Our vision is to lead the nation in compassionate care of animals while finding positive outcomes for all placeable pets through innovative shelter operations and community engagement.
Dallas90 is a community outreach campaign designed to generate support of and participation in DAS' effort to find positive outcomes for all healthy and behaviorally sound pets, which we believe exceeds 90% of our shelter population.
For the first time in our organization's history, DAS exceeded a 90% live release rate (number of animals leaving the shelter with a live outcome) in December 2018. This was achieved while also bringing in a record number of loose dogs from the community. However, this live release rate is not yet sustainable; we need the help of our community to continue to save as many lives as possible.
