Mission Statement

At Dallas Pets Alive, our mission is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals. We take an innovative approach to animal rescue and believe in creating a paradigm shift in the way our community views animal rescue. Adoption is not only the right thing to do but THE thing to do. *OUR GOAL: To one day make all of North Texas No-Kill



Our organization is run mostly by volunteers, and all of our pets are housed by dedicated foster families throughout North Texas.

We rescue and help the healthy and treatable pets at greatest risk for euthanasia at our partner shelters. We also provide assistance and resources to pet owners having problems so significant that they need to surrender their pets to a shelter.

In our rescue program, we focus on:

  • Rescuing healthy and treatable pets at North Texas shelters at the greatest risk of being euthanized
  • Reducing owner surrender through our Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) program
  • Opening kennel space by transporting pets to partners in the U.S. and Canada in need of adoptable animals
  • Challenging the way our community views rescue animals. We believe that adoption is not only right thing to do but THE thing to do!

*At this time, we do not accept court-ordered service hours nor track community service hours.

*Our organization does not currently have an established office location, however in March 2023 DPA opened up an Adoption Container.

Absolutely love volunteering at DPA! The organization is full of dedicated, caring individuals who are passionate about animal rescue and connecting with the community. In addition to in-person, they offer many virtual volunteer roles and are very responsive -- two things which are not always easy to find when seeking volunteer work. It is a place where you can share and learn skills, while knowing you are making a positive impact on the lives of so many sweet animals. Highly recommend!

First time heard of this organization and like I think it's a great organization for a lot of people that are dog or cat lovers to adopt.

I love Dallas Pets Alive! I truly believe in the mission, values, culture, purpose, and volunteers. I enjoy that there are opportunities to volunteer virtually and in person. DPA believes that every volunteer contributes to the bigger picture. Love the opportunities to volunteer virtually (anywhere in the world) or in person!

Stagnant management unwilling to take feedback from professional-level volunteers. Poorly organized, open for liability & security risks. Organization lacks accountability, transparency, and adaptability.

i have been with this organization since January 2017. I am a volunteer Coordinator and I love it. There is constant communication and always room for growth within the organization. Dallas Pets alive has exceeded my expectations time and time again. I would definitely recommend this organization to other people that I know.

I helped out with a PASS event at the Dallas Animal Services. The group is working to make a difference in animal rescue. They do a lot to take in and rescue animals.

DPA would say "Yes we would like your commitment! We appreciate it!" Then would disappear. Had a phone interview with someone in charge of their online volunteers and she didn't ever call me at the approved time that we both agreed on. I tried again a few months after the incident, with the same outcome. They just disappear as if they don't care if they have volunteers or not.
