How we saved a dog (and you can too)

Learn more about fostering and adopting pets around Fort Worth.


Kirko found a home in part because of the FTWtoday and DALtoday teams.

Last week, FTWtoday met up with our DALtoday counterparts + our partner WFAA — with a little team bonding at Community Brewing in Dallas.

While there, we meet Kirko, a dog unfortunately marked for euthanasia within a few days. Our teams posted on Instagram about Kirko, and fortunately, the sweet pup found a foster family who plans to adopt him. Karma unlocked for the week, right?

If you want to help foster or adopt dogs and cats, closer to home than Community Brewing to boot, local options include:

Fill out the short-term foster form + browse available pets. PetSmart also offers adoptions every Friday-Sunday at the Montgomery Plaza location.
