Adoptable Pets in Texas
A Different Breed Animal Rescue was established in 2004 to help save the lives of homeless dogs and cats in the Dallas area through adoption and education on the importance of spaying and neutering. We have a diverse staff of volunteers who share one common belief. . .that all animals deserve a chance to lead a long, happy life in a safe and loving home.

Our focus is on rescuing animals from local shelters and the streets of Dallas and giving them the time that they need to find their forever family. Every year, approximately 200,000 animals are euthanized in the DFW Metroplex. . .that means that by the time you finish reading this page, another animal may have lost their chance. We believe that these unnecessary deaths can be reduced or even eliminated altogether.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

You don't have all the facts and it's pathetic that you would judge before you do! So mean with your words! How much did you donate to no kill shelters this year? How many hours did you volunteer? How much do you think it takes to care for a mother dog with 9 sick puppies? Right now the bill is at $1400 for the ones that actually survived. Here is the real story: The mother, Sapphire, and her pups were dumped at a kill shelter which euthanizes in 24-72 hours. Two rescue groups networked for her 3 weeks trying to find a foster home for her. No one stepped up and the rescue had no room. Every facility they had was full. In the time they were trying to find a foster home, the pups got sick. They got six that could be treated to the vet but one passed and one is still hospitalized. The bill is currently at $1400 and climbing and, yes, they have to pay for that. They were 2 days from a foster home but when the hate mail and calls started coming in, the shelter where she had been dumped put her down. This was the thanks they got for allowing the mother to stay in their shelter for three weeks when she would have been put down after only 3 days. They are foster based which means they need foster homes to care for the majority of our animals. Last year they save 475 dogs (including 150 adults) from euthanasia. Unfortunately, the hate that was delivered to the shelter holding Sapphire got the message. They will never again allow a dog to remain in their shelter for more than the policy allows (24-72 hours). They will never again work with them to hold off on euthanasia for fear of receiving the threating calls. Why would they? I can only ask for one thing from everyone reading this. If you are ready to send hate mail or calls, please take that energy and use it to help an animal who is about to lose their life because of the limited resources of a non-profit funded solely on donations. Take that message of hate and anger and turn it into a donation to help a non-profit that tries to save the lives of as many animals as possible. Considering the number of people who have sent hate mail, blown up their Facebook page, and called to threaten them, there is a lot of passion out there to save discarded animals. That passion could amount to thousands of dollars and the ability to save hundreds of animals slated for death in kill shelters. Find a no kill shelter in your area and donate or volunteer all that passion you have for saving animals!

You have made a great point. We hope that others will read your comment and think differently on how they can help, rather than just complaining. Thank you for sharing and doing all you can. Nearly all of our animals are rescued.

The response supposedly telling the "truth" about what happened to Sapphire and her pets makes absolutely no sense. A Different Breed's own website states that they started as foster based but grew so much, they purchased a 12 acre tract of land where most of their animals are now housed. Then why the problem in finding a foster home for Sapphire and her babies?

Question do you live in or near east or central Texas? If you do where were you when this mom and puppies needed rescue? I have asked many question and have came to the conclusion that is basically a witch hunt and at least they stepped up to try and help some desperately ill puppies. From everything I can find, until this story broke there was nothing but glowing reviews, now the rescues and others should be asking. WHERE WAS I, WHI DIDN'T I STEP IN THE 3 WEEKS THAT THE SHELTER BEGGED FOR HELP, I'D SAY THAT THEY ARE NO KIND OF A RESCUE!

The people who work with this rescue, love rescuing, they don't make a profit,They have worked very hard save as many dogs as they can. Some of the puppies have had parvo, and they spent thousands on medical treatment. Adopted a pup from them, it got sick, they help pay vet bills. I will adopt from them again. The rumors soon as spreading is a complete lie, if you want to know what is happening or learn the truth, call the rescue. Since when id Facebook a reliable source

I agree. These are hard working people who had to make a painful decision after spending weeks trying to find a foster home for the mom. Where were all these people when Sapphire needed their help?

Before anyone else posts their uninformed ramblings about this shelter, ask your self a few questions: 1) Have you been to the rescue? 2) Have you ever helped financially or physically at any rescue? 3) Are you naive enough that you believe everything you read? 4) Have you called or emailed the rescue or verified in anyway that the story is accurate? 4) Are you prepared to kill many more animals because you have taken funds away from a no kill shelter? If you answered no to any of these questions, you should not post because you do not have the facts or the right to comment. Only those who have worked or supported a no kill shelter can judge how it works. If you post anyway, the blood of countless innocent animals in on your hands.

