SadieSadie is a 2-year-old female spayed Chihuahua mix. She’s very gentle and loving and has been at the shelter since Sept. 5, so her adoption fee has been waived. Please visit her at Dallas Animal Services, 1818 Westmoreland Road, at the corner of I-30 and Westmoreland.

The Adoption Center is open 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 12 noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday. All adopted pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Standard adoption fees are $85 for dogs and $55 for cats.  They also offer discounts on adoption fees for pets over 6 years of age, to any senior citizen that adopts a pet, and to anyone adopting more than one pet at a time.  For more information, visit, or find us on Facebook at  Photo contributed by Judi Burnett.
