Police Pup Wednesday


Officer Kelly patrolled Prairie Paws for anyone being too cute. That’s when he and recruiting Officer Tran spotted Clara. Miss Clara (A150584) is a year and a half old red Husky mix, who has been waiting for someone to adopt her since February 16th 2017. Clara knows sit, loves to give kisses, and has come a long way since she came to the shelter. She went from being underweight and very frightened of everyone; to maintaining a healthy weight and loving affection from anyone who shows her any attention. The young girl in her has finally come out and she loves to play!

Firefighter Friday


Rocky (A144391) is on an adventure, an adventure to find his forever home! He will travel high or low and all across Grand Prairie and beyond to find it! His recent travels took him by Station 10 where he got to hang out with Firefighter Smith for a bit. Rocky is a mature gentleman at a dazzling 9 years old. He doesn’t let the soft white fur creeping into his face dampen his youthful spirit. He romps and rolls and likes to chase waves at the lake with the best of them. He is heartworm positive, but his treatment is sponsored! If you have any questions about Rocky or his heartworm treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out.

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


Senior Animal Care Technician Demarie officially came on as full time Animal Care Technician in 2014. Her love and passion for the shelter AND the animals here at Prairie Paws quickly shined through and she was promoted to a Senior position last year! Demarie is very passionate about her position and loves to learn about new and inventive ways to help keep our animals happy. (the animals love her too, and it shows!)

Demarie's pick of the week is Rocky (A144391), a 9 year old pit bull mix, who is heartworm positive but his treatment is sponsored. He is a happy, playful boy, who doesn't let his current circumstances get him down.
