Every week hundreds of great dogs are put to death in local shelters or die on the streets. A lot of people would be amazed at the number and variety of dogs available in their neighborhood shelters; yes, every size, age, breed and temperament is available to adopt and love.

Rescue organizations like ours work hard to save as many as we possibly can, but it is a never-ending challenge with breeders, puppy mills and uneducated, uncaring owners breeding and selling unhealthy animals to the public and contributing to the over-population of dogs.

As always, we need your support to help care for our pups: routine and emergent medical care, food and supplies, heartworm prevention and treatment, training, transport, and so many other expenses depend on donations. 

And this year, we have a new, exciting opportunity and we're dreaming BIG! We have the opportunity to acquire a building, formerly home to a boarding facility called Poochville. Poochville has always boarded a few of our rescue pups, but turning it into our own facility will help turn it into an intake center, a boarding place while we search for fosters and adopters, an adoption center hosting meet-and-greets, a central distribution/supply center, a place for training our fosters and our pups!

We will need lots of help to bring this dream to reality. The building will cost more than $500,000 and operating expenses are substantial. But our state and our metroplex are in crisis with unprecedented numbers of unwanted animals, and we need to work differently to make an impact! 

Please help us by joining our efforts. And thank you in advance for your support to our North Texas Giving Day Campaign. 


Cody's Friends Rescue is a group of committed volunteers dedicated to saving dogs! Together with our supporters, Cody's Friends Rescue takes on the arduous fight for Dallas area dogs who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, injured and sick.

Our passion is saving life at a time. We work toward giving these dogs the loving, second chance they deserve. In doing so, we commit to rehabilitating them both physically and emotionally, as well as finding them loving forever homes no matter what the cost or effort required. It is a labor of love and we have been blessed in our efforts thanks to supporters like you.

Animal rescue, and our commitment to enriching each dog's life, comes with a significant financial burden. We rely solely on the community's donations to continue caring for the dogs who are currently waiting for homes. With your financial contribution on North Texas Giving Day, we can continue to make North Texas a more compassionate and kind place for dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages.

Take a look into our most common expenses and please help us by joining our efforts. Thank you in advance for your support to our North Texas Giving Day Campaign.
