Adoptable Pets in Texas
Linens for Animals began when we - Lori Birdsong, entrepreneur & animal philanthropist and world-renowned animal chiropractor Dr. Mark Bussan, D.C., C.V.C.P. - moved to Texas to purchase land and make a home for our 7 personal dogs. Forever in search of ways to benefit animals of all kinds, we discovered the need for linens and the lack of funding to acquire them.

Our only purpose is to provide comfort to animals in need. With our status as a Certified Domestic Non-Profit Texas Corporation, we have been able to obtain and donate over 2 MILLION POUNDS of linens since late 2006. We obtain a large trailer full of linens from local hospital laundry facilities on a weekly basis and redistribute these linens as they are ordered.

New facility in McKinney, TX. Opened in spring of 2010. Shelter Coordinator Dedra Shaver lives onsite. Phone: 817-210-7856
Address: 5982 FM 1827, McKinney, TX, 75071

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

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.

I rescued a purebred Dauchsand from a shelter. He had heartworms, so I took him through all the treatment. He is now heartworm free. He is 7 yrs old. I'm looking to find him a forever home. He is housebroken. He is very easy to care for. He loves to lay beside you. I am having health problems of my own and I desperately need to find him a loving home. His name is Ryder. He has been neutered and had all his shots. He is microchipped. I will not take him back to the shelter where I rescued him from. I know that many people love wiener dogs and he has a lot of love to offer. I pray that God will place it on the right person's heart to give him a wonderful home. He gets along well with other dogs, children, etc. Plz help me to find Ryder the home he deserves. Thx and God bless. My phone number is 469-520-0353. Call anytime.

We have a 3 year old male Treeing Walker Coonhound named Cooper that we've rescued several years ago in need of a home. He has beautiful markings and is good in the home and with children. He enjoys the outdoors and loves to run around the yard. We have two Golden Retrievers that Cooper has grown up with, but we are finding having three pets a bit too much to care for. If you are interesting in meeting Cooper please call 214-799-5675.
