As we welcome the new year, we’re taking a moment to reflect on 2022 and all the amazing things that our supporters made possible for the animals.
2022 marked several major accomplishments including 4,521 adoptions, opening our new 24-hour neonatal kitten nursery, launching our new community initiatives team to provide affordable and accessible veterinary services and so much more.
We have learned that the needs of pets are varied and include not only homeless animals, but also community pets whose owners face a vast array of struggles, especially amid high inflation and soaring cost of living.
The future is bright
Heading into 2023, our focus is on helping the pets and people that need us most.
> Support for homeless pets
As we connect homeless pets with loving families, we’re looking forward to an expanded partnership with PetSmart Charities to increase pet adoptions in North Texas.
We are operating the Cat Adoption Centers at PetSmart North Dallas on Coit Road and PetSmart Addison on Belt Line Road. We plan to add an additional adoption center in 2023.
> Supporting pets and families
With your support, Operation Kindness will continue to ensure vaccinations, microchips, spay and neuter services and more are available, especially where veterinary care is scarce or unaffordable.
Since launching in July of 2022, the work of our Community Initiatives team has been impressive. Demand for their assistance across the state is growing rapidly, with requests coming in each week from shelter partners and community members. We’ll support this team with additional resources and staffing to help more pets and increase shelter lifesaving.
We’ll be sharing more updates with you throughout the year. Thank you for partnering with us to give animals across Texas the opportunity to thrive.
