I’ve just gone through the qualifying process with them, and I am very impressed with their thoroughness and details. They care deeply about the right fit for their dogs! And...they gave me excellent coaching! Excellent follow up! Knowledgeable, professional and compassionate!

First time adopting a dog. DFW was highly recommended by a dear friend. They were very thorough, and it was obvious that they truly cared about the animals and the adoption process reflected that. They also, represented the pet very accurately, as a matter of fact I was even pleasantly surprised how much better it was :) They accommodated on travel plans, and handed me a beautiful healthy puppy. It evidently clear that she was loved and well taken care of at DFW. I highly recommend it and I know it will be the place I will continue to adopt from in the future. The best decision I made.

I fostered for DFWPP first, then I also helped with Adoption Events, Fund Raisers, and Transporting. They are top notch and strong in their purpose. They are very wise in operating a ethical Rescue, never taking in animals they know they do not have space for or the funds for. They don't just ignore that need though, they try to help find another rescue to take the animal and offer to help with food, shelter, and medical expenses. The owner of DFWPP is very gracious and kind and has a team of people just like her! A wonderful Rescue to work with for sure! I have a dog rescued by them that I fostered and then adopted. She has been such a joy!!

I have been privileged to volunteer and adopt from this rescue group! The quality of care they give to their rescue pups is seriously the highest I have ever seen. Working tirelessly and endlessly to make sure each pup is ready medically and behaviorally to go to their forever homes and then making sure that they find their best forever home!! I highly recommend DFW Pup Patrol to anyone who is looking to foster, adopt, donate, or volunteer! Here is one of my babies adopted from DFW Pup Patrol!

We lost our darling boy just over a year ago, and decided not to get another, as we were grieving, but we noticed a decline in our other dog. We took him to the vet, and they said "he is grieving". It was time to get another pup. We saw Mac at DFW Pup Patrol Rescue, and arranged for a home visit. Mac was timid of humans, due to his awful background. His foster mum told us he takes a while to warm to people. He took INSTANTLY to our older dog. We sat back and let him settle. Within a week, he was coming to sit with us on the couch. He put the spring in our older dog's step, they play together. We did send of for a DNA test on Mac, and it came back Mini Schnauzer and Chihuahua. Our other dog, is a Mini Schnauzer.

DFW Pup Patrol have been wonderful, they try everything to make sure it is the right fit for the dog, so they have a forever home.

As you can see from the photographs, Mac is HOME.

I adopted my first dog Max from Pup Patrol, and the support they provided to me as a first-time pet owner was amazing. All the mentorship I could ask for, and lots of resources to make sure I was as good an owner as Max was an amazing dog. After I lost Max to a congenital heart defect, we needed a companion for one of our other dogs. So we went back to Pup Patrol to adopt Flynn. This time I was a far more experienced pet owner, but the resources and owner community Pup Patrol provides was — and continues to be — invaluable. I’ve never met a more selfless group of people so dedicated to saving dogs and the humans who adopt them!

I cannot say enough good things about this organization and our experience with them. We adopted our Gracie from them almost 5 years ago and we would do it again if we still lived in the area. Gracie was rescued from a shelter after being deemed "unadoptable". DFW Pup Patrol realized what a mistake that was and rescued her. The entire adoption process was thorough, professional, and honestly a delight! Both DFWPP and Gracie's foster mom were willing to answer all our questions and help us through the process. They also referred us to a wonderful trainer who helped us refine some of Gracie's manners. And lastly, amazingly enough, I recently had a question about Gracie's history and DFWPP not only remembered all of us, but was able to tell us every detail about her and all of her history. They care so much about their pups and finding them their forever homes. I couldn't recommend or trust them more than I do!!

Through DFW Pup Patrol, we were fortunate enough to find our perfect little dog, Lola! This organization truly cares about finding the right family for each animal, as evidenced by their thorough interview process and home visit. When the foster parents, Don and Charlotte, brought Lola for a visit, that was all it took; we fell in love with her! Charlotte was wonderful in sharing what her eating/sleeping habits were and even brought her favorite blanket and toy on the day we got her! I would recommend dfwpp over any other rescue agency!

We hope to adopt from them and the particular pup we are interested in shows me how caring and dedicated this group is. Reading the story of this pup showed me miracles and endurance are what saved her life. As I read her story, I began to read other stories about the fosters and the care they gave to each pup. I was heart stuck at the kindness shown. God Bless this group.

I adopted the most special and sweet little fur baby Bones. He was found abandoned with his sister hungry. DFW Pup Patrol uses their personal money when they are shy of donations to rescue these animals and care for them. Their interviewing process is thorough and they truly care about finding the right family for these animals!

Lisa reached out to me and asked me to foster a dog for a couple of weeks. After the first night she became one of my children and I was not able to let her go. We did all the required paperwork and I adopted her as my own. She quickly became a family member and she has settled in completely.

