Prairie Paws offers adoption of pets, including dogs, cats and other small animals. Prairie Paws takes in homeless pets from Grand Prairie and provides them with health and wellness care before being placed for adoption.
Grand Prairie Animal Services encourages responsible pet ownership and maintain a safe city by offering field enforcement services, educational programs, and pet health and wellness for Grand Prairie residents.
How do I find my lost pet? The first thing you should do is file a Lost Pet Report with our shelter and any surrounding shelters. This report will allow us to have a file of your pet, and in the event that they arrive at our shelter, we can contact you. File a Lost Pet Report.
Last year, Grand Prairie Animal Services took in over 1,292 underaged kittens at the shelter during Kitten Season. This season, typically ranging from spring through summer, refers to the time of year when many litters of kittens are born. At minimum, a kitten must be 2lbs and 8 weeks to be adopted out to a loving family. This population of adorable furbabies creates one of the biggest challenges for our city’s shelter.
If you have a big heart and an uninhabited bathroom (easy space for cleaning!), we can almost certainly find you a pair of temporary kitten houseguests. While neonatal kittens may need around the clock care, some kittens simply need a place to crash and cuddle for a couple weeks before being ready for adoption. Register to Foster Kittens.
Furry adoptable friends have been available all over Grand Prairie and surrounding areas since the Prairie Paws Adoption Center's Waggin' Wagon started rolling in July 2013. The air-conditioned and heated trailer travels around Grand Prairie and surrounding areas with up to 21 cats and dogs, making animal adoptions more convenient for citizens. All animals on the trailer are available for adoption for only $35. Most animals are sterilized and have been vaccinated. Waggin' Wagon employees accept cash, checks and all credit cards except American Express as payment for the adopted pets.
The Waggin' Wagon's exterior design features psychedelic colors with photos of actual Grand Prairie shelter animals. It's definitely easy to spot when out on location!
"The Waggin’ Wagon will make it easier for people to see the precious dogs and cats we have available at Prairie Paws," said Danielle Tate, Prairie Paws Adoption Center Manager. "We hope it will greatly increase the number of animals that are adopted from our shelter."
