Helping paws in need

Donate Now and Be a Lifesaver for Animals

Our purpose is to promote adoption and provide a safe, healthy, and compassionate environment for the cats and dogs of Dallas County for as long as needed.

Your Paws Cause – Tailor Your Support

Your tax-deductible donations support the many needs of the hundreds of animals that come into our care every year.

One-Time Donation

Every donation, small or large, makes a difference for our animals and contributes to their care and placement into a forever home.

Donate Monthly

Monthly giving supports our mission and provides comfort and reassurance of care for all the animals served by HSDC.

Become A Guardian Angel

Sponsor a special animal who has a harder time finding a permanent home with a recurring donation through our Guardian Angel Program. This is a wonderful, personal way to make a difference in their lives!

Corporate Sponsorships

Our corporate sponsorship program for HSDC is your business’s opportunity to support furry friends in need. Together, let’s build a community where everytail wags with joy!

New Building Fund

HSDC needs to expand in order to help more animals. Please consider donating to our building fund. Can you help us build for the animals?
