Well hello there! I’m Ricky and I am an adorably sweet and playful 3 year old Chihuahua/Daschund mix that was recently found roaming the streets with my mom, Lucy, and sister, Ethel. I love playing and running around with all my foster siblings and I’m really picking up this training stuff quickly, but truth be told, my favorite thing to do is snuggle. Even though I’m a little guy, I give the best big bear hugs and am a true cuddle buddy at 12 lbs. 

I’m doing really well with manners training and leash walking, and I’m excited to continue learning in my forever home with you! I know I will make a great addition to your family – so hurry up and come meet me, or you’ll have some ‘splainin’ to do!

For more information on adopting or to complete an adoption application, please go to http://www.pawsinthecity.org/adopt.htm or email adoption@pawsinthecity.org.

Felix Update:

I picked Felix out and rescued him from Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center last January. He immediately made himself at home. He is the most laid back and social animal I've ever met! He slept with me, followed me everywhere and became great buddies with my cats Gigi and Charley. I knew whoever met him would fall in love - and that is what happened when his adopter met him. While it was hard saying goodbye, he went to the perfect home. He has a kind and caring mom and a brother he can play with...ironically whose name is also Charlie! He is doing great and is already settled in his new home.

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Oh how my heart yearns for you!

Hey there fur lovers! My name is Peggy Sue and Buddy Holly had it right, I have a love so rare and true. I’m one of the dogs who is a transfer from HEDR due to the situation at Camp Diggy Bones that is URGENTLY looking for a new place to rest my paws, temporarily or FUREVER so please, please, please SHARE me far and wide or just go ahead and foster or adopt me! 

As you can see from my ears and my bushy, curly tail, I’m an adorable Shar-Pei mix. Like my breed, I’m intelligent and know many commands such a sit, down & wait. I also act like a lady on a leash. I’m a tad bit shy at first but once I get comfortable and open up, I want nothing more than your LOVE. I love doggies, humans and doing zoomies around the yard. I can be totally social and play with whatever your family already has like kiddos and doggies or I would love to be your shining star and to be doted on with your affection  I love to be groomed - you know us pretty ladies love to have our hair did! I’m also very gentle, my momma said that’s one of the gifts of being a true lady. 

Oh yeah, completely forgot to tell you I’ve graduated from the Paws of Hope prison training program (3 month training program) where I accomplished being housebroken, crate trained, socialized with humans and dogs and general obedience. 

I’m about 5 years young and going strong. Life is a wonderful thing and I’m ready to move on to the next chapter. Are you the hero or mentor in my story? 

Please email adoption@pawsinthecity.org or foster@pawsinthecity.org for information on adoption or fostering Peggy Sue. You may also find adoption and foster applications on our website at www.pawsinthecity.org.

Urgent situation, your help is needed: rescue organization no longer paying boarding kennel to care for their 296 dogs living there, urgent help is needed from community.

Here is what is needed:
1) Rescue organizations to take a dog or two or three or more- locally and nationwide
2) Foster parents and help coordinating fosters with rescues
3) Adopters
4) Donations of dog food
5) Networking- all over the country... Facebook shares, Email, Pinterest, Twitter...If you know someone at a rescue, contact them
6) Transport- Are you willing to fly a dog? Drive a dog?
7) Experienced dog volunteers to help walk, feed and pick up poop, clean kennels

The dogs are mostly bully breed types, mixed breeds, pit bulls and rotties. The majority are very adoptable.

If you can take a dog or two or more (rescues, fosters or adopters):

Contact Thea:
Email is theayambor@att.net
Phone is:908-500-5531

If you are local to DFW area: Thea, the trainer will email you a list of dogs for you to narrow down who you are interested in. Make an appointment time to meet Thea at Camp Diggy Bones. Once you choose the dog(s), you will go to office at Camp Diggy Bones, call Jason at Happy Endings and let him know name of dogs you are taking, he will fax a transfer document that is signed by you and Happy Endings. This covers our bases in case there is ever any legal question about who the dogs belong to at this point. Then Jason from Happy Endings will send medical records to the rescue. Thea can answer any questions and can send any rescue the list to choose from. So if you know a rescue willing to take a dog, have them get in touch with Thea.

If you are out of town/state: Thea, the trainer will email you a list of dogs to narrow down who you are interested in. Tell her who you would like more information on, she can send you photos and bios of those dogs. Per a phone call, she can answer questions further questions. Once you decide who you want to take, transport arrangements will have to be made. Jason from Happy Endings will fax or email you the transfer paperwork to sign and he will either mail you the medical records or send them with the transporter.

If you can donate food or volunteer-
Contact Gene:
gmason.campdiggybones@gmail.com
214 531 0260

Please forward and network so we can save as many of the 296 dogs as possible.

