Dogs Matter

Share about your mission and how your organization is making a difference in Dallas.

Alcoholics and addicts seeking in-patient treatment facilities have had limited options regarding the care of their pets. In many cases either they place them in an unhealthy environment or surrender them to a shelter. Dogs Matter offers a different choice. We are the only nonprofit agency to provide temporary foster care placement and supportive services specifically for dogs of addicts and alcoholics in recovery. We will take care of your best friend while you take care of yourself.


How is your cause celebrating North Texas Giving Day?

North Texas Giving Day is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. We are actively promoting on our website, Facebook, Instagram, and email newsletters to our donor base. We have also been selected by NTXGD to work with an assigned student from UT Dallas to support us with additional marketing efforts leading up to the event day.

Have you participated in North Texas Giving Day in past years? What was your experience?

Yes, last year. We had a good experience and raised a nice amount of money that we hadn't planned on for the year.

Other than a donation, how can individuals and groups support your cause?

We are desperately looking for additional foster families! And we are accepting foster families all year round. Please fill out the Fostering Application on our website.
