Resources & Links

At Southridge Animal Hospital we truly appreciate the work that animal rescue organizations do, and we work with a number of rescue groups in our area to promote responsible pet ownership and the benefits of adoption. We understand that networking is a very important part of rescue, and we invite you to check out the websites and Facebook pages of some of the great organizations we support!

Cat Matchers

Cat Matchers is an all-volunteer 501c3 organization dedicated to reducing the number of homeless animals.

Cat Matchers is made up of volunteers that take homeless animals from differing situations, provide appropriate vet care, and prepare them for adoption into a loving, lifelong home. They also try to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

Cat Matchers strives to place the right cat (and sometimes dogs) into the right home. Cats have different temperaments and personalities just as dogs do; they also have different activity levels depending on their age and breed.

The cats and dogs that Cat Matchers places for adoption, have been in a home setting with foster volunteers. Not only does this give the animal(s) a chance to live in a healthier environment than a shelter or an outdoor living situation, but also this gives the foster volunteers an opportunity to learn about the animal’s temperament and personality. This is how their volunteer “matchmakers” are able to guide prospective adopters to the right pet.

Although not infallible, this approach helps maximize the desired outcome of the animal being a lifelong part of the family.

Cat Matchers can be contacted through their website at the above link, or at 972-458-PURR (7877) or catmatchers@yahoo.com.


DFW Rescue Me

DFW Rescue Me is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose goal is to reduce the number of animals euthanized in Dallas and the surrounding North Texas area.

Each year 5-7 million animals enter shelters nationwide. 3-4 million of those are euthanized, simply because no one wants them.

Together we can make a difference and save lives. You can get involved by donating, fostering, volunteering and most importantly, adopting your next pet!


TX German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

Texas GSP Rescue began in November of 2000 with the work of Diane Hagler out of Denton, Texas. As Diane began building resources, the German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue of North Texas incorporated and was recognized as a 501(c)(3) in April of 2003. Since that time the Rescue has continued to grow with adopters, volunteers and supporters.

Texas GSP Rescue is not a shelter and they have no kennel facility. Any dog taken into their program lives in a foster home until it is placed in a permanent adoptive home. As space permits, they cover the entire state of Texas and are the only GSP Rescue currently working in Texas. (They also do their best to cover intake in Oklahoma and Louisiana, as space permits, because there is no GSP rescue in either state.)
