Foster caregivers for the animals at Irving Animal Shelter represent much more than extra time for our needy pets. Like Franklin, seen here in before and after photographs, our amazing foster families provide a real chance at life.

The staff at Irving’s Animal Care Campus salute our foster families. Your heart and soul makes the difference for little dogs like Franklin, and we applaud each of you.

Congratulations to Franklin, now living the life of a loved family member because of the helping hands of his foster caregiver, JoEllyn.

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.
