My story

Evander is a long term resident!  He has been at the shelter for FOUR crazy years.   He is so loved by staff and volunteers that he now has his own guest cottage at the shelter.  It was built especially for him!

In 2017 he was found living on the rough streets of Dallas.  Since he is also missing one of his ears he earned the appropriate name of Evander.  Just like the boxer, he is big, strong, and energetic.  In a person, these traits are represented in many of our best and admired athletes.  For dogs, it can make them more difficult to place.  Our boy needs a person that is physically strong to walk him, and mentally strong to keep him focused, work with him, and train him. When playing, Evander can be a big goofball.  He loves to un-stuff toys, throw ropes around, and play in the kiddie pool during the summer.  If "E" knows you well, he is a very loving dog!  He will sit as close as possible to get full body scratches and rubs.  If he is unfamiliar with you, he is hesitant, cautious, and protective.  All in all, he is a great dog for the right person!  Nothing would make us happier than for Evander to have his own home. Please fill out an application for a Meet n Greet.  Multiple meetings will be required.  Be the hero that Evander needs!  Maybe you need him too!

The adopter for Evander should not have children or other pets in the home.  His home should be a quiet place where there are not a lot of people coming and going.  He is also not recommended for apartment life. However, he is recommended to be the most loyal companion a person could ask for!

Adoption includes spay/neuter, microchip, and shots.  All dogs are on heartworm preventative or treatment.

Adoption:  $100

Additional adoption info

Animals are available for adoption from the shelter, as well as off-site locations on weekends. We have a thorough application and reference check policy, and many knowledgeable volunteers who can help you find a pet that is best suited for your lifestyle.  Our Adoptable Cats      Our Adoptable Dogs Go to our website for more information on adoptions. ANIMAL SURRENDER POLICY Dog & Kitty City deals primarily with the homeless animals of Dallas and strives to be an integral part of a great city where all life is valued and cared for. If you have an animal who needs help, we accept them on a space available basis by appointment only. We must also require a surrender fee. If we are full at the shelter but we accept your animal into our foster program with you as the foster parent, we will support you in every way including paying for the costs of medical, food, and sterilization of the animal. We encourage you to attend our Adopt-A-Pets with the animals and post a picture and bio of the animal on our website.

More about this shelter

The Humane Society of Dallas County has been a rescue organization since its inception in 1975. In 1987, we established Dallas' first no-kill animal shelter, Dog & Kitty City. Our goal is to place healthy and rehabilitated animals into loving and responsible homes. We spay or neuter all our animals before adoptions, as this policy will help decrease animal over-population. We test all our cats for FeLV and FIV, and our dogs are treated for heartworms. Both are treated for parasites. All necessary vaccinations and medication are given as required. In addition to our adoption services, we also function partly as a sanctuary by taking in difficult to place animals, older animals, feral animals, and FIV and FeLV positive cats. Dog & Kitty City relies completely on donations from individuals and corporations. Please make a donation or help us in any of these ways. We are a non-profit 501.c3 organization, which means that all donations are tax deductible. Our service to the animals depends completely on the generosity of the community and our dedicated volunteers. We are able to help homeless animals only through the continued support from people like you. Our mission has always been to make life better for animals by:
  • Rescuing and ministering to the indigent animal population.
  • Providing shelter, love and medical care for all of our animals until they find a loving home.
  • Promoting responsible pet ownership.
  • Providing on-going adoption support services to ensure a lifetime commitment from pet owners.
  • Eliminating animal cruelty through education.
  • Helping to reduce animal over-population with low-cost spay/neuter referral programs.
  • Fostering a respect for all living creatures.
