Thank You to Our Junior Volunteers
Tuesday, 12 August 2008

DKC's LuvAPet Director, Claudia Bankston, had a one year celebration for three outstanding junior volunteers. The boys -- Teddy Herriman and John and Josh Rector -- started working school community service and liked it so much they have volunteered almost every weekend to help find permanent, loving homes for the cats and kittens in the adoption center.

 

These boys donate catnip, toys, scratching posts and other playground equipment for the furry residents. They work with difficult, shy, frightened cats and hold and love them for hours. These boys are naturals when it comes to working with cats.

 

They proudly display their DKC t-shirts and we proudly acknowledge the dedication of this junior team.

 

The LuvAPet center, located in the Petsmart at Forest and Inwood, is an offsite adoption center, featuring DKC cats and kittens. We always need volunteers to visit the animals in residence and help with their care as well as interacting with potential adopters. If you are interested in helping, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and specify "LuvAPet."

 

If you would prefer helping with dog adoptions, we hold off site adoptions every Saturday at the Petsmart. Again, email us and specify "Adopt A Pet" if you can help.

 
New Tethering Law
Tuesday, 22 July 2008

Amended Section 7.3.1 of the City of Dallas animal ordinance is now in effect. It prohibits tethering of dogs except in specific instances (see below). The ordinance specifies the following:

  • Requires that no dog be tethered unless it is in the immediate possession and control of its owner. An exception will be made if the dog is properly tethered for a period no longer than necessary for the owner to complete a temporary task.
  • If and when a dog is tethered it must be tethered in a manner that does not allow the dog to leave the owner’s premises; does not allow the dog to become entangled; and allows the dog access to food, water and appropriate shelter.
