Faith, Hope and Love

Faith, Hope and Love

To keep Ms. Mixson busy, staff convinced her to become a foster mom to five baby kittens brought into the shelter without a mother and just a few days old.

Ann reports that these kittens are as strong as any she’s ever known, they took instantly to the bottle and they are currently eating her out of house and home.

Volunteers often make the difference between life and death by giving of their time, talent and love. IAS staff salutes Ann Mixson and all the volunteers here at IAS for making a difference, every day.

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.
