Adoption is one of the most compassionate and loving things you can do for an animal. By providing a loving, caring, “forever” home, your pet will provide you unconditional love for the rest of its life.

DAS always has a great selection of dogs and cats for adoption. At any given time, we have as many as 150 dogs and 50 cats available in our Adoption areas, and hundreds more available for pre-adoption. They come in all sizes, shapes, and ages so you’re sure to find “the perfect one.”

Adoption Fees:

Our adoption fees are the best “deal” in the area, too:

  • $85 for any dog/puppy
  • $55 for any cat/kitten

Adoption fees include:

  • Spay/neuter (sterilization)
  • Microchip
  • Current vaccinations

Unless otherwise indicated at the time of adoption, all animals have been thoroughly checked for health and temperament, have great personalities, and are ready for a loving home.

Adoption Fee Discounts

Dallas Animal Services celebrates our seniors by offering reduced adoption fees on animals over 6 and for citizens that are over age 65 and considering adding a new best friend.

  • $43 for dogs over 6 years
  • $27 for cats over 6 years

These affordable rates will also apply when you adopt more than one pet at your
visit to Dallas Animal Services.

We always have a selection of pets that have been in our adoption program more than two weeks, and adoption fees on those pets are waived.
