But to keep pets and their people together, sometimes that means we need to bridge a gap through temporary foster placement. Temporary fosters provide pets with a safe haven within a loving foster home, while their owners take time to get the help they need — whether they’re escaping a domestic violence situation, entering treat ..read more

However, when placed with dedicated fosters, a dog’s chance of being adopted leaps to over 90%. Dallas has the largest shelter intake in the nation after New York and Los Angeles. Some estimate over 100,000 homeless dogs roam the region or cycle throu ..read more
