for their second chances. At Dallas Animal Advocates, we work with the DAS staff to create adoption events and to spread the word so that more pets will find their forever homes.
Upcoming Events & Supporting Dallas Animal Advocates:
Every dollar raised by Dallas Animal Advocates goes to support the animals and staff at DAS. Our biggest fundraiser of the year is coming up in just a few months. Mark your calendars for Sunday evening, May 6, and join us at Sambuca Uptown in Dallas for the second annual Real Men Care. This event celebrates some special men in our community – superstars as well as everymen – who have made a difference for animals. We’re honored to partner with the Metroplex Animal Coalition in producing this truly unique event and sharing the proceeds.
Last year’s Real Men Care generated lots of buzz, and this year’s event will be even better. In addition to Sambuca’s great food and an awesome silent auction, it will have a race car theme that will rev the engines of any Real Man (or Real Woman). Tickets will go on sale in mid-March; information will be at http://www.metroplexanimalcoalition.org/RealMenCare.html.
