Adopt a Cat for $10 in June
Wednesday, 01 June 2016

$10 cat adoptions all June long!! This does not apply to kittens, just cats over the age of 1 year.


Between June 1 and June 30, 2016, our shelter is participating in Best Friends Animal Society's Father's Day cat adoption campaign. Visit our shelter and adopt our adult cats for $10!



The Humane Society of Dallas County is a partner in the Best Friends' No More Homeless Pets® Network, which focuses on building relationships and working with rescue organizations and municipal shelters across the country to end the killing of dogs and cats in our nation’s shelters.
