Bogart's Success Story
Tuesday, 13 October 2009

We are very happy to share with you Bogart's success story.

 

Bogart is a gray tabby/Maine Coon mix who came to the shelter six months ago when he was found wandering on the streets in Irving. That was quite a feat since he is blind, born with no eyes. He immediately captured the attention and care of shelter cat volunteers. He was sweet with people and wanted to make friends and he navigated the room easily, finding his food, litter box and jumping on and off shelves and tables very sure of himself. He was also playful and would gnaw at a backpack's strips with great pleasure. He knew people by their sound and greeted them by rubbing against their legs.

 

However, he was frustrated to be confined to sickbay, and sometimes he would attack people that made sudden approaches towards him. He also dominated the other cats, making up for his lack of sight with aggressiveness. He was adopted after one month and immediately returned to the shelter after he injured the arm of his adopter, and then he spent three more months in sickbay. In a kill shelter he would not have been given much time- with his special needs, he was the walking definition of unadoptable. But the volunteers of Dog & Kitty City hoped to find him a right place one day. He was not wild or out of control; he was simply not comfortable there.

 

And then, about a month ago, Bogart found a foster home, which is where the success part comes in. Read the whole story here.

Toys for Pets
Monday, 12 October 2009

Nicki Gray, her son Peyton and her good friend Aurelia Brennan with two of her girls, Juliette and Ava, came to the shelter and donated boxes and boxes of toys.

 

The cats (our many cats!) are enjoying the cat toys. Our friends also brought so many dogs toys (plush and chewy) that we shared them with other dog rescue groups including Paws in the City, Lab Rescue, Cocker Rescue and Pug Rescue. So there are a lot of happy pups in the metroplex now.

 

Thank you Nicki, Peyton, Aurelia, Juliette and Ava for this very generous gift and the good time you all gave the dogs and cats at Dog & Kitty City.

 

Here are photos of the fun everyone had. You can view the large versions by clicking on the thumbnails.

UPDATED: Dog Day at Lee Harvey's
Thursday, 06 August 2009

Update: Go to our blog to read about the event and see some pictures!

 

 

The Humane Society of Dallas County brings dogs, treats and fun to Dog Day at Lee Harvey’s. Every Dog Day, the gates stay closed so pups and their people can hang out and mingle in the yard.

 

Bring your pup and your cash – we will be selling "doggie bags" of special canine treats and tees to raise money for Dog & Kitty City, the Humane Society’s no-kill shelter.

 

Some friendly shelter residents looking for adoptive parents will be on hand to meet and greet, and the most talented, best dressed and friendliest pups will win prize trophies!

 

Please come to our August 30th Dog Day and help us keep the shelter open – it’s the only no-kill animal shelter in the city of Dallas.

 

Date:Sunday, August 30, 2009
Time:6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location:Lee Harvey's, 1807 Gould Street, Dallas, TX

Three Things
Tuesday, 14 July 2009

Kroger's Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program for the benefit of nonprofit organizations started again on July 1st. The Humane Society of Dallas County is participating too! You can help us by connecting our barcode with your Kroger Plus Card, so that every time you shop using the card Kroger will contribute a percentage from your eligible purchases to the donation fund. Please follow the instructions in this flier - just print it and show it to the cashier on your next shopping trip. You can help our animals by doing your usual shopping, isn't that neat?

 

After the volunteer orientation on Sunday July 26th, the shelter will be closed to the public and to volunteers on Monday and Tuesday (July 27th and 28th), for maintenance.

 

And here's a cute blog Emily Cooper wrote about keeping the T kitten family in foster care: memsysplace.com. Topaz's kittens -Thackeray, Thoreau, Tinkerbell, Truffles and Tulip- should be ready for adoption by the end of this week.

Give Bogart a Home - Updated
Tuesday, 14 April 2009

Update on May 13th: Bogart was returned to the shelter after being briefly adopted into a home. He got aggressive, which is symptomatic of his defensiveness due to being blind. We need a really special, patient person to step forward and try with this little man.

 

This little boy is Bogart. He is blind; born without any eyes. Bogart is between 1 - 2 years old, a gray tabby/Maine Coon mix. He is a healthy little boy, neutered, has all his shots, is microchipped and is "looking" for his forever home. He was found in Irving, wandering along the side of the road.
