Who is EARS?

Education and Animal Rescue Society is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit Texas corporation whose mission is to educate the public about issues concerning animal behavior and proper care for pets including an emphasis on vaccinations, spay and neutering, and nutrition. Further, EARS is committed to finding homes for unwanted animals that would otherwise perish in shelters. EARS keeps all of its animals in homes with volunteer foster families where the animals are loved and treated like a part of the family until the right permanent home is found.

How do I adopt a friend?

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, then the first step is to please complete an Adoption Application and email it to us at or fax it to us at 214-447-9632. Since we are an all volunteer group, please be patient with us in responding to your inquiries. Thank you for your interest in our adoption program!

How do I meet an EARS animal?

We keep our animals in foster homes across the metroplex and do not have a shelter. You can meet one of our animals by appointment once your adoption application had been processed and initially approved (final approval occurs right before the adoption is complete). Also, EARS has Meet and Greet Days at various local venues in the Dallas area. Meet and Greet Days are an opportunity for you to meet some of our animals. Unfortunately, not all of our animals make it to every Meet and Greet Day so please contact us at to check if your four-legged friend of choice will be available to meet you. (We do not do any onsite adoptions.)


Our next Meet and Greet with our special pets will be October 11 from 9-1 at the Holiday Market at the Robson Ranch Club House located at 9400 Ed Robson Blvd., Denton, TX 76207. EARS is delighted to join the Robson Ranch Womens Club at their Annual Holiday Market! Get a jump start on your holiday shopping with 65+ vendors, selling pottery, jewelry, fashions, books, home decor, etc., plus plenty of food and fun! And while you are enjoying everything the Market has to offer, stop by and visit with EARS and our rescue dogs, you might just meet your new best friend!
