Calling All Dallas Animal Lovers!

Dallas citizens - Do you have 5 minutes to make a long-lasting impact on the lives of Dallas’ furry friends and our community?

Dallas Animal Services asked the City to fund a state-of-the-art animal shelter and adoption center through the 2024 Bond Program (Spanish version), and we need your help to make it a reality!


Here are a few ways a new shelter would help us accomplish our goals:

  1. Public Safety: The proposed new shelter aligns with our priority of ensuring public safety. By addressing our shelter’s current limitation and overcrowding, we reduce the health and safety risks for both animals and citizens. Adequate space and improved facilities support the well-being of animals and minimizes the potential for public health issues. And improved ventilation, sanitation, and isolation areas can help prevent the spread of diseases and create a healthier environment for both animals and staff.
  2. Animal Lifesaving: Our other priority of animal lifesaving is at the forefront of this proposal. A modernized shelter includes an adoption center where we can enhance the animals’ physical and mental health, leading to increased adoptions. This aligns with our dedication to saving lives and reducing euthanasia rates, ultimately creating a more humane and compassionate community.
  3. Community Benefits: A state-of-the-art animal shelter will attract more visitors, volunteers, and adopters, fostering a sense of community involvement and shared responsibility for animal welfare. There will be space for educational programs and community outreach activities in a new shelter including workshops, seminars, and events promoting responsible pet ownership and strengthening the bond between residents and their pets. A new shelter draws visitors, boosting local businesses around the facility and contributing to the overall economic vitality of the area.

The construction of this new shelter is not just an immediate fix, but a long-term investment in the city’s future. The facility will continue to serve the community and its animals for decades to come, reflecting the city’s commitment to compassion and progress.
