Pets belong at home with the people who love them, not in shelters because times are hard.
But with times tougher than ever, more and more people are struggling, and shelters and rescues across the country and in the Dallas Fort Worth area are feeling the impact. At just one shelter in the DFW metropolitan area, pet intakes increased by nearly 10%, last year, compared to 2021.
The situation for pet families in our area is URGENT! When families have trouble accessing resources and feel like there are no options, they are more likely to make desperate decisions and pets can end up being surrendered, even when they are so loved.
Last year, a collective of area organizations came together to help provide solutions and this year we are PROUD to join them!
Four events in the Dallas Fort Worth area, over the course of 2023, will provide free food and veterinary services to pet families in need, helping them stay together and keeping loved pets out of our already crowded shelters. At the first event of the year, held March 18th in Dallas, more than 2,000 families registered ahead of time - a significant increase in need compared to these events in 2022. Not all of them attended but many, many did and overall more than 1,400 pets were seen that day. It's a huge impact but the rest of those pet familes are still out there and still need our help.
The next event, just aroud the corner in June, will be held in FORT WORTH! Our goal is to make the most impact by providing the community what they need to stay together. Families shouldn't be separated when all they need is a little bit of help.
Signing up for the Full Bowls Club during check out will allow you to make an impact and support all four of our events each year. With a monthly commitment of just $15, you will provide 10 FAMILIES with the food they need to keep their pets at home with them.
