$50,000 Goal

As the only no-kill shelter in our area, East Lake Pet Orphanage rehabilitates and re-homes homeless pets in need. Pets that come through our doors are sometimes in need of intensive medical care, either from abandonment or physical trauma. Our devoted team of doctors and nurses work hard to help pets to recover while we search for their forever homes, no matter how long it takes. Additionally, our team of dedicated volunteers work to socialize pets daily so they can be ready for the right family when the time comes.

Also, at the East Lake Cat Care Center, we facilitate cat and kitten adoptions in a "Cat-Only" facility that caters to everything "Feline". This allows for a quiet, peaceful environment not only for the medical and surgical care that we provide, but also for the potential adopters to come and spend time with the cats and kittens.

All adopted pets receive:

- Veterinary examinations
- Health assessments
- Nutritional assessments
- Spay / Neuter surgeries
- Microchipping
- Intestinal parasite screenings
- Dewormings
- Age appropriate vaccinations
- Heartworm testing
- Behavioral assessments
- Feline Leukemia and Feline Aids testing (For cats)

Our Needs

We have plans to build a new, multi-level Pet Orphanage so that we can help even more homeless pets. Please consider giving a gift of any amount because homeless pets need us, and we want to rescue, and help as many as we can.


Since 2001, East Lake Pet Orphanage has saved the lives of thousands of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, and other pets. East Lake Pet Orphanage has been connecting people and pets for the mutual enrichment of life by providing orphaned pets medical care, surgical care, a warm place to stay, love, attention, and by matching these rescued pets with people who provide permanent loving homes for them.

East Lake Pet Orphanage is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, no-kill shelter in East Dallas. The charity does not receive any state or city funding, and instead, relies on the support of private donors. We are volunteer driven, and none of our Board of Directors, or devoted Veterinarians, accepts a salary for the work they do to help the homeless pets who need us.
