Just looking for a good home!

Animal Rescue

NTIF is proud to be one of the most pet friendly events in Dallas. Not only do we encourage visitors to bring their dogs to the park for a day out, but we also provide complimentary booth space to about 50 local pet adoption societies and pet supply stores.

These may be organizations specializing in specific breeds or one of the many no-kill shelters in Dallas and the surrounding area.

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives.

Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder.

Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

However, don't forget that there are many other kinds of animals that make wonderful pets. Rabbits, mice, fish all bring enjoymernt and teach responsibility to youngsters. We invite you to stop by the Pet Adoption area in the Grand Building and ask yourselves if you have room in your homes for one of the many animals available.

However, adoption is a serious matter, and involves a commitment, so think carefully and, if necessary, go home and talk it over before deciding.
