On March 24, 2020, Grand Prairie Animal Services is launching the Fan Fast-Track Program to ensure homeless animals are able to be routed for adoption and go home with their new families as soon as possible. Animals will be eligible for fast-track on a first come, first serve basis (based on acceptable adoption applications). Normal stray waits will be observed to ensure that animals are reunited with their owners whenever possible, but this program will allow unclaimed animals to have a lucky family waiting to visit them and finalize an adoption as soon as they are available.
In partnership with Dallas County, GPAS launched the Home for Hounds Program in March 2017 to help shelter dogs in need become more adoptable and jail inmates more employable. To date, over 100 dogs have found homes with the help of this program. Learn more about Home for Hounds including how to adopt one of the trained hounds or donate to the program.
