Dog & Kitty City is operated by the Humane Society of Dallas County. Our purpose is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the indigent, abused and neglected animals of Dallas. Our shelter provides a service in educating the Dallas community on responsible pet ownership. Dog & Kitty City has operated for over 30 years as a no kill animal shelter. We are a 501.c3 non profit organization and do not receive any tax support. We rely solely on private donations. Our service to the animals depends completely on the generosity of the community and on committed, dedicated volunteers.
We subscribe to a true no-kill philosophy-- none are "too ugly to adopt." We do not screen requests, except to provide better information about rehoming-- e.g., old animals do not do well in shelters and owners should do everything in their power to find alternate accommodations. We only refuse on the basis of no room. We accept the responsibility of spay/neuter, shots, behavioral adjustment. It is one of the reasons we ask for a surrender fee -- to help absorb the cost.
