in 1976, Operation Kindness is the oldest
and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. We
have saved more than 70,000 animals since
our inception. We care for an average of
200-250 animals on a day-to-day basis, with
another 60-80 animals in foster homes. More
than 3,000 dogs and cats are assisted by
Operation Kindness each year.
is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and
receives no government funding. All of our income comes from donations from
individuals and businesses, adoptions, fundraising
events and the sale of pet-related merchandise.
The mission of Operation Kindness is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior.
Our vision is a world where all cats and
dogs have loving, responsible, forever
