Happy Tails: Stanley'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.


"Pulled from the shelter in November with his brother, Stan had a birth defect; a stump for a back right leg. Dr. Jennifer Lavender neutered him and took the leg off up to the hip to make him more mobile and less likely for future problems.

"Well, Stan now lives with his new family. He has two pups for brothers and runs, plays and is a normal happy cat. They adore him! There are some really cool folks that will adopt a special needs baby. Good for Stan!"

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.
