Give Bogart a Home - Updated
Tuesday, 14 April 2009

Update on May 13th: Bogart was returned to the shelter after being briefly adopted into a home. He got aggressive, which is symptomatic of his defensiveness due to being blind. We need a really special, patient person to step forward and try with this little man.


This little boy is Bogart. He is blind; born without any eyes. Bogart is between 1 - 2 years old, a gray tabby/Maine Coon mix. He is a healthy little boy, neutered, has all his shots, is microchipped and is "looking" for his forever home. He was found in Irving, wandering along the side of the road.

Be a Guardian Angel to Oso! - Updated
Thursday, 09 April 2009
Update: Oso is recovering well from his surgery and is very thankful to his guardian angels!


Our little dog, Oso, featured on the website, needs eye surgery. He suffers from entropion- his eyelids are turned inward blocking the eye openings for tear drainage.


Please help Oso with his eye surgery by becoming his guardian angel.


The Guardian Angel Program is available to individuals and businesses through monthly or annual tax deductible donations which help defray the costs of caring for certain animals until they can be adopted. The Guardian Angel Program is a wonderful, personal way to truly help these precious homeless animals until they can "go home" with adoptive families. Read more details on the program here.

(In) Kind Donation
Monday, 16 March 2009

Dog & Kitty City recently received a very welcome aid in the sleek shape of a brand-new shelter van, which you can see in the article pictures. The van arrived to us through the kindness of a corporate donor who wanted to remain anonymous.


A big THANK YOU to the donor and to DKC Public Relations Director Holly Morgan, who was instrumental in getting this donation. Corporate donations are very important to the survival of the shelter.


The new van will be used to transport the shelter dogs and cats to adoption events and temporary adoption centers like Petsmart, which help the animals reach out to more potential adopters.

Tips for a Humane Holiday Season
Monday, 15 December 2008

From American Humane: Holiday Pet-iquette. Here are some ways you can make the upcoming holidays more enjoyable for your pets -- without compromising safety.



  • Take your dog for extra walks to relieve holiday stress for you both.
  • Make sure holiday guests know your pet's routine and food allowances. Disruptions to either can be upsetting and even unhealthy for animals.
  • If your pet is shy or nervous, make sure he has a quiet place to sleep and relax during any holiday gatherings at your home.


  • Dress your pet in costumes that are uncomfortable or hazardous (for example, tying something around a pet's neck is never a good idea).
  • Feed your pet turkey bones, gravy or other rich "people foods" that could cause obstructions or indigestion.
  • Decorate with tempting yet potentially dangerous items, such as tinsel, which could end up impairing a curious pet's digestion.
