In response to finding an overwhelming amount of homeless and abandoned dogs wandering around their White Rock Lake neighborhood, Flag Pole Hill residents Clay and Lillia Hollis launched White Rock Dog Rescue to help promote animals available for adoption, provide access to low cost vetting, and offer training and fostering resources. Call 214.507.4016 or email for more information.

Debbie Bryant is a pet photographer for thank Dog. Photography. In addition to shooting photos for her clients, Debbie also donates her time to help photograph and promote adoptable pets in the Lakewood area so they can find a home as fast as possible. Call 214.288.3297 or email Debbie Bryant at for more information.

DFW Rescue Me coordinates with potential adopters to arrange a home visit where volunteers share helpful information on responsible pet ownership. Volunteers will also assist with introductions to current four-legged family members to ensure that adopting a new pet will be a good fit for everyone. DFW Rescue Me is a 501(c)3 all volunteer non-profit organization. Their $200 tax-deductible adoption fee covers medical expenses. Find out more on the DFW Rescue Me Facebook page or contact Carol Brewer at

Animal Allies of Texas is a non-profit animal advocacy/rescue group that is dedicated to improving community life for animals and people alike. Animal Allies provides medical treatment to rescue dogs by partnering with veterinarians, including local veterinarians at Metro Paws Animal Hospital. Several Lakewood residents also volunteer to provide foster homes for rescued animals until they are adopted. Early in 2013 Animal Allies opened up a storefront in the Casa Linda Plaza for adoption events and low cost veterinary services. Email or call 972.967.2266 for more information.
