We are excited to celebrate our 20-year history of saving lives and honor exemplary performance of seven organizations and individuals whose dedication and commitment to solutions and achieving success creates a significant lifesaving impact.”

This innovative system will help DAS and other organizations across the country to make more adoptions possible in a quick, efficient and cost-effective manner.
“DAS believes that innovation is the key to lifesaving, and we are honored to be recognized by the Petco Foundation for our imaginative solutions, such as the Dallas90 Shelter Service System,” said Ed Jamison, Director, Dallas Animal Services. “We are grateful to all of the national funders that invested in this lifesaving idea and cannot wait to see the impact it has at DAS and across the country when it rolls out next year.”
