Police Pup Wednesday


Officer Johnston hung out with Kia at Main St Fest this weekend! Kia is a 1 year old Labrador Retriever mix. You may have heard or seen Kia before since she was one of the pups in our first group who joined the Home for Hounds program with the Dallas Country Jail. She learned sit, shake and lay down while being trained by her inmate. She is great with adults but she shies away from young children and would thrive in a home with older children or just adults. She loves to be active and would love to be a running buddy. She is also definitely a water dog and would love to go swimming with you. She also gets along well with other dogs! Since returning to the shelter, Kia was regressing so she was sent back in the Home for Hounds round 2 for more extensive training! You can still fill out an application on this beautiful girl and be ready to welcome her home when she finishes her training program!

Firefighter Friday


Ryder spent some time at Station 9 with Firefighter Jezak! Ryder is a handsome 3 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He enjoys affection, going for walks, children, other dogs, and above all else, treats! If you are interested in this handsome boy, stop by Prairie Paws to visit with him!

Foster Dog of the Week


Spotty (A143032) is a 7-year old, black Labrador Retriever mix. She has been in a foster home since August 11th 2016. She is a very easy going, mellow girl that walks great on a leash. She is dog selective so she will need to meet any other dogs in the home before she is adopted. She needs an adopter who will be patient with her and give her lots of love and attention!! We think she would do best in a home without small children. If you are interested in meeting Spotty, contact the shelter to set up a meeting at 972-237-8575.

Staff Pick


Kimmel has been with our shelter for over a year now and has proved herself to be an exceptional Animal Care Technician! Her kind nature and love for the big dogs has helped her to excel in her position; as she spends most of her days working in our large animal kennels! People and the animals love Kimmel, and we are proud to have her on our team!


Kimmel’s pick of the week was Earl. Shortly after taking this photos, the handsome Earl found his forever home! Happy Tails Earl!

Featured Shelter Pet

little john

Little John (A151579) is an 2-year-old, black and white male, Staffordshire mix. He is altered. He arrived as a stray on March 23rd, 2017. He's a little leery of other dogs so we recommend a meet and greet if you currently have any others!
