Apollo Support & Rescue rescues dogs from local North Texas animal shelters or dogs trying to survive from abuse or neglect and living a hard life on the street.

Pssst, we heard through the grapevine that Denton Animal Shelter currently has 80+ cats/kittens available for adoption. PLEASE check with them if you’re looking to add a new kitty to your household!
Finally, here are some of our more unique animal rescue organizations.
They do a phenomenal job helping animals and offer adoptions as well.
The Charming Cat Café, Music City Mall, Lewisville TX – This one-of-a-kind cat adoption facility is a public, foster setting where enthusiastic visitors can enjoy a relaxing environment to enjoy the company of cats before adopting. They are open seven days a week.
The Street Dog Project was formed to reduce the homeless pet population in Dallas by focusing primarily on rescuing dogs directly from the streets of Dallas. These special dogs often arrive as strays and are in search of love in their forever home.
Humane Tomorrow was founded in 1997 by a small but committed group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue and placement of unwanted animals in Flower Mound and the surrounding areas. All their animals are fostered, since HT has no shelter. Active lists of animals looking for forever homes are maintained on their website at www.humanetomorrow.org
New Volunteer Orientations and how to become an animal foster are regularly offered by Humane Tomorrow. Check their website for the latest classes.
We hope this extensive list will give you a good start finding your forever pet!
