Our Process

We are continually working to grow our wide-ranging network of partners which includes dog and cat rescues, small animal and livestock sanctuaries, and wildlife rehabilitation centers. 



When you become an approved D90 Rescue Partner, you join a collaborative community focused on providing positive outcome opportunities for the pets of Dallas. You will have access to our exclusive Rescue Partner Facebook group, where we frequently post pets in need; receive our quarterly newsletter; collaborate with us during Rescue Partner meetings, and participate in other exclusive D90 Rescue Partner initiatives. 



We welcome 501(c)3 animal welfare organizations to apply to join our lifesaving efforts. Before you begin the process, we recommend you read through our D90 Rescue Handbook.



Our team supports our D90 Rescue Partners by providing animals with age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, and microchips before they are pulled at no financial expense to you.
