A new adoption center for Operation Kindness

Starting in February of 2023, Operation Kindness will operate the dog & cat adoption center inside the PetSmart North Dallas store located at 16821 Coit Road in Dallas.

PetSmart and Operation Kindness began partnering on adoptions in 2022 with adoptable cats available at the Coit Road location, as well as PetSmart Addison. We’re thrilled to expand this partnership to help find homes for even more animals. 

The new center will utilize an existing space within the store that recently underwent some necessary repairs, provided by PetSmart Charities. It offers 15 kennels for adoptable dogs and 10 additional kennels for adoptable cats.  

Pets at the Everyday Adoption Center will be provided by our shelter in Carrollton, allowing us to place more homeless dogs and cats with new families that will love them.  

We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with PetSmart Charities to help even more animals find loving homes,” said Ed Jamison, CEO of Operation Kindness. “Our goal is to have 2,000 adoptions take place within our first year at the North Dallas store. 

Volunteer opportunities at the PetSmart Adoption Center

Volunteers will be needed every day to assist with feeding, walking, providing a clean space for and caring for the pets at the new center.

Volunteer opportunities open on the first of every month and you can sign up here

The Everyday Adoption Center is set to officially open on February 1, 2023 with pets available to adopt on the same day. Pets will be available for adoption seven days a week — Monday – Saturday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
