Learn Something New – A Letter from a Shelter Director

I know the initial headline of “a letter from a shelter director” doesn’t grab your attention.  But I hope you will give this letter another look and learn something new. Take the time to read it and recognize the heroes of animal control the same way we recognize other first responders.  And recognize the difficult public service our animal control officers provide and the human element of this service.  We ask that you read this letter and share with friends and colleagues.  DCAP takes this issue seriously and asks all of our partners to sign the Humane Discourse Pledge.

Beds for Buddies Campaign Kicks Off

Beds for Buddies FinalRevisedDallas Companion Animal Project “DCAP” today kicked off a campaign to help purchase beds for Dallas Animal Services (DAS) shelter dogs and asks for your help raise money for 100 Kuranda beds.  The dogs at the shelter would love a soft bed to sleep on while they wait for their forever homes. Studies show that dogs need at least 12-14 hours of sleep over a 24-hour period. Sleep deprivation occurs when dogs do not feel safe enough such as being in a shelter environment. Therefore, the dog may be unable to put its best paw forward when it meets potential forever families and rescue groups. Help us increase the live adoption rate at DAS by making sure the dogs there get their “beauty rest”!

Kuranda is offering DCAP a special discount if the beds are ordered directly from the Kuranda website. In turn, Kuranda will provide a tax-deductible receipt for your gift.

These beds are the gold standard for dog bedding in shelters as they not only provide off-the-floor comfort but are vet recommended to help prevent joint-related difficulties such as hip and elbow dysplasia and eliminate ugly elbow calluses. It is beneficial for arthritic, geriatric and special needs pets. These beds are the number one choice of shelters and rescues because they are sturdy, comfortable, chew proof and can be sanitized.

Donations for “Beds for Buddies” can be made via credit card at
