Dog Days

Rusty, Trixie, Geoffrey, Sugar Bear and Sweetheart need your help and a home, so through the month of October (Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month), Operation Kindness, a no-kill animal shelter, is offering a tasty adoption special. Each adopted dog 40 pounds or larger will go home with 40 pounds of free Iams dog food. The adoption cost of $135 also includes spay/neuter surgery, a microchip with lifetime registration, vaccinations and heartworm testing. Find a friend from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (the facility is open until 8 p.m. Thursdays), and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays at 3201 Earhart Drive in Carrollton. Call 972-418-PAWS or visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
