A Different Breed

Dallas, Texas

Cause Description:
A Different Breed Animal Rescue (ADB) began as a foster based organization with adoptable pets being kept in temporary foster homes until they could be permanently placed. Initially, ADB acted as a channel for animals from Dallas Animal Services (DAS). But, as DAS developed other adoption outlets such as PETCO and PetSmart, ADB began to grow into an independent rescue, pulling pets from animal control facilities with high kill rates in and around Dallas or simply helping homeless animals off the streets. Today, ADB continues to grow, becoming one of the larger rescue groups in the Dallas area and servicing over 270 dogs in 2009 alone. Many of these animals found their forever homes through the ADB store front located at Beltline and Preston Roads in Dallas. Adoption events are held at the storefront every Saturday from 12:30 to 5:00. As well as placing animals in loving, permanent homes, ADB provides the food, medical care (including vaccines and spay/neuter), collars, leashes, toys, housing, transportation, and love and attention that each rescue needs and deserves until they find their own family. Over the last 6 years, ADB has expanded so much that foster homes alone are not sufficient in number to care for all the animals assisted by ADB. In addition to the foster homes, ADB is now also leasing a 12 acre property where the majority of animals are housed while waiting to find their permanent homes. ADB has recently upgraded the property with construction of a building to house dogs as they are brought into the adoption program. The building includes dog runs with dog doors and an outdoor fenced-in play area that is covered. All the work accomplished under the ADB name is supported by a diverse staff of volunteers who share one common belief… all animals deserve a chance to lead a long, happy life in a safe and loving home. These individuals tirelessly devote their personal time (and sometimes money!) at the storefront adoption events, festival adoption events, and fundraisers with the sole purpose of helping animals in need. ADB hopes to aid even more pets in 2010 by constructing a second building on the leased property to allow the rescue to house more animals, on a short-term basis, while ADB finds their perfect home. adifferentbreed.org
