"We adopted Baxter over a month ago and he is doing so well!

"He is such a part of our family and enjoys leisurely days basking in the sun coming through the windows and laying on top of the kitchen cabinets. He is such a fun and vocal cat!

"We are so thankful to have him in our life and enjoyed our trip to the Irving Animal Shelter and were so impressed with everyone there. What a wonderful facility!

"Thanks again for all that you do to help these animals!"

The animal welfare community is vibrant and passionate about saving the lives of countless homeless pets. These persons and organizations, located throughout our city and nation, provide foster homes, transport animals, promote the adoption of animals, post pictures on websites, and assist shelters in numerous other ways. Irving Animal Services works with the animal welfare community to place Irving Animal Care Campus animals into loving homes. While Irving Animal Services is appreciative of the efforts of the individuals and organizations that comprise the animal welfare community, the City of Irving neither controls them nor is responsible for the content on their websites.
