North Texas is fortunate to have many nonprofit organizations that provide for the care and well-being of animals, both domestic and wild.

Lost, stray, abused and abandoned animals are rescued daily by local charities. Many of these organizations also provide low-cost spay and neuter services to help control the pet population.

The need for these services is great, as each year the City of Dallas Animal Services Department takes in more than 25,000 animals, and of those, approximately 70% are euthanized. A grant to an animal organization can support pet adoption services, spay/neuter services, veterinary care, as well as food and supplies.

In addition to domestic animals, there are also several organizations that support wild animals and conservation efforts. These organizations range from zoos and aquariums to sanctuaries for birds of prey, bears and large cats.
