Operation Kindness does it again! For the second year in row, Operation Kindness has reached a record breaking number, adopting 3,704 animals. After the holiday giving season passes by, it’s easy to get caught up in life and forget about helping others. Sometimes those ‘others’ are animals. With the help of many Dallas residents, countless animals have been given a home. This year marks the highest adoption record in the shelter’s 37-year history with 540 more animals given homes, breaking 2012’s numbers (which was also a record).
The influx in animals adopted is due partly to several factors including a new partnership with the Galleria Dallas. In 2013, the popular shopping mall has hosted two adoption events and consequently given 173 animals homes. Additionally, Operation Kindness recently introduced a mobile site, making it easier to access information about the shelter and events by way of smartphones. And finally, the rise in adoption may be partly due to the increased awareness of Operation Kindness, through events, fundraisers, education programs and more. The events calendar is definitely worth checking out, as the shelter continuously hosts awesome events like the annual Bark n Beer coming up Feb. 15! Who doesn’t love dogs and delicious craft beer?
Operation Kindness is the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. Since its establishment in 1976, the shelter has saved more than 75,000 animals. The shelter takes care of homeless cats and dogs until they are adopted. Operation Kindness is a nonprofit organization and therefore does not receive government funding, but rather receives all of their income from outside donations.
Keep up the amazing work, Operation Kindness! For more information visit the Operation Kindness website.
