Only 4 days left to help HSDC/Dog & Kitty City secure a permanent spot on GlobalGiving!
We're now $1,360 and 6 donors away from earning a permanent spot on GlobalGiving for additional financial support for the animals in our care. We have until June 30th to meet their $5,000 goal. Please help us spread the word and visit our GlobalGiving link at: http://goto.gg/17389.
Our shelter's efforts to care for abandoned dogs and cats will be a highlighted project. If our project raises $5,000 from at least 40 different donors between June 1st-30th 2014 on GlobalGiving, our project will be featured throughout 2014. On June 11th and 18th, GlobalGiving will match all online donations at 15% until their matching funds reach $5,000.
Online donations will be accepted through June 30, 2014 until 11:59PM EST. Check donations also count towards this challenge if received no later than June 26, 2014. All checks for the GlobalGiving June Open Challenge must be mailed to: GlobalGiving, Attn: Project #17389 HSDC-DKC, 1110 Vermont Ave NW, Suite 550 Washington DC 20005 in order to be counted.
With this challenge, we have a chance to raise $10,000 to help the dogs and cats currently in our care! With your help we are making a difference in saving abandoned animals, finding them great forever homes and providing a safe caring environment for those still awaiting adoption.

Wallace (Bowser) was found wandering the street near the home of his rescuers on a Saturday night. They made every attempt to find his owners and have come to believe that he was abandoned to the streets given his age and other issues – sad indeed!!!
Wallace is a handsome guy but due to his age (he is around 9 or 10), he is suffering from some geriatric health related problems. He is a 62.5 pound Shar Pei – Chinese mix. He is heartworm positive but because his heart and lungs appeared to be okay during his wellness exam, the vet determined that it might be best to let it go untreated. Wallace has other age related issues but he has a great personality and his rescuers are trying to find him a home where he can live out the remainder of his life in peace and comfort – this aging fellow definitely deserves such an act of kindness from someone with a big heart and willing to go the extra mile for him.
Wallace is not at the shelter but in a foster home. If you would like to meet him, please contact us at
to make an appointment.
The Adoption Donation is being waived for this guy!!
Wallace could really use some Guardian Angel support while his rescuers find him a home - will you help?

Save the date - March 8! Join Humane Society Dallas County/DKC at Mutts Canine Cantina from 10am to 2pm. Come enjoy some food and fun with canine companions at this dog friendly restaurant and dog park!
