Underage Puppies and Kittens

The animals on this page are orphaned kittens and puppies as well as nursing mothers with newborns. Dallas Animal Services wants to get these fragile creatures out to foster homes ASAP. We have a kitten and puppy nursery that is open from spring to fall each year, but with approximately 1,300 babies coming in each kitten season, we need help!

The DAS Foster Team provides the supplies you need to care for your foster pets and once they are old enough and big enough to be fixed, they can be brought back to DAS for spay/neuter and adoption. Oh, and if you want to adopt one or more of your fosters, just let us know!
