Oscar (formerly Beau)
"We adopted Beau from the Irving, Texas, shelter in October 2010. He was labeled 'fractious' and needed a a lot of work. He is a small black and tan long hair doxie that has stole our hearts! He is named Oscar now.
"We adopted him because a dear friend networked an album of dogs that were 'URGENT!' The main picture grabbed my eyes because it just happened to be Oscar.
"I now work as much as I can to help other dogs in need there. The shelter and volunteers are absolutely amazing people!"
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.
