Please be aware that we
receive 100 times as many requests to take in a pet as we can
actually accept. The sad reality is that there are too many
homeless cats and dogs flooding the shelters everyday for all the
possible groups in DFW to handle. Every 2 minutes, another
adoptable dog or cat is euthanized in the North Texas area because
it was homeless.
At Little Orphan Angels we do not have a shelter. All of our
homeless pets are housed in volunteer foster homes while waiting
adoption. Due to the limited number of foster homes, we are only
able to accept a limited number of appropriate pets at any one time.
If you have found kittens that are still nursing, please

If think you or a family member are allergic to your cat,
Cat & Dog Behavior page for assistance with an animal that has
behavior or integration issues before putting your pet up for
adoption. You may be able to solve a simple problem and keep
your family all together.

Our Intake Criteria
All pets accepted into our Adoption Program must meet certain intake
requirements to determine if he/she is suitable for adoption.
We cannot not accept pets are elderly or chronically ill. If
the pet you wish to place falls within this description, please
reconsider. Pets do not adjust well to change, and the stress
of a foster home, combined with appearances at our adoption location
is often too much for an older pet. Chronically ill pets also suffer
these same stresses. Plus, they often do not have strong enough
immune systems to cope with an adoption center situation and their
conditions deteriorate quickly.
If you feel that the dog, puppy, cat or kitten you've rescued or are
surrendering meets this criteria, please complete our
Application. The information you provide will be the key to
matching up your unique animal with the proper adoptive family.
Please be patient and we will contact you as soon as possible.
