This Thanksgiving, the Humane Society of Dallas County would like to take a moment to share our gratitude and thanks to all of the many people who make running this shelter possible.


HSDC is thankful for all of the financial supporters who give your monetary support to our shelter. We’ve renovated the cat rooms, dog runs, cages, and numerous items in our shelter because of your generosity. Without you to help us operate we would have to close our doors. You are invaluable to the maintenance and smooth running of our shelter.


We’re thankful for all of the volunteers who donate their time to really help us out. You come out to events, you foster our youngest and special needs animals, you raise awareness and you raise money through our annual raffle. This job would be too overwhelming without your assistance making it all possible. This includes our Luv-a-Pet volunteers who go to the PetSmart adoptions center to spend time with our cats, and our Adopt-a-Pet volunteers who come out to our weekend dog events to show off our dogs. We also are thankful to our in-house shelter socializers and our dog walkers. You make sure our animals receive individualized social attention and focus in order to help them shine for the people who want to give them a forever home.


We are also thankful to our webmasters Cristina and Gabriel of low-fat cats design and to our social media correspondents. You keep the public informed of everything that’s going on at the shelter and give out all the information about our animals, our needs, special circumstances and events in an internet age where what is online is what brings the focus to our shelter and our cause.


All of us working together help make a huge difference in the lives of the animals in our care. We at the Humane Society of Dallas County rely on every person who brings their time, talent, and help to us in order to give the animals in our care a second chance at tomorrow. Thank you!
