DISD Common Cents Program
Friday, 22 May 2015

Many of the DISD elementary, middle and high schools participate in the Common Cents Non-Profit Annual Fund Drive which has been in existence for 17 years. This program teaches young children the importance of giving back to the community.


This year HSDC / DKC was chosen by the students of DeGolyer Elementary School to be their non-profit. These amazing kids raised $531.24 for the shelter during the fund drive.


A BIG Thank You to the students, teachers, and parents of DeGolyer -- from Mishka and everyone at DKC!


Mom Cats of Dog and Kitty City 2015
Thursday, 30 April 2015




JUST IN TIME for Mother's Day, we're highlighting all the great mother cats awaiting adoption at Dog & Kitty City/HSDC. All of these furry moms arrived at our shelter doorstep with a litter of babies and some of them even did double duty nursing abandoned kittens that may have arrived as stragglers.


These lovely spayed moms are available for a special adoption fee of $50 during the month of May.


We're located at 2719 Manor Way, Dallas, TX 75235. Shelter hours are 11:45 AM - 4:45 PM, closed Tuesdays and holidays. Phone: 214-350-7387. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


Astra is a staff favorite! She's a black and white shorthair who is 4 years old. She's slightly round, which just adds to her allure. She purrs every time someone pets her.


Cleo arrived at our shelter in May 2008 as a one year old with her litter of newborns. She is a bob-tail, a little shy and will dart away if you approach her too fast. Once she gets to know you, she loves her strokes and will sit and purr all the while.


Carina is such a pretty petite mom cat. She's a black/gray tabby who is 3 years old. Just look at those pretty eyes and you'll fall for her quickly.
