Help the most vulnerable shelter pets in Dallas.

About Us

We are the official, non-profit fundraising partner to Dallas Animal Services (DAS), one of the largest dog and cat intake shelters in the country - caring for 24,000+ pets each year.


DAS envisions a sustainable live release rate of 90%+ through its Dallas90 initiative. Friends of DAS supports the shelter and its Dallas90 vision through these focus areas:

Happy animals are less stressed, which increases quality of life and likelihood of adoption.

Foster care prepares pets for adoption by providing a safe and loving temporary home and opens shelter space for new intakes.

Proper medical equipment ensures better health and survival for pets.

“Friends of DAS helps us to fulfill urgent needs as they arise. Their partnership, and the community’s support, enable us to adjust our operations and continue saving lives.”
