Each year, 27,000 dogs and cats are needlessly killed in Dallas city shelters due to overpopulation. In response, the Animal Shelter Commission is proposing a mandatory spay/neuter - breeder registration ordinance. Click here for up-to-the-minute information on this ordinance and click here to sign the petition. The petition is only at 1,500 and we need 10,000 signatures by June 19th, so we need your help! Thanks in advance.
Last fall, Highland Park High School Freshman Leadership Teacher Marilyn Morgan invited Dog & Kitty City to address eight classes at the school. Last month, Volunteer Coordinator Felicia Kalish and Board Member Andy Steingasser visited the school again and discussed HSDC's mission to provide a second chance to homeless animals.
North Texas AmeriCorps programs came together to host a hands-on service project on Thursday, September 21, 9am-1pm, at the Humane Society of Dallas County shelter, Dog & Kitty City, 2719 Manor Way, Dallas, TX 75235. Members took a pledge of service together during the swearing in ceremony and then served side by side to advance the Humane Society's current renovation plans.
The groups included were AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, HIPPY, Dallas YMCA and Dallas Red Cross.
