October Features Big Paws and Bigger Hearts Adoptions


Fall in love with a dog who’s one-of-a-kind during Irving Animal Services’ (IAS) Big Paws and Bigger Hearts adoption event. All Irving dogs 40 pounds and up are $20 during the month of October at the Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC), 4140 Valley View Lane.

All dogs are spay/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, a $200 value. Oftentimes larger dogs are overlooked in shelters because of the misconceptions about their size and appearance. However, bigger dogs have unique personalities that show their true loving nature. Below are reasons why you should adopt a big dog:

  • Great family dogs
  • Affectionate and friendly
  • Loyal companions
  • Good apartment dogs with the proper amount of exercise

The animal shelter hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Adoptions must be processed 30 minutes prior to closing. For more adoption information and a list of adoptable dogs visit IAS' Adoption page.

Can’t adopt? You can still help a big dog with IAS new program Doggy’s Day Out. The program gives the dogs a break from the shelter to enjoy a car ride, treats and feel the love of a new best friend. 

Individuals can schedule appointments a minimum of one hour or the whole day Tuesday through Saturday.

The program hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday. Applicants also can have a sleepover with their four-legged friend from 4 p.m. Saturday to 11 a.m. Tuesday.

To participate, individuals need to fill out an application and provide a valid driver’s license.