Adopting from this rescue, has been a great experience, the people are kind thoughtful and love these dogs. This rescue used to have nothing but good things said about them and most of the people they adopted from love them. I called and asked what happened instead of judging and found a big difference in what actually happened, But most of these comments are made by people to ignorant to ask or think for themselves, After all do you totally believe everything posted on Facebook? Of course not, some rescues out there get a lot of flack, so why is it that ADB only had positive reviews until now, Before you judge someone call ask questions, check with different shelter they rescue from, you might learn something

After taking the PUPPIES from Saphire, they left her to die!!! And SAPHIRE did die. Be aware many people posted their disgust and vowed that SAPHIRE would not have die in vain. Many of us were blocked!!! That was on and prior to February 8...remarably we noticed several positive reviews on February 8...These people are nothing more than PUPPY FLIPPERS!! Be aware

While I don't know the details of why you were blocked, I wouldn't be surprised if it had anything to do with the death threats and other hate that was coming into the office. I would block you too! If you care, start your own rescue and save every animal that you can. If you can't do that, volunteer. But, be prepared to give every cent you have and every moment in your life. You will soon learn that there isn't enough money or enough time to save them all.

Do not affiliate with this group! They are complete pieces of s***. Who dresses up like a non-profit, pools puppies to quote save them on quote, then kills the mom of the puppies are still nursing from, the next day? All the director and this Group care about is money and profits. If you have any additional information please report them and make sure that this group never sees the light of day. And don't be fooled by all their ridiculous five star reviews they're all posted on the same day. It was only after the story broke that they killed the mother of all the puppies they took for profit, that they went and reviewed their own rescue. Even though, God knows that there no rescue group, they are a group of murderers.

First, your credibility when down the drain when you decide to use the language you chose (the profanity if you didn't quite understand that). You seem to have a lot of information about these people. However, I'm guessing you actually don't know them. You write like a 5 year-old. You need to go back to English class. Oh, your offended at how someone you don't even know can judge you? How's it feel? The poor animals that sit in kill shelters are the only ones you are hurting with your dribble. So you are the murderer. You and everyone else who has decided the facts based on one Facebook post. Come back when you can complete a sentence with proper English and after you have proof of what you are accusing these people of. Oh, and I fully expect you to donate your time and money for any rescue you consider to be worthy. Or are you just full of Sh** yourself?

Puppy flipping is what this business is about. Do not mistake this place for a rescue, it is not a rescue. When you rescue you take the entire family, mother and pups. This place left the mother to die and a nursing mother too and now she is dead. RIP Sapphire, these heartless people may not care but we do.

Take that message of hate and anger and turn it into a donation to help a non-profit that tries to save the lives of as many animals as possible. Considering the number of people who have sent hate mail, blown up their Facebook page, and called to threaten them, there is a lot of passion out there to save discarded animals. That passion could amount to thousands of dollars and the ability to save hundreds of animals slated for death in kill shelters. Find a no kill shelter in your area and donate or volunteer all that passion you have for saving animals!

This "rescue" took a litter of puppies and left the mother dog behind to be KILLED! A REAL rescue takes all of the puppies AND the MOTHER DOG! About damn time these "rescues" who do this,are being called out!

Oh? Do you have a REAL rescue? You must have unlimited funds so that you can save every animal that is put in a kill shelter! I would like to have the name of your shelter so I can send ALL the unwanted animals to you. You don't have all the facts and it's pathetic that you would judge before you do! So mean with your words! How much did you donate to no kill shelters this year? How many hours did you volunteer? How much do you think it takes to care for a mother dog with 9 sick puppies? Right now the bill is at $1400 for the ones that actually survived. Here is the real story: The mother, Sapphire, and her pups were dumped at a kill shelter which euthanizes in 24-72 hours. Two rescue groups networked for her 3 weeks trying to find a foster home for her. No one stepped up and the rescue had no room. Every facility they had was full. In the time they were trying to find a foster home, the pups got sick. They got six that could be treated to the vet but one passed and one is still hospitalized. The bill is currently at $1400 and climbing and, yes, they have to pay for that. They were 2 days from a foster home but when the hate mail and calls started coming in, the shelter where she had been dumped put her down. This was the thanks they got for allowing the mother to stay in their shelter for three weeks when she would have been put down after only 3 days. They are foster based which means they need foster homes to care for the majority of our animals. Last year they save 475 dogs (including 150 adults) from euthanasia. Unfortunately, the hate that was delivered to the shelter holding Sapphire got the message. They will never again allow a dog to remain in their shelter for more than the policy allows (24-72 hours). They will never again work with them to hold off on euthanasia for fear of receiving the threating calls. Why would they? I can only ask for one thing from everyone reading this.

NO REPUTABLE RESCUE TAKES PUPS AND LEAVES MOMMA BEHIND. THIS RESCUE IS SUBSTANDARD TO SAY THE LEAST.

Spread venom, but the truth is the shelter involved in east Texas tried for 3 weeks to find help for this family, Not one rescue or foster was found. They were ask at the last moment to try and save the babies. Scoff if you must, but these babies that do survive will never be adopted out for the monies out into them. Boy, howdy I call that a profit how about you

".... that all animals deserve a chance to lead a long, happy life in a safe and loving home." If that were true about this rescue group, they wouldn't have sat back and allowed a mother dog to die. They knew she was sick, yet they refused to take her to a vet. They care only about profiting from her puppies. DISGUSTING!!!
