Pet Support and Resource Center - Spay Neuter Network

Pet Support and Resource Center

The award-winning partnership program between the City of Dallas, Dallas Animal Services (DAS), and Spay Neuter Network (SNN) addresses feral cat issues, provides resources to keep pets in their homes, helps pet owners rehome their pets, or routes pets directly to rescue groups for quicker adoptions.

In the future, SNN plans to share and evolve this unique program with interested animal groups all across the nation. Dallas Pets Alive! and SNN have already partnered to develop technology to streamline medical assistance and aid to keep pets in their homes or find fosters in real time so pets never enter the shelter. Details about this new program will be released soon.

Through the partnership with the City of Dallas and DAS, SNN agreed to take over ALL of the City of Dallas’ 311 calls, beginning in April 2020, from pet owners wanting to surrender their pets and loose cat calls. By addressing community/feral cat issues, providing resources to keep pets in their homes, helping pet owners rehome their pets, or routing pets directly to rescue groups for quicker adoptions, the new Call Center would bring on the next level in lifesaving in Dallas by trying to keep pets out of the city shelter as much as possible.

Spay Neuter Network has been recognized with the 2020 LIFESAVING AWARD for Collective Impact from Best Friends Animal Society, a national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. This award is for demonstrating outstanding ability to support fellow partners and working collaboratively toward a common goal. Specifically, SNN’s new Pet Support and Resource call center, which is helping to lower pet surrender levels by helping owners get the resources they need to keep their pets, helping them rehome their pets or diverting pets to appropriate rescues for faster adoptions keeping shelter intake down.
