Directly benefiting Dallas Animal Services (DAS) by supporting programs and services that further its vision of providing compassionate care of shelter animals and finding positive outcomes for all placeable pets.
As the third largest dog and cat intake shelter in the country, DAS envisions a sustainable live release rate of above 90% through its Dallas90 initiative. Friends of DAS supports the Dallas90 vision through these focus areas:


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

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

Proper medical equipment ensures better health and survival for pets.

Shelter Support


Financial assistance for other shelter needs mobilizes DAS staff and is critical to the overall success of the Dallas90 campaign.

“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.”
