Operation Kindness was founded in 1976 and is the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. They are a nonprofit animal welfare organization that cares for homeless or unwanted cats and dogs in a no-kill environment. They never euthanize an animal to make room for another. They care for all the animals we take in until they are adopted.

They have saved more than 55,000 animals since their inception. They care for an average of 200-250 animals on a day-to-day basis, with another 60-80 animals in foster homes. More than 2,800 dogs and cats are adopted from Operation Kindness each year.

Black Finn Restaurant & Saloon is the destination for this event. They have invited us with open arms, complimentary appetizers and 1/2 priced drinks until 9pm for those attending our event!

Come join many at An Event for a Paws and give Operation Kindness a hand.

A $10 suggested donation will be collected at a check-in table at the restaurant. Happy Hour will be from 6-9pm.
