Grand Prairie Animal Services and Prairie Paws Adoption Center encourage responsible pet ownership and maintain a safe city by offering field enforcement services, educational programs and pet adoptions for Grand Prairie residents.
Urgent Fosters Needed in May!
We are seeking the public’s help temporarily housing animals while construction crews tear out ceiling panels to install new ductwork and knock down walls to complete new kennels. The construction is predicted to begin in May and will approximately take one month to complete. It will not affect the operating hours of the shelter, but will temporarily displace over 20 dogs (medium-large size) and 20 cats.
Looking for a dog that's already trained? Take a look at our hounds in the Home for Hounds program! The dogs are being trained for five weeks at the Dallas County Jail by the inmates under the direction of a professional dog trainer.
The Rover Sleepover Program allows you to help dogs of the Grand Prairie Animal Shelter find a new home! You can take the dog home for a few nights (usually over the weekend) give them a chance to decompress from the shelter and provide them with a chance to meet potential adopters.
We recommend taking the dog to the park, department stores that allow pets (remember to call and check with your local store before bringing the dog!), or to a dog-friendly restaurant.
We provide you with an adopt-me-vest, collar/tags and/or harness, food, food bowls, etc. (upon availability)—you provide a safe, loving environment to get our dogs noticed and into their forever homes.
