I am a volunteer FUR-tographer for Dallas Animal Services, Dallas' city animal shelter.
The third largest in the country, the shelter takes in an average of 100 animals... a day. Yowza!! The city shelter must take in EVERY animal which comes through their doors including owner surrenders, strays, and confiscations. From there, they all have a good chance to find a loving fur-ever home!
This is my instagram feed featuring dogs and cats as I snap them "more-appealing than their intake" photos. These replacement photos are taken outside kennel doors and, if the animal stays in the shelter long enough, generally replaced with an outside playful shot!
If you fall in love with one of these bugs, contact DAS with their ID# to inquire if the animal is still available. If that one isn't - there are literally hundreds of other love bugs waiting for you. #adoptdontshop
