Markit Group Volunteer Day
Monday, 29 June 2015

Markit is an international financial services provider. They approached us about a group volunteer day and visited the shelter on June 10th.


The group helped with doggy baths and general socializing with dogs and cats, and had such a good time they are coming back once a month to support the shelter!

Thank You, Mecox Gardens!
Saturday, 20 June 2015

This past weekend, Mecox Gardens hosted for us a Mutts, Meows & Margaritas celebration to celebrate the end of their month-long fundraiser. Their goal was to help us raise $2500, which is the materials cost to renovate one room at the shelter. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mecox Gardens as they were able to raise $4400 for us! It was such a fun day! We talked, laughed, drank margaritas, and played with some of our adoptable and very adorable animals that were able to get some great exposure as well. Thank you again, Mecox Gardens!

Mom Cats of Dog and Kitty City 2015
Thursday, 30 April 2015




JUST IN TIME for Mother's Day, we're highlighting all the great mother cats awaiting adoption at Dog & Kitty City/HSDC. All of these furry moms arrived at our shelter doorstep with a litter of babies and some of them even did double duty nursing abandoned kittens that may have arrived as stragglers.


These lovely spayed moms are available for a special adoption fee of $50 during the month of May.


We're located at 2719 Manor Way, Dallas, TX 75235. Shelter hours are 11:45 AM - 5 PM, closed Tuesdays and holidays. Phone: 214-350-7387. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


Astra is a staff favorite! She's a black and white shorthair who is 4 years old. She's slightly round, which just adds to her allure. She purrs every time someone pets her.


Cleo arrived at our shelter in May 2008 as a one year old with her litter of newborns. She is a bob-tail, a little shy and will dart away if you approach her too fast. Once she gets to know you, she loves her strokes and will sit and purr all the while.


Carina is such a pretty petite mom cat. She's a black/gray tabby who is 3 years old. Just look at those pretty eyes and you'll fall for her quickly.

Not All Stray Dogs Are Homeless
Thursday, 23 April 2015

April 23 is National Lost Dog Awareness Day. Shelters and rescues across the United States use this day to bring attention to the many dogs in their care who have family looking for them. We live in a world where people sometimes assume the dogs they find are unwanted. Lost Dog Awareness Day has the stats to prove them wrong.



Lost Dogs of America (LDOA), a coalition of states, including Texas, has documented over 42,000 reunions since 2011. Lost Dogs of Texas has helped with 8,000 reunions. LDOA facilitated these reunions by providing tips to owners, by using Facebook pages for individual states, and by providing free flyers courtesy of HelpingLostPets.com.

A little prevention can save a lot of stress. Remember:

  1. Always keep your dog on a leash when outside your home.
  2. Your dog should always wear a collar that has current license, rabies, and ID tags attached.
  3. Get your dog microchipped.

There will be a general question and answer session as well.

Where: Reverchon Recreation Center, 3505 Maple Ave
Who: Scott Sheaffer, CDBC, CPDT-KA
Cost: $10 for pre-register, $15 at the door
