Who We Are

The Oak Cliff Shelter is one of two Dallas Municipal Shelters (the other is the Forney Road Shelter). Dogs and cats that are healthy and have good temperaments, and have not been reclaimed by their owners, are available for adoption, space permitting.

Hours of Operation
Monday - Friday 10:00 - 5:30
Saturday 10:00 - 4:30
Sunday (adoption only) 1:00 - 3:30

Adopting a friend

The Pet Adoption Program's goal is to bring deserving dogs and cats together with loving, responsible owners while reducing the number of animals which are needlessly destroyed each year due to unavailable homes. We hope your visit to our site will both inform and encourage you to visit one of our two shelters and give that "special" dog or cat a place in your heart and home.
