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.
Why we do it
12 million animals are euthanized each year in the United States.
That is 1 million a month
1,388 animals an hour
70,000 - The number of kittens and puppies born in the US each day.
10,000 - The number of people born in the US each day.
In 2004, the city of Dallas impounded 28,686 dogs and cats.
25,699 were killed by lethal injection.
Less than 2000 were adopted or re-claimed by owners.
200,000 - Estimated cats and dogs killed each year in animal shelters in Denton, Collin, Tarrant, and Dallas alone.

Otherwise, once we receive your application we can make arrangements for you to meet the animal. Usually, the foster parent will bring the animal to your home.
