Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Dallas – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year. Kittens Inc has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption.

Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center provides animal sheltering, care and control services for the City of Dallas. Dogs and cats are evaluated by our staff after their stray hold is over if they have not been reclaimed by their owners. Dogs and cats that are healthy and have good temperaments are moved into our adoption program, space permitting. We always have a large variety of pets available. And when you adopt a shelter pet, you're not only getting a loving, lifelong companion, but you're also saving the life of a precious animal. Please come visit us. Your new best friend is just waiting to meet you!


You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Dallas pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Dallas is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Dallas animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Please join us every Saturday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at PetSmart in Dallas () and help get our Fidos adopted! Even if you can't volunteer for the whole day, please consider transporting the dogs!The goal of our Foster Program is to find forever homes for feral kittens and shelter cats. The Foster Program will match foster volunteers with cats and kittens from local TNR colonies and shelters. Dallas Pets Alive! can provide medical treatment or socialization in a foster home setting, until these cats are ready to be adopted. DPA! volunteers maintain a database of cats who are ready for adoption and guide people through the adoption process.The Cat Program at Dallas Pets Alive! aims to decrease the homeless cat population within Dallas in two ways: by promoting the adoption of shelter cats and by participating in trap-neuter-release initiatives for feral cats. Our volunteers participate in the fostering, adoption counseling and humane trapping and transport of Dallas cats.
Sometimes bringing a pet into your life is a noble, beautiful thing. Dallas Animal Services is the organization that takes to the streets, responding to calls about animal welfare, and provides the critters they pick up a temporary shelter. But they need you to come in and adopt the pets into a loving home.
