The Humane Society of Dallas County has housed countless unwanted, abused, and neglected animals of Dallas for over 40 years through the generosity and unwaivering dedication of its committed staff, volunteers, and donors. A no-kill shelter, the Humane Society of Dallas County do all that it can to temporarily house rescued animals while also doing its part to promote responsible pet ownership.
Four years ago a wonderful and energetic pit bull named Evander was rescued through The Street Dog Project and found his way into the hearts of our friends here at the Humane Society of Dallas. Evander did not have an easy life before he came to the shelter and, because of some anxieties and fears, it has been more difficult to place him in the perfect forever home. He is a loving and kind dog but would do best in a home where he is the only dog and has the love and attention of an experienced pet owner.
In true generous fashion, and to commemorate Evander's 4th Anniversary with the Humane Society of Dallas, the volunteers who have come to know and adore him have decided that it's time for Evander to graduate to having a place of his own. The facilities of the Humane Society of Dallas are spotless, comfortable, and perfect for its temporary residents but, because Evander has been there for so long, we, the volunteers and friends of the shelter, wanted to give him a taste of the "good life" in the form of a comfortable cottage made just for him. With this idea "The Ohana Project - a Cottage for Evander" was born. Ohana is a Hawaiian term often used to describe one's social support system including one's nuclear family, extended family, and close friends - a term that perfectly describes the relationship between the volunteers and friends of the Humane Society of Dallas and Evander.
In addition to housing Evander, the funds raised through the "Ohana Project" will be utilized to place artificial grass throughout the dog yard so that all the dogs are able to benefit from a comfortable and clean outside environment where they rest, relax, and play! Also, on the wonderful chance that Evander finds a permanent place to call home, the cottage will then be converted into a recovery area for any of the shelter animals that require healing or rehabilitation from surgeries or treatments for all the years to come.
Your gift to "The Ohana Project - a cottage for Evander" will help bring a taste of the "good life" to a wonderful animal of the Humane Society of Dallas.
