Tater Tot came into the shelter a horrible matted mess. (Praise goes to the wonderful volunteer at the shelter that shaved him down for us.) All Tater wants is for someone to rub his belly and make up for the time lost when his hair was so nasty that probably no one touched him. He is such a cuddler! He would be perfectly content sitting next to you for hours getting his belly rub. Tater weighs about 15 pounds and is around 4 years old. He has HUGE brown eyes that make him look like a baby seal. He loves people and gets along with other small dogs, but he would also be fine as the only dog so he could get all the attention. Tater is such a people-dog that he would do best if he is not left alone all day.He would be perfect for someone who is home during the day and wants a sweet, lovable companion.His cutest trick is rubbing his back on the floor and making growling noises. He is a smart boy and will do just about anything for a treat or a belly rub. He also loves to go on walks. Does he sound like just the dog for you?

We are a RESCUE GROUP, not a shelter, and all of our animals are in foster homes. To start the adoption process, email us at requesting an application. Submitting an application does not commit you in any way, but helps us make the best match between people and our available dogs. All of the dogs in our program are inside dogs and are completely vetted including all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, free of internal parasites, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention before adoption. Our adoption process includes an application, check of vet records or personal references, interview, neutral site meet & greet with the dog and your family, and a home visit.

About Education & Animal Rescue Society (EARS)

About Our Rescue Group...

Education and Animal Rescue Society is an all volunteer, non-profit Texas corporation whose mission is to educate the public about issues concerning animal behavior and proper care for pets including an emphasis on vaccinations, spay and neutering, and nutrition. Further, EARS is committed to finding homes for unwanted animals that would otherwise perish in shelters. EARS keeps all of its animals in homes with volunteer foster families where the animals are loved and treated like a part of the family until the right permanent home is found.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter, as all of our rescue animals are living with foster families in private homes. You can meet one of our animals by appointment once your adoption application had been processed and initially approved (final approval occurs right before the adoption is complete). Also, EARS has Meet and Greet Days at various local venues in the Dallas area. We will post the dates and times of the Meet and Greet Days on this website. Meet and Greet Days are an opportunity for you to meet some of our animals. Unfortunately, not all of our animals make it to every Meet and Greet Day so please contact us at adoptions@earstexas.orgto check if your four-legged friend of choice will be available to meet you. (We do not do any onsite adoptions.)

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please email us at for an application and more information. Since we are an all volunteer group, please be patient with us in responding to your inquiries. Thank you for your interest in our adoption program!
