Founded in 1976, Operation Kindness is the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. We have saved more than 55,000 animals since our inception. We care for an average of 200-250 animals on a day-to-day basis, with another 60-80 animals in foster homes. More than 2,800 dogs and cats are adopted from Operation Kindness each year.
Operation Kindness is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and receives no government funding. All of our income comes from donations from individuals and businesses, adoptions, fundraising events and the sale of pet-related merchandise.
The mission of Operation Kindness is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior.
Our vision is a world where all cats and dogs have loving, responsible, forever homes.
