Since Operation Kindness‘ inception, it has saved nearly 80,000 animals. And North Texas’ largest no-kill shelter continues to break records year after year and 2014 was no different. A record-breaking 4,387 animal adoptions were reported last year. This is the highest in the shelter’s 38 years and 683 more adoptions than 2013, according to a news release.
Jim Hanophy, CEO of Operation Kindess, says the numbers continue to grow each year.
“We are thrilled to report yet another record-breaking year of animal adoptions,” Hanophy says. “For the third consecutive year adoption numbers have continued to increase by more than 10 percent. We are so appreciative of the support we receive from the community who help make this possible. It is through our dedicated volunteers, community partnerships and increased awareness through special events, corporate and community education programs that we were able to achieve such success.”
To help continue to record-breaking numbers in 2015, the animal shelter is implementing the new Foster Talent Agent Training program, which is designed to provide adoptable animals with a sort of human wingman to find their perfect match.
Animals at Operation Kindness are of all sizes, breeds, colors and ages. They are available for a small adoption fee that includes vaccinations, worming, testing, microchipping, collar and ID tag. For cats and kittens, adoption fees are $135 and $175 for dogs and puppies. Adoption fees help cover the costs of caring for the animals at Operation Kindness, such as food, medicine, tests, spay/neuter surgery, other surgeries, medical procedures, rehabilitation and recovery.
