Paws In The City's Adoption Process

Requirements to Adopt a Dog in Foster Care: Before adopting, we require an approved pre-adoption application, an interview, a home check, a signed adoption contract and an adoption fee (dogs=$200 / puppies=$250 / cats=$125) to cover the animal’s health-related expenses and boarding while in our care. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, are current on shots, tested and de-wormed.

Go to our website for our pre-adoption application,www.pawsinthecity.org and click on Adopt a Dog or Adopt a Cat for the pre-adoption application (in PDF format). Please print and complete the application and then email or fax it to the following address:

972 421 1697 Or michael@pawsinthecity.org

Once we receive your pre-adoption application, we will contact you for a phone interview and continue the adoption process from there. Feel free to contact us by email if you would like more information on any animal.

About Paws In The City

Paws In The City® is committed to supporting the City of Dallas Animal Shelter by hosting off-site adoptions for the dogs and spay/neuter education and fundraising through specific outreach programs.

Paws In The City is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 organization committed to ending overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas dogs and cats . We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff.

Paws In The City is committed to the following goals:

 Rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the City of Dallas animal shelters by sponsoring off-site adoptions to find these abandoned animals terrific, loving homes…often many of these wonderful pets are days away from being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes... a tragedy we are determined to end;

 Providing a comforting and positive environment for adoptions;

 Providing medical care to neglected, abused, and injured animals through our outreach efforts;

 Educating the public on responsible pet ownership; and

 Supporting spay and neuter programs…the simple, common sense solution to ending the number of unwanted dogs and cats on our streets and in our city shelters.
