Pets For Life Dallas was conceived in 2012 and initially included Dallas Animal Services, Dallas Companion Animal Project, Spay/Neuter Network and Duck Team 6. Pets for Life Dallas events have made huge progress in the PFL target area, but there is still much to do to fulfill the mission of bringing resources to underserved communities in Dallas and helping people who love their pets. Because people and their pets matter.

The Pets For Life team from the Humane Society of the United States is partnering with Dallas Companion Animal Project to offer a comprehensive program that focuses on the core principles and strategies needed to effectively reach people and pets in Dallas and provide animal care services and information. Targeted to  serving underserved communities, the Pets For Life approach is proven to build trusted community relationships and deliver life-saving and life-changing resources.  But seats are limited so reserve your spot now at
