Tonie reached out to our Pet Support and Resource Center to request a surrender appointment for her dog Cyrus because she couldn’t afford the medical costs associated with his care anymore. Tonie wasn’t just behind on Cyrus’s vaccinations; she said Cyrus has been looking sickly and losing weight, but he didn’t have the money to take Cyrus to the vet. We could hear how upset Tonie was over this decision and that she didn’t really want to surrender her dog to the city shelter. So, we referred Tonie to Dallas Pets Alive who arranged for Cyrus to be seen by a vet. After numerous tests, Tonie also learned that Cyrus was not sick but just needed a change in her diet. Upon hearing this news, Tonie was elated and said, “I’m definitely going to keep her and nurse her back to health, knowing she is okay and just needed a change in diet.”

Our Pet Support and Resource Center keeps pets and their families together because the best place for a pet to be is in a home, not a shelter.

Thanks to supporters like you, our Pet Support and Resource Center can provide pet owners with resources to either keep their pets in their homes or alternatives for re-homing them without putting them at risk of euthanasia at the shelter.
