If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

There’s nothing better than spending a summer evening surrounded by critters! While school’s out, it’s a perfect time to think about adopting or if you already have a pet, explore new ways to get closer to your furry friend. Here are just a few of the pawsome events happening around north Texas for animal lovers!
Join the SPCA of Texas and Operation Kindness for #WorldKissingDay, as we celebrate with puppy and kitten kisses for donations! ‘Kissing’ booths will be set up outside Biergarten on Lamar, Coal Vines on Lamar, Black Ship Little Katana and Cafe Herrera on Lamar. All animals will be available for adoption.
Parking is available for validation with purchase at any Restaurants on Lamar when you park in the garage underneath the restaurants off Lamar St. Valet not available for validation.
Ice Cream Social
July is national Ice Cream Month, and Simba’s Barkery is hosting an ice cream social to benefit DFW Pug Rescue! Enjoy peanut butter ‘pupsicles’ and doggie ale inside The Shops at Willow Bend. 10% of all proceeds go to DFW Pug Rescue.
Bring the kids and the pups for another Dog Days of Summer movie event presented by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. Pack a picnic dinner or try one of the tasty food trucks! The City of Fort Worth Animal Care will be hosting on-site mobile adoptions! The event is free and so is parking.
If you’re closer to Dallas than Fort Worth, don’t worry – you can catch a dog-friendly flick at Mutts Canine Cantina instead! You dog will be able to run around off-leash in the dog park area or sit leashed up by your side on the patio. Be sure to arrive early to grab food, drinks and a great spot!
We hope to catch you and your pup at one of these events in July!
