Dallas Animal Services hopes to keep more pets in homes through affiliation with new HASS coalition

Dallas Animal Services is expanding its role, going from just placing animals in homes to becoming a comprehensive, social service-inspired agency. New programs being implemented will help keep pets with their families, get lost pets home more quickly and assist pet owners who are struggling to meet their pets’ needs.

To accomplish this, DAS joined Human Animal Support Services, a national coalition of 13 other animal shelters around the country. HASS is a pilot program to implement this new animal welfare organizational model working to keep pets and their people together, and more animal services agencies are lining up to join.
