August 2018 Dog Friendly Events in DFW Area
August truly ushers in the dog days of summer, where local animal shelters are full to capacity. That’s why, Chow & Tabby is partnering with the North Richland Hills Animal Shelter to promote their Clear The Shelters initiative. On Saturday August 18, 2018, many shelters across the Dallas Fort-Worth area will participate in free or low-cost pet adoptions. Chow & Tabby will be at the North Richland Hills facility from 10-5PM, and will be giving away a free dog treat sample for the first 100 pet adoptions on that date, while supplies last. Here are the event details:

If you’re looking to cool off from the summer heat, Garland Pawsabilities will be hosting their 13th Annual Dog-A-Poolooza event at the Holford Community Pool. All friendly dogs and their owners are welcome to come beat the heat and have a splashing good time. There are wading pools, a fenced in area, and tons of balls for your dog’s enjoyment. Admission to the pool area is $5 per dog and $1 per human, cash only. Proceeds will benefit Garland Pawsibilities and their ongoing programs, including running the Garland Pet Adoption Center and helping the Garland shelter animals.