We got our amazing Bentley from DFW Pup Patrol. They were so attentive and caring grouch the process. Since then, our kids have become fosters for the group and I always recommend them when someone is looking for a new pup. Lisa and her group make sure the dogs are ready for adoption before sending them to their new furever home. This step is so important to ensure they are not uprooted or unwanted ever again. Thank you DFW Pup Patrol for all you do for Dallas area pups.

I absolutely love this group. Our second step pup was a foster fail because my daughter and her fell in love with each other. This group really cares about their dogs and goes above and beyond to make sure the dogs grind their perfect family. I recommend this as a group to foster for and adopt from.

We have adopted several pups from this Rescue and I can't say enough good things about them. Our lives just wouldn't be the same without our Maggie, Munchkin, Tucker, Mouser and our little Elf. DFWPP cares so much about each dog that comes to the Rescue and gets them healthy and happy before they look for their forever home. I appreciate that level of caring!

I adopted my dog from DFW pup patrol. His foster mom did an awesome job traing him and loving him. He is the sweetest and was already housebroken, crate trained, and knew a few tricks when he moved in with us. I follow this agency on Facebook as well, they truly care about all of the animals they work with. I would definitely adopt from them again.

Se have needed to move 9 times in the last decade and had a tough time finding rental homes that would accept large dogs.... even my sweet puppies! So when we're bought a house last year we decided we'd like to join a big dog rescue group. We found DFW Pup patrol (which accepts all sizes and ages) and became the very happy fosters for Elwood. We kinda feel in love with him and now he's ours for life! Karen J.

I fostered for DFW Pup Patrol on and off for several years, I have since had to take a step back from any type of fostering. My feelings about this group and most specifically Lisa Arion remain the same. The kindness and compassion that are exhibited by this group is endless. DFW Pup Patrol never splits up a mom and puppies, if Lisa agrees to help she will do whatever it takes. While I have never formally adopted a dog from DFW Pup Patrol many in my family have. My story is about a dog in a shelter I wanted to adopt, I was at work and unable to get there. Lisa drove from Wylie to Plano to adopt this dog for me. She made no adoption fee, but she still did it because with her and her rescue it’s about saving the dog first. Period. Everything else is secondary as it should be. I’ve included a picture of the best Valentines Day gift I’ve ever received.

I have been a foster mom for DFW Pup Patrol Rescue for several years. They care so much for the dogs and will do anything it takes to get them healthy and keep them that way. All the dogs are very well vetted and cared for while waiting for their new adoptive homes. If a bit of training is needed, they are given that too.
Great Rescue group!

I started a job in the country- so a stray pup came to our work. I took her home and she was so sweet. My husband wanted me to take her to the animal shelter but I couldn’t. I asked DFW pup Patrol to help me get her adopted. Lisa agreed then we took her to be spade- she was pregnant with at least 7 babies. I almost had a meltdown but Lisa and DFW stood by me and the pups until the last one was adopted. I couldn’t have made it without them. I still have Mama pup but they are still helping us. Just a great group of people.

As a foster volunteer, I can say firsthand this is an incredible rescue group. Lisa is the Mother Theresa of dog world. She makes sure each pup she rescues is given the best care and followed carefully to find the very, very best home. She constantly communicates with her fosters. Her pups have often been through the worst situation and Lisa is their guardian angel. It’s a fortunate abandoned or abused pup who finds its way to DFW Pup Patrol’s caring arms.

I have pulled many dogs in urgent need from our local shelters for DFW Pup Patrol over the years. I have helped at events, know their foster parents as well as the group's founder. I have pulled a large assortment of dogs who were in need of extensive medical care and those who were just out of time, due to the shelters running out of space, for this amazing rescue group. This group is remarkable! They are 100% dedicated to serving those animals fortunate enough to find themselves a part of the DFW Pup Patrol organization and extended family. This rescue organization helps dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds and mixed breeds. DFW Pup Patrol is foster based. Their trainers and foster families work tirelessly to prepare their rescued dogs for successful placement and vet promptly & thoroughly. I can't say enough about DFW Pup Patrol and their contribution to the community.

I started volunteering with DFW Pup Patrol around 6 years ago. I helped by temperament testing and transporting dogs in need from my nearby city shelters to the dog rescue's group's vet's office or meeting fosters with the shelter dogs. I cannot express what a rewarding experience it has been to see these dogs go from unloved, neglected and thrown away to cherished family members as a direct result of the efforts of DFW Pup Patrol's founder, Lisa Arion, and her many warm and friendly volunteers. I have helped at occasional garage sales and adoption events and never cease to be impressed by the level of care and professionalism that exists within this group. This is a dedicated group that honors their limits and only takes in the number of animals they can serve properly and well. They are an outstanding organization.

I started fostering for DFW Pup Patrol a year ago after moving to Wylie. All the volunteers have been so nice...it's almost like a little family. The best part is being able to be a part of helping a previously unwanted dog find his/her forever home. It's a great feeling!
