I might be big, old, black, a nursing mom with new-born puppies, suffering from heartworm, mange, or injury, finding myself discarded, living in abandoned homes and wandering the streets in South Dallas. Some of my friends are picked up by animal control and taken to the municipal shelter where many are euthanized. 

Once upon a time...


Hope Arrives


Stories of Hope

But one day a woman fed me and tried to pet me. I was very afraid. Humans have not been my friends in the past....


Tawana Couch, Society For Companion Animals (SFCA) Founder and President, spends a lot of her day combing the South Dallas streets for abandoned and neglected dogs. She spends hours trying to get them to trust her so she can get them to safety.

SFCA often rescues dogs from kill shelters, which have limited space. SFCA works with vets to get these dogs medically assessed and treated. They are placed in boarding during the rehabilitation period and once healthy, they are flown to shelters in parts of the U.S. that have a waiting list for dogs. Many are pre-adopted before they even arrive. 

There are many expenses involved in saving these souls: veterinary care, boarding, food, and transport. There are many ways you can help!

You can foster one of these special dogs, or be a "One Night Stand", you can help us assemble crates or be a Paws Taxi Driver - Click Here to see details.

And of course every dollar helps, so if you can spare a little, please consider donating:
