Operation Kindness is a pioneer in North Texas for providing assistance to animals in need of medical care, companionship, and most of all, a home. Our mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior.

In addition to pet adoptions, we provide extensive medical care for our animals, a foster program, a pet food pantry, a surrender prevention program, education to pet parents, and volunteer opportunities. We believe in going above and beyond to give every animal the care and kindness they deserve.
