Dallas Animal Services’ shelter is filled to its highest capacity since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the agency is asking willing, able, and qualified adopters and fosters to take home a cat or dog this week.
It’s free to adopt any pet right now, although the agency says it really needs people to take some medium-sized and large dogs off its hands. Go here to see some of the adorable dogs now up for adoption. I see quite a few potential best friends.
The shelter at Westmoreland and I-30 in West Dallas will open to in-person visitors Wednesday, but you can also adopt online and schedule a curbside pickup, or attend one of several pop-up adoption events being scheduled in the near future. Another option is to visit the PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center near Coit and Campbell roads in Far North Dallas.
Here’s the full announcement from DAS with more details:
