Find a Friend for Life at These Pet Shelters Around Irving

If you're looking to add a furry friend to your home, head to a local shelter. They have cats and dogs of all ages and sizes looking for a home, so you can find the pet that's right for you. The shelters near our Irving apartments include:

DFW Humane Society

Rescuing animals since 1967, the DFW Humane Society is a no-kill shelter that gives neglected and unwanted pets a second chance at life. The animals enjoy a safe and loving place to stay until they find forever families. They receive any necessary medical care, and all ages and breeds are welcome. To find your new friend, stop by the shelter during open hours. Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Weimaraner Rescue of Texas

Run by volunteers, the Weimaraner Rescue of Texas has saved more than 2,600 Weimaraners since 1989. It rescues stray, abandoned, and abused animals and educates the public on responsible pet ownership. To get started, check out the dogs online. Once you find one you are interested in, hit the adoption button to begin the process.

Dallas Animal Services

Dallas Animal Services is one of the country's largest municipal animal shelters. It takes in any local pet in need, regardless of space. The team is passionate about animals and will help you find the perfect match. They'll gladly answer your questions and suggest viewing the animals online before visiting to make the adoption process easier. Dallas Animal Services is open daily and also boasts a location at PetSmart on North Coit Road.

Before bringing home your new best friend, start your day with some delicious crepes at a nearby restaurant. If you're looking to call Olympus Las Colinas home, please contact our leasing team.
