 We are so grateful our Adoption Ambassador program has had such huge success! We highlight one dog at a time. Each new Ambassador is chosen based on length of stay, temperament, personality and is just not having much luck of finding a new home. Our hope is that it continues to be a highlight for our shelter and help more of the animals in our care. Keep an eye on our Facebook Page for further adventures! The dogs would love it if the community would stop in to meet them as well as one of our Animal Control Officers. Its an excellent chance to get out for a special lunch date and get to know a little more about the animal shelter, our animals and our officers.  We look forward to what the new program holds for our little shelter and we hope to have the communities support and involvement. 


Our fourth Ambassador has been adopted!! Tracker has been with us since October 9th, 2021 and after his debut at Canes Chicken, he was adopted by a wonderful family who plans on keeping this fella happy with a lifetime supply of balls. He even gets to go to soccer games! Let's hope he doesn't try to outshine the players!

Odin was the first dog we took on this adventure. The program was a success! Riviera's located at 3534 Hickory Tree Rd, Balch Springs, TX 75180 hosted Odin's outings and provided him treats each visit. Thank you Rivieras! Odin came to us in the beginning of June. Towards the end of August he was FINALLY noticed by a loving family and adopted!!

Zoey was our second Adoption Ambassador. She was surrendered to us at the end of July. Her new forever family saw her Facebook live posts and soon arrived to adopt her in the middle of September. Sonic, located at 3628 Shepherd Ln, Balch Springs TX 75180, hosted Zoey's outings this time and always had a pup cup ready for her! Thank you Sonic!!
