Give a Wag! Gives to Dallas Downtown Shelters

Operation Kindness is the largest no-kill shelter in North Texas and was founded in 1976. Since then, they have saved the lives of over 90,000 dogs and cats! Over 45 municipal shelters and rescue groups work with Operation Kindness, as OK does not turn any animal away, regardless of medical issues and costs. When other shelters have no space or can't pay for vet care, they call Operation Kindness.  

It is a matter of great pride that they have the ability to rehabilitate any dog in their care, and that leads to new opportunities to experience life in a whole new, exciting way! As North Texas struggles to tackle the issue of their homeless pet population, Operation Kindness is a beacon of light in a very dark world. But they don’t do it all alone! 

Events and adoptions throughout the year keep the community involved in caring for the homeless animals in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. One of the most popular programs is called “Kindness for Kids Humane Education.” Operation Kindness takes the program to schools and recreation centers where volunteers who are also teachers use friendly shelter dogs to teach amazing lessons. Math, history, science, creative problem solving and the environment are all subjects that relate to the dog’s backstory. The lessons also teach children how to care for pets at home. But even more importantly, the kids develop deeper compassion and empathy for both animals and people. Operation Kindness also holds summer Kamp Kindness sessions, where children interact with shelter dogs to learn valuable lessons in kindness.

More than 11,000 square feet of indoor play area means that Fido will be happy even when the weather doesn't cooperate. To give your dog a fun day out, check out Downtown Dog Dallas!

    #5 The Watering Bowl at The Pooch Patio


    On Fairmount Street in Dallas sits a wonderful place to visit with Fido. The Pooch Patio offers grooming and boarding for your furbaby, but it's so much more than a grooming salon! The Watering Bowl at The Pooch Patio isn't just a place to give Fido a drink—it's also a coffee house that serves beer and wine to Fido's humans. Domestic and imported beers are well represented as are glasses or bottles of wine. You can order their signature Mutt-mosa or a large selection of non-alcoholic beverages.
