We take in strays, owner surrenders, and also pull from shelters with high euthanasia rates. We focus on the dogs that need it most, taking all the time they need to be rehabilitated and ensuring they receive all medical care they require to be healthy.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Dallas-Fort Worth has a significant issue with overpopulation. Many shelters across the metroplex are beyond capacity and having to euthanize daily. Did you know that each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized? If less than 2% of pet-owning households in the US fostered one pet a year, unnecessary euthanasia could be eliminated TOMORROW according to the Petco Foundation.

Over 6 million animals enter the shelters annually, whether they be owner surrenders, strays, or animals taken from abusive situations. We strive to save the at-most risk dogs in Texas by partnering with our local shelters who have high euthanasia rates. Our goal is to help increase their support through networking, more rescue partners, elevation of foster opportunities, improved marketing for "VIP" dogs, and more, on top of the dogs we pull ourselves. We believe that by improving awareness and support for these high rate shelters with minimal community support, we can make small changes that can lead to a greater result. Additionally, we also take in owner surrenders and strays to help reduce the number of dogs entering the local shelters. We have a passion for dogs who have been dealt an unlucky hand in life, whether it be due to trauma, neglect, or an abusive situation. We believe every dog deserves the chance to thrive, and recognize those that are emotionally impacted, often in addition to physical impact, need extra love and support. By allowing each dog in our care to take all the time they need to be rehabilitated, we are able to ensure they get all forms of care they require to be healthy and happy.
