Dog days of summer adoption event

The dog days of summer are here and now, more than ever, our four-legged friends need our help. That’s where the DFW Pup Patrol comes in. Lisa Arion, one of the founders of the DFW Pup Patrol, has scheduled an adoption event from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday inside Odyssey Pets off Preston Road near Frankford in Dallas.

“Odyssey Pets has been very helpful with their support and with allowing us to use their space to keep the dogs out of the heat,” said Arion. “One of the most important responsibilities for a pet owner is ensuring that their pets do not get overheated.”

The DFW Pup Patrol is a 501-C3 pending status organization. Their goal is to rescue as many dogs and cats as possible from kill shelters and place them in loving forever homes. In order to do that, the organization needs foster homes for the rescued dogs and cats.

I personally can vouch for the wonderful work Lisa Arion and DFW Pup Patrol are doing for our four-legged friends. In addition to our six dogs, we are fostering three puppies that Lisa rescued from kill shelters. One shepherd mix puppy, rescued from the Garland Animal Shelter (where they do still gas animals to death), has taken a liking to our group. Una Dooley is about 12 weeks old, loves to play in her kiddy pool, and enjoys playing chase with the other dogs. She would be a great addition to any family with a big backyard and the energy to run with this little spitfire.

To see many of the adorable puppies and dogs available for adoption, visit the DFW Pup Patrol web site and for more information, contact DFW Pup Patrol at . Or, stop by Odyssey Pets Sunday from 1:30 to 5 to learn more about the organization and how you can become a foster parent. It truly is one of the most rewarding experiences one can imagine.

If you have a rescue organization that needs assistance with volunteers or foster homes, contact Angel at .
