Mission: The mission of Operation Kindness is to provide a caring, no-kill shelter for homeless or unwanted cats and dogs until they are adopted into responsible, loving families. We accomplish this by: (1) never euthanizing one animal to make room for another; (2) providing high-quality veterinary care to the animals in our shelter and in foster homes; (3) dedicating our efforts to finding caring, responsible families who will make a lifetime commitment to the animals they adopt from us and (4) educating the public about responsible pet care and the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.
Programs: Each day operation kindness cares for an average of 300 animals at its carrollton, texas, shelter with an additional 100 animals living in its foster home network. Operation kindness is a nonprofit organization that has saved close to 80,000 animals since its inception.
I became aware of Operation Kindness when a stranger dropped two puppies in the bed of my truck while I was inside shopping at my local grocery store. The pups were scared and had no home. I couldn't take them as I had a 6 month old puppy plus a senior dog. Operation Kindness helped connect us with a donor and they were indeed adopted! That was 2005. 8 years later I am now working with the group as a board member. It has been a phenomenal experience for me. Our board is a diverse group of folks who all have the animals at the very center of our efforts. We strive to be a smart, hard-working, active board and because of that I think the halo effect on the animals is a positive one. We have an outstanding group of staff and volunteers that make the group successful - Operation Kindness has helped save and adopt over 75,000 homeless animals since it's inception.
