Bailey has a great personality. She loves everyone she meets, doesn’t mind other dogs, and never turns away treats. Bailey was surrendered because her previous owners didn’t have the time to care for their puppy. She can’t wait to go home to meet her new family. She is a 10-month-old Schnauzer/Poodle mix that weighs 14 pounds fully grown.


Bailey and other great dogs and cats are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, at 3201 Earhart Drive, one street south of Keller Springs and two blocks west of Midway Road, in Carrollton. The no-kill shelter is open six days a week: Monday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; closed Tuesday; Wednesday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday, noon to 8 p.m.; Friday, noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The cost is $110 for cats, $135 for kittens, $150 for dogs over 1 year, and $175 for puppies. The adoption cost includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs, leukemia and FIV test for cats, and more. Those who adopt two pets at the same time receive a $20 discount.
