Humane Society of Dallas County Animal shelter in Dallas, TX

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, 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 is to promote adoption and provide a safe, healthy and compassionate environment for the dogs and cats of Dallas County for as long as needed.
