“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

Hi, I am Helen. I am home mother with my husband and 2 boys. I have dog Chewy, dachshund mix and cat Tom, Domestic Short at home. They are so sweet, I love them so much. One is calm, likes to be hugged and combed. Another one is active, full of energy, likes run and fetch. I love their different character. I like to take chewy to walk in the beautiful natural environment. Keep eye on him, ensure he is not sniffing/eating bad things. Observe his poop color and shape when I clean up, that helps me understand his health condition. Talking and sometime singing quietly to him when we see something interesting. He likes that and always look at me softly and want a pet and huge. If you like your lovely one have a same safe and joyful walking, please let me know, and I definitely love to take care them, because they deserve to.

I have moved to Texas now and would like to continue contributing to the happy dog community. I love walking your furry ones and giving them love!

Dog Boarding in University Park

As an inner, northern suburb of Dallas, University Park enjoys close proximity to some of the best dog-friendly attractions and experiences that North Texas has to offer. This prime location also means that dogs in and around the area are well served by a host of hardworking rescue groups and animal welfare organizations.

Dallas DogRRR is a perfect example. The three Rs in the name stand for rescue, rehab, and reform, which more or less sums up what this volunteer group stands for. It all starts with Dallas DogRRR’s efforts to rescue dogs straight off the streets and from high-kill shelters where they are set to be euthanized. Once dogs are rescued, they receive the veterinary care, training, rehabilitation, and foster care they need to get a second chance at life.

The group also works to reform attitudes towards our canine companions in the wider community, aiming to help as many dogs as possible stay in loving homes. As Dallas DogRRR is run entirely by volunteers, it’s always on the lookout for more donations — every cent of which goes to help animals in need.

Dallas Pets Alive! also pulls out all the stops to help dogs in and around the University Park area. This mostly volunteer-run organization has a mission to promote and provide the resources, education, and programs required to end the killing of companion animals once and for all. It does this by rescuing healthy pets at risk of euthanasia by Dallas Animal Services, and by helping owners at risk of having to surrender their pet to a shelter.

The animals it rescues are cared for in dedicated foster homes, and donations and offers of volunteer help are always welcomed with open paws!
