'Tis the Season to Be Jolly
Friday, 12 December 2008

... And DKC has two fun events this weekend!


Photos with Santa at Petsmart, Forest and Inwood. The DKC Adopt a Pet team will be there from 11:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and Sunday. You can get your holiday photo with your pet, and benefit the shelter at the same time.


Raffle drawing is on Saturday at the shelter at 1:00 p.m. Come see if you won a prize and invite all the folks who bought tickets to win. Prizes will be announced on the website.


Join at the fun at both events -- and help make the holiday happier for our furry friends!

Found Dogs
Friday, 12 December 2008

Found two dogs at the intersection of Homer St. and Vickery Blvd. on Monday, December 8 at 11 am. Neither dog has ID tags and neither is microchipped.


Male purebred Shar Pei is young, obedient; timid at first, but then very sweet. He is not neutered and was found with a fancy red leather collar (but no tags).


Female Golden Retriever (?) mix is the sweetest, most gentle girl with the best disposition ever. She seems very young - maybe 1 year old, and weighs about 40 lbs with long white and tan hair.


If you know these dogs, please contact (214)-515-0493 to retrieve them.

Blue Collar Report

Special thanks to Kimberly Jones of the Blue Collar Bar who organized this great event on November 23rd.

Artists who contributed to the auction include Andra Rogers, Lorene Herrera, Ed Hall, Adiel Cohen, Erica Sutherland, Erica Felicella, Mark Merchant, Alicia Stepp Woody, Dana McGuire, Jeremy Hughs and Jorge Perez. Items ranged from drawings, paintings, photographs to tattoo art, a wonderful array of local art.


Many local businesses donated almost 50 raffle items to help make the event a success. They also collected many gifts for the furry friends including food, litter, toys and beds.

We Need Your Help
Thursday, 06 November 2008

The Dallas Morning News ran our story today.


The Humane Society of Dallas County's shelter has stopped accepting surrendered animals for the first time in its 30-year history because of financial problems.


The no-kill shelter, Dog and Kitty City, is facing a double whammy: Donations have fallen roughly 75 percent since last year and adoptions have dropped 25 percent as fewer people are willing to take on the extra cost of caring for a new pet.


The shelter, near Love Field, is about $2,000 short of meeting its monthly budget of $12,000 for November, leaving it financially unable to spay and neuter cats, said Sandra Mustafa, the shelter's director. The shelter currently has about 300 cats and 20 dogs.


Read the rest of the coverage on the Dallas Morning News.


The very kind James Ragland, Dallas Morning News metro columnist, has started a donation challenge through the DMN Metro Blog. Our animals are thanking you all for your help.

Dogs Celebrate Halloween at the Katy Trail
Sunday, 02 November 2008

UPDATE: You can buy online raffle tickets right here.


On Saturday, November 1st, dog people and dog admirers gathered in front of the Cork wine shop at the entrance to the Katy Trail for the annual Dog Trot and Halloween dog costume contest.


The cheerful weather was on our side, and Heather Knox' talented live performance from her latest album, El Dorado, provided the perfect soundtrack. After the trot came the dog costume contest, and the three judges had a hard time choosing among bee dogs, hot dogs, political dogs, royalty dogs, biker dogs and cowboy dogs.


Dog & Kitty City successfully introduced its just-in-time-for-holidays raffle. You will be able to buy raffle tickets online for $5 each starting on Tuesday and over the next six weeks, so make sure to check back for updates!


We have 54 photos of the event in the following gallery, including all the doggie costumes we could catch on camera. Click on the thumbnails to expand the pictures!

Vote for Us!

These programs make it very easy for you to help us with just a few clicks! There are three programs on which DKC supporters can vote for the shelter and help win a prize. Each of these sites supports rescue groups who work to care for homeless animals and each seeks to raise awareness about the importance of taking action to save these little lives. Our shelter funds are really tight right now and any help would be a godsend.


Care2 is hosting America's Favorite Animal Shelter Contest (2008). Care2 will donate a total of $15,000 to the local animal shelters or rescue groups with the most votes, and Adopt-a-Pet.com offers a $1,000 donation to a randomly selected participating shelter each week for five weeks, plus rewards for recruiters. Please visit the site and VOTE for Humane Society of Dallas!
