Dallas Animal Services seeks fosters to get ready to Clear the Shelters
Dallas Animal Services (DAS) invites local animal lovers to spend their last few weeks of summer saving a life by becoming a foster for one of the 100 DAS dogs in need during our Summer Blockhead Block Party. Each foster will provide a temporary home for one of our longest-stay medium or large dogs until dropping them off at our PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center for their chance to find a forever home during Clear the Shelters on August 17.
Whether you’re a new or established foster, you can pick up a foster dog by visiting the shelter during open hours and talking with a member of our team to find the right pup for you. Staff will also provide you with all the information you need to care for the dog during their stay in your home.
DAS always provides all medical care for the animals in our foster homes, but during the Block Party the first 25 fosters will also receive dog crates.
During this year’s Clear the Shelters free adoption event, DAS hopes to find loving homes for more than 300 pets in a single day. The Block Party will help to make that goal possible by ensuring space limitations at the shelter do not prevent adoptable dogs from being featured at the event.
DAS will match fosters with dogs that meet their needs, whether the volunteers live in a house or an apartment, have other pets, kids, work from home or at an office.
Residents interested in getting involved in the Summer Blockhead Block Party, visit DAS at 1818 N. Westmoreland Rd., Dallas, TX 75212
