The Humane Society of Dallas County has been a rescue organization since its inception in 1975. In 1987, we established Dallas' first no-kill animal shelter, Dog & Kitty City.
Our goal is to place healthy and rehabilitated animals into loving and responsible homes. We spay or neuter all our animals before adoptions, as this policy will help decrease animal over-population. We test all our cats for FeLV and FIV, and our dogs are treated for heartworms. Both are treated for parasites. All necessary vaccinations and medication are given as required.
In addition to our adoption services, we also function partly as a sanctuary by taking in difficult to place animals, older animals, feral animals, and FIV and FeLV positive cats.
Dog & Kitty City relies completely on donations from individuals and corporations. If you are interested, there are many ways in which you can help us. We are a non-profit 501.c3 organization, which means that all donations are tax deductible. Our service to the animals depends completely on the generosity of the community and our dedicated volunteers. For more information, visit our website at http://dognkittycity.org.
We are able to help homeless animals only through the continued support from people like you. If you are interested in making a donation to help us continue to provide assistance for homeless pets, please click the PayPal button below.
Our mission has always been to make life better for animals by:
ADOPTING A DKC DOG OR CAT
Animals are available for adoption from the shelter, as well as off-site locations on weekends. We have a thorough application and reference check policy, and many knowledgeable volunteers who can help you find a pet that is best suited for your lifestyle.

ANIMAL SURRENDER POLICY
Dog & Kitty City deals primarily with the homeless animals of Dallas and strives to be an integral part of a great city where all life is valued and cared for. If you have an animal who needs help, we accept them on a space available basis by appointment only. We must also require a surrender fee. If we are full at the shelter but we accept your animal into our foster program with you as the foster parent, we will support you in every way including paying for the costs of medical, food, and sterilization of the animal. We encourage you to attend our Adopt-A-Pets with the animals and post a picture and bio of the animal on our website.
If you love dogs and cats, we offer plenty of opportunities for you to express this love through our volunteer program. If you long to be around animals, you may be interested in the following:
