Become a Guardian Angel!
We are highlighting all the special Dog & Kitty City cats and dogs who have a harder time finding a permanent home. Sponsor one or any of them through our Guardian Angel Program, a wonderful, personal way to make a difference in their lives!
Some cats and dogs are not as adoptable as others due to their age, disposition or disability.
Some have been at the shelter so long that it is their home. As they grow older, they are less adaptable to a new home, so it may be in their best interest for them to stay in the home that they know—the shelter.
Others are shy and retiring and don’t present themselves to potential adopters to the point that they do not get noticed.
Many animals with chronic medical problems or disabilities have a harder time finding homes due to their special needs. We consider them to be dearly loved sanctuary pets.
A sponsorship donation of $20 helps support basic expenses—food, shelter and medical care. You can donate more to cover other expenses, including veterinary care such as exams, bloodwork, vaccinations, and dentals.
If a sponsored animal leaves the shelter, Guardian Angels can select another animal who will benefit from their help. Every opening at the shelter helps another animal in need!
Adam and his brothers, Abbott and Anthony, were rescued by a volunteer who found them living on their own outside her place of work. They were brought to Dog & Kitty City on 10-13-13 with hopes of finding someone to take care of them. Adam has always been the more shy one out of his litter. With treats and love he will slowly come around.
Adam is not available for adoption but he is available for our Guardian Angel Program. Since he can be shy and has been living at our shelter si […]
My name is Batman and I was originally surrendered because my owner had to move. I am kind of a grumpy guy because I have health issues. You see my gums are very sore, and I am frequently in pain, even after my teeth were removed. The shelter takes care of me now, and it will be my forever home. I receive monthly steroid injections to reduce the inflammation, If you want to sponsor me, please contact the shelter.
My name is Eric, and I was found with my sibling living on the streets. I adjusted to shelter life, and I have found friends in the staff, volunteers, visitors, and other cats. I even have a girlfriend named Rosemary. She's a beautiful calico.
I have been adopted 3 times and returned 3 times because I do not adjust to my new home. I hide, stop eating, hyperventilate and completely freak out. The shelter is my forever home, and I am happy here !
Please adopt me as a Guardian Ang […]
Jackson and his siblings, Jefferson, Jaclyn, Jeremy and Jedd, were found with their stray mom on 5/28/2009. A kind human "adopted" mom and had her spayed -- and surrendered the little family to DKC.
Jackson, aka Action Jackson, is a real character. He knows his name, and when you say it, he talks back. He will continue the conversation for as long as you keep it going. Jackson is quite the dude, and he walks with a swagger like he owns the place. If you're an individual with whom Jackson […]
Jedd and his siblings, Jefferson, Jackson, Jaclyn,and Jeremy, were found with their stray mom on 5-28-2009, trying to make a go of it. A kind human "adopted" mom and had her spayed -- and surrendered the little family to DKC.

Hi, my name is Mia and I was surrendered 2-18-15 because of my owner's health. I am a curvy lady who does not like to have her lower half touched. I do love head rubs and sometimes shoulder rubs. I would love to just relax in a home and watch movies all day. Come and meet me so I can so you how cute I can be.
Morgan was found living under a dumpster in Irving on 8-22-2009. One of our volunteers started feeding her and it was very apparent she was a little "throwaway." She responded warmly to attention and wanted nothing more than a tickle and a good meal.
Morgan took some coaxing, as mom had taught her to avoid contact with strangers. Once Morgan realizes you are there for cuddling, you have a friend.
Morgan is not available for adoption but she is available for our Guardian Angel Prog […]
I’m Oreo! I am a older guy who looks like a cookie! I was abandoned, and I am now looking for a nice furever home. I am a cat with feline leukemia (FeLV) and will need to be either the only cat in the home or live with another leukemia cat because the virus can be transferred to other cats. I am easygoing and like attention.
If you would like to adopt me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the shelter.
Perry’s my name. I have always been a shy guy who likes to hang out on the upper shelves. You see I am scared of people and prefer to be with my cat buddies.

I was transferred from Dallas Animal Services years ago and now the shelter is my forever home. If you want to sponsor me, contact the shelter.

I was transferred from Dallas Animal Services so I could make my way in the world. If you are interested in sponsoring me, please contact the shelter.
Shadow is the name! I am a sweet guy that loves affection. I was cared for and brought to the shelter by a nice lady. I am now looking for a nice furever home. I know my chances of adoption are slim because I am feline leukemia positive (FeLV+) and a senior guy, so the shelter may be my furever home.
I live in the feline leukemia room at the shelter with other leukemia positive cats, and I get along well with them, although I do prefer my own space or the catio.
Because I am a c […]

Hello, I'm Sven! I have lived at Dog & Kitty City since June 25, 2018, when I was surrendered to the shelter by my owner because I tested positive for feline leukemia, and she had other cats in the home. I have always been shy with people, but I get along just fine with the other cats in the leukemia room. To be perfectly honest, I really prefer to stay outside on the catio, away from people altogether. I hiss and bare my teeth, umm fangs, when they approach me to scare them away. When it […]

Sweet Vinny was dropped off at the shelter with two siblings on 5-13-2010 when they were tiny kittens. He was not adopted because he was so shy that he never warmed up to potential adopters. He can still be shy with new people, but with some attention he comes around.
