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.

It’s a brand new year, which means a fresh opportunity to commit to helping animals in your community. Half the battle is showing up – which you can’t do if you don’t know where to go! There are several different ways to support animals, and many different events that are great opportunities for you to get involved in making north Texas a better place for pets and their people.

The “LINK” refers to a dynamic connection between animal abuse and the cycle of family and societal violence. There is a proven connection between violence against people and violence against animals. The North Texas LINK Coalition aims to build partnerships across nonprofit groups, law enforcement and government agencies in order to promote policies and procedures that take the LINK into account when providing lifesaving support to victims of violence and abuse.
If you belong to any group that supports people or pets in north Texas, we encourage you to join the North Texas LINK Coalition.
One barrier to people having their pets spayed or neutered is cost. Thankfully, there are plenty of opportunities for north Texas residents to get their pet fixed at a reduced price or even for FREE!
