Happy Tails: Lexy's Story

If you have a successful adoption or rescue story you'd like to share, we would love to hear it! Fill out and submit the online form, and it will be forwarded to shelter staff.


"We adopted Pearl (now called Lexy), on Dec. 7.  She stayed with some friends until Christmas when she was delivered by Santa to my daughter, Lindsay. Christmas morning was the most memorable ever.

"I cried as I watched the joy in my daughter's eyes and have watched the video several times since. Lindsay loves her (and so do I). She is just precious!! 

"The folks at the animal shelter were so sweet, helpful and informative. I would never pay a breeder rather than save a life and am so glad we were blessed in finding Lexy Lou. We are forever greatful and have precious pictures to treasure!"

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.
