SHORT TERM FOSTER OPPORTUNITY! Foster a medium or large adult dog from Dallas Animal Services and bring them back to be adopted after Black Friday.

Short term fosters help us SAVE LIVES! Fostering opens up kennel space for us to bring in more pets and helps us to learn more about the pet so that we can share with potential adopters how they act in a home. Bring your foster back after Black Friday when we typically see a spike in adoptions.

Learn more and become a foster today at www.dallasanimalservices.org.

We had some special visitors today! The TOYOTA TSSC (Toyota Production System Support Center, Inc) team was at DAS getting their first tour of our shelter.

This team will be helping us to find efficiencies in our processes so that we can save even more pet lives! Our first project with them is to learn how we can be more efficient with our field intake processes. (Our General Manager, Jordan Craig, is seen with a Toyota TSSC team member here in one of our field bays.)

We’re so excited to work with the Toyota TSSC in the next few months and we can’t thank them enough for coming out today. We’re looking forward to streamlining our operations to save even more lives!

#DASalumni Winston wants your opinion! Do you think it's too early to put up the holiday decor? He's already got his santa suit on but wants your vote! Post a "🎄" if you've already started decorating or a "🙅" if it's way too soon for holiday cheer in the comments below to vote.

Either way, give this boy a "❤️" for his cuteness!

Shane (#A1104557) knows all about the perks of foster life and wants to tell you about how awesome it is! Right now, DAS is in need of short term fosters for medium and large sized dogs like Shane. You can easily become a foster online at dallasanimalservices.org and we have opportunities available for as short as two weeks!

Fostering not only helps us open up kennel space to bring in more dogs, but it also teaches us a ton about the pet in foster that we can pass on to potential adopters. We've learned that Shane, for example, is all about his dog bed and enjoys nice long naps. You can adopt Shane at dallasanimalservices.org OR become a foster and help another dog just like him! #FosteringSavesLives #D90Foster

11/11/2020

One of our favorite Human Animal Support Services (HASS) elements is Lost and Found and DAS is always looking for new ways to help reunite pets to their people faster. Last fiscal year alone, DAS returned 6,500 pets to their owners. 🙀

Pets like Charolete (#A1109963) and her owner were reunited after she had been missing for several months... How you ask? Because Charolete was microchipped, DAS was able to scan her at intake and make contact with her owner who came to the shelter to reclaim her as soon as she could! Remember, pets are not only required to be microchipped in the City of Dallas but microchipping is also your best chance of being reunited with your pet if they ever get lost!

If your pet isn't microchipped yet, make sure to contact your veterinarian or our partners Spay Neuter Network to have them chipped! Learn more about lost pets at DAS at https://bit.ly/38TZ4Ww.

Hello, are you allowing anyone to do a quick visit with a dog they are interested in adopting? I call but 311 answers and they won’t transfer me to the shelter. I would like to ask more specific questions before adopting and they are very vague. Thank you.
