DALLAS, Texas – Operation Kindness, the leading lifesaving animal shelter in North Texas, is dedicated to keeping animals safe. They provide animals with an opportunity to find a loving home.

As Hurricane Ida moves toward the Gulf Coast and Louisiana on Sunday, Aug. 29, the shelter is transporting at-risk, homeless animals to safety ahead of the storm. Operation Kindness is taking in pets from their partner Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter in Louisiana to assist pets during evacuations. The shelter is looking for community support to help care for these animals. They are making room through adoptions of currently available pets and providing necessities through donations.

Operation Kindness, located at 3201 Earhart Drive in Carrollton, Texas 75006, is using its lifesaving resources and calling upon the community to help support these animals during a crisis. Any families interested in adopting are encouraged to reach out. The shelter cares for hundreds of pets each day. It’s making room for these additional furry friends.

If you are interested in adopting or supporting animals in need of loving homes, you can visit OperationKindness.org/adopt to view available pets.

Operation Kindness also needs pet supplies. With the addition of new animals at the shelter, the organization is looking forward to increasing its inventory of food, toys, blankets and more. The shelter aims to provide animals with the necessities they need to feel safe and comfortable.

Supplies needed include:

Cat Toys
Dog Treats
Canned Tuna
Fancy Feast Broths
Newspaper (used in puppy kennels)

If you would like to send supplies directly to the shelter through Amazon, you can do so via Operation Kindness’ wish list.
