This problem refers to the dumping of deceased animals, especially in southern Dallas. The illegal dumping of animal remains in Dallas is believed to be a result of owners improperly disposing of their pets.
Research shows loose animals are usually owned; however, they're allowed to roam free. This issue heightens the probability of animal attacks, injuries to pets and uncontrolled reproduction in the community.
Dallas Animal Services intakes an average of 80 pets per day. The high number of intakes affects available space at the shelter and restricts the amount of time animals can remain up for adoption or transfer.
There are over 8,700 loose and stray dogs in southern Dallas who will come through Dallas Animal Services by the end of 2017. The City and partners are in need of passionate fosters for these animals.