More info:
Three years ago, Happy Endings made arrangements with Camp Diggy Bones to build kennels for their dogs (they also have a facility in Hewitt but wanted a facility near Dallas). The agreement was Happy Endings would pay Camp Diggy Bones monthly to cover mortgage on kennels, dog food, staff (for feedings, pee/poop pick up, distributing medication, supervision in play yards for exercise), and heat and air in indoor/outdoor kennels. In 2013, funds started to become less and less each month and Camp Diggy Bones went through his personal savings.

The week before Christmas, Happy Endings Founder told the kennel owner she is done sending him money but expects him to continue caring for the dogs until she can find other placement, however kennel owner is unable to provide food, heat and care without that funding. Why is this happening? That is not clear and due to legal reasons we will not give opinions at this time. As this proceeds, those questions may or may not be answered but we hope the community can focus on the best interest of the dogs and their welfare for now.

The dogs are not getting exercise so many will soon go cage crazy. The dogs go through 500lbs of dog food a day. He has been doing the best he can to maintain clean kennels and care for the dogs with the help of only his wife and the trainer who is volunteering her time.

Thanks for your help!

Do you remember Petey? We can’t blame you if you don’t. We posted about him last week, but at the time all we had was a ‘quick and dirty’ photo from the shelter. It really didn’t do this gorgeous boy justice. Well we had some better photos taken yesterday and now look at him. Can you see why we just couldn’t leave him at DAS with the clock running out?

Petey isn’t just gorgeous, though, he’s sweet and gentle and a lot of fun to be around. He plays well with other dogs and is great with adults. We’re not yet sure about kids or cats, but that’s something we’re working to determine. We suspect he’ll do just fine. He does need a little work on his leash skills and his good-dog commands, but he’s intelligent and eager to learn. He's also fairly young and he's only 34 pounds.

Petey really needs a loving foster home where he can work on his manners and get ready for his new forever home. If you would like to be a part of Petey’s journey to his new life, please e-mail foster@pawsinthecity.org or fill out the online application at http://pawsinthecity.org/adopt/foster%20application.htm.

Fred is another rescue who is a transfer from HEDR due to the situation at Camp Diggy Bones that is URGENTLY looking for a place to call home. He is in URGENT need of a foster home or permanent home so please open up your hearts and homes for this downright handsome (approximately 2 years old) Black Lab/Flat Coat Retriever sweetie who will most definitely keep a smile on your face. (If you are unaware of the above mentioned situation, scroll down a few posts and there is a press release from our PITC President.)

Haven’t you always wanted a best friend named Fred? Well, my friend, the opportunity has arisen. I’m a festive fellow who is a typical Lab - I have an insatiable zest for life and love to act like a goofball! True to my breed, I’m a people pleaser and will maintain that adorable puppy like quality all my fellow Lab lovers adore. My joyful nature is contagious so even on your worst day, I’ll be there tail wagging and smiling to turn your frown upside down! To sum it up - I’m a walking party! I ABSOLUTELY love the water so if you have a pool, pond, lake or a doggie pool that sounds fantastic! Although, no pool is necessary at this point - I just need a place to crash, on the fly! OH - any my picture is not the best but trust me, you won’t be disappointed 

At first meet, I might be a little shy but I warm up quickly so don’t let these precious eyes fool ya! I, too, am a graduate from the Paws of Hope prison training program where I spent three months socializing with dogs, humans and learned several commands. I’m also housebroken and crate trained. Because I’m an active boy, I’m looking for a family that will give me regular exercise and would love a home with or without a doggie companion - your call and love kiddos but they probably need to be over age 6 simply because I can be a little clumsy and don’t want to accidentally knock em’ over!

Where are all of our our Lab lovers? Remember Fred is in desperate need for a home ASAP so please SHARE his story! We thank you for your help.

Please email adoption@pawsinthecity.org or foster@pawsinthecity.org for information on adoption or fostering Fred. You may also find adoption and foster applications on our website at www.pawsinthecity.org.

Our mission is to save as many dogs and cats from being euthanized at the City of Dallas shelter as possible.

Company Overview
Paws In The City is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization committed to ending the abuse, neglect and overpopulation of Dallas area dogs and cats. Our goal is that every adoptable dog and cat get a loving home. By providing money for spay/neuter and increasing the adoption rate, we take the first step in making Dallas a no kill city.
Paws In The City has spent many years rescuing and healing the abused, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats of our community. We have placed dogs and cats into our foster homes and then into adoptive homes. We also conduct offsite adoptions for the City of Dallas municipal animal shelter because they kill almost 30,000 animals..add the metroplex and it climbs to 200,000. Every dollar raised goes to foster, adoption, medical and spay/neuter programs.
