Darby's Pals Rescue began quite informally in 1994 in the SE Dallas area as simply a good-hearted gesture to take in a little Yorkie-Pomeranian mix dog who'd been terribly abused by both a groomer & an owner........the dog's name was Darby......and thus began this great adventure! Our blessed sanctuary is now home to about 40 dogs and 25 cats (including the ferals), and our no-kill policy is of utmost importance. As much as we wish to find loving & permanent homes for all our animal friends, we especially cherish the hearts & lives of our "kids" who have been challenged with issues of physical impairment, neglect, abuse, abandonment, and aging. Our ultimate goal is to provide the best care possible for every single "Darby's Pal"-- whether we end up matching it with that "perfect new family" or just need to keep it safe here.......we believe in doing whatever it takes to honor and cherish these precious lives of God's creatures.
We are incorporated with the state of TX and a 501c3 IRS-recognized charitable organization. Though we are indeed a non-profit entity, we still fund this organization largely out-of-pocket.......and humbly welcome any monetary donations offered- which of course, are tax-deductible.
Prior to adoption, all our "kids" are current on shots/ heartworm & flea preventative, have been spayed or neutered, and have been deemed healthy by our vet. Our feral program is designed to provide basic care and spays/ neuters for our rural community felines, while also trying to do our part locally to prevent animal over-population and spread of disease.
PRESENTLY WE ARE FULL-- AND SIMPLY HAVE NO MORE ROOM NOR FUNDING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE IN ANY ADDITIONAL ANIMALS AT THIS TIME.
Adopting a friend
For reasons of security & safety, we serve potential clients by appointment only. We are very selective in matching our animals with prospective families; therefore have a lengthy applicaton process intentionally designed for that purpose. An adoption donation of $150 per animal is appreciated, to off-set previous veterinary costs paid by Darby's Pals Rescue for getting the animal ready for adoption; we do, however, honor a refund policy- so that we know for sure that if things don't work out in the new home, the animal will be promptly returned to us safely. If seriously interested in one of our animals, please call to receive our application.
