"I just wanted to tell you about a dog that I adopted from the Irving Shelter in 2006. He is a red heeler named Bentley, and he is now an active flyball dog, with titles to his credit!

"Bentley is an awesome dog, runs in the low four-second range (very fast for a cattle dog) and is one of the most consistent and dependable dogs on our team.

"I just wanted you and the shelter staff to know about how well he’s doing, and maybe you can share this with potential adopters and let them know what shelter dogs can do! You can see his webpage here. Bentley also has a Dogster page that can be viewed here."

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.
