What Is Your Passion or Your Story:
I met Laura because she talked with several of my own dogs, which are all rescues, and then I started having her listen to dogs that didn’t have homes yet. When you have dogs that have made it out of a shelter only to be abandoned yet again by rescues or adopters, they have to board to stay safe and this isn’t just expensive, it is very difficult and confusing for the dog, too.
Helping dogs any way I can is what drives me, and I appreciate that Laura’s abilities have made such a positive impact.

What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You
Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation is a non-profit created to help as many dogs as possible reach the safety of loving and responsible homes. We are not a rescue that takes in dogs ourselves, though most of us have fosters in our homes that were abandoned by adopters or rescues. Instead, we use the power of a large social network to get the dogs the exposure they need and then tirelessly assist rescues and adopters with funding, medical care, transport and whatever else we possibly can supply or do to help save these precious lives.
Instead of just telling people they should adopt their next pet and take proper care of them, we focus on the practical actions that help make these things happen. It is our goal to make our shelter, Irving Animal Services, the first genuinely “no-kill” municipal shelter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. If we can do it we hope to be a model for other shelters to follow. Others are already using our format to network and fund their shelter pets, so we believe it is just a matter of time and persistence before it becomes a wonderful reality. We know no matter how hard we may try, it’s a community effort.
Name of Animal Trooper
maybe 2 years dog, male, neutered
pit-border collie mix
History or Story
Trooper came to a Dallas-area shelter with what appears to be a deliberate chemical burn along his spine and despite his winning personality Trooper was constantly overlooked by adopters and rescues alike…who knows why, maybe his breed, his size, his beautiful black fur, the fact that he didn’t look perfect. His angel Jennifer rescued him and got him healthy but he has been boarding for months now with no interest. He is very friendly and loveable and really needs his own home and people to love.
Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
How did you become a stray? What happened to your back? Why do you not like other dogs…and do you think you could live in a home with other dogs and if so, what kind/sex would make you most at ease? What kind of owner would make you happiest? Is there anything you want to tell us, anything you need or that bothers you?
Trooper has his own facebook page! It is called A Forever Home for Trooper. If you would like to inquire about Trooper, this is the best place to do it, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can make a tax-deductible contribution to Trooper’s boarding expenses through the Friends of Irving Animal Services Foundation. The PayPal address is email@example.com, or send a check to the address provided above. Or you can go to our Facebook page and look at the wonderful pets still desperately in need of a home before Christmas and choose a dog that is in need of assistance and sponsor that dog directly…or adopt!
Every single cent is used to help needy dogs; we are all volunteers and we pay the administrative overhead out of our own pockets so that the generosity of kind people can go farther to helping dogs like Trooper.
