Hello, we're Tim and Sophie, a couple of folks who volunteer at the City of Irving's Animal Shelter in Irving, Texas.
We've come to realize the near-impossibility of getting to know a dog or cat from a 5-second walk-by in a noisy shelter, through a kennel door. At least, we're pretty sure we couldn't give much of a good impression in those circumstances. So we decided to create a place where you can get to know some of the wonderful animals in residence and maybe even find a new best friend.
Please keep in mind that we don't represent the Irving Animal Shelter, Animal Services, or anything of the sort. We just get to spend a bit more time with these guys than the average visitor. That said, it's highly encouraged that you visit your local shelter, wherever you may be. Some of these animals are desperate for positive human interaction, regardless of whether you can adopt them or not.
Lastly, we want to give props to all of the great folks at the City of Irving Animal Services. All of our features will be animals from the CIAS, who can be reached at:
