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 tens of thousands of pets every 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:
