our History

Caring for animals isn't easy, but it's worth it!


Coppell Humane Society started out in 1989 as a team of two women who went to a local shelter, took a few dogs to a neighborhood store parking lot and tried to get them adopted. If they were not adopted, then the women took them back to the shelter. CHS has grown quite a bit since then!

Now, our team is a network of foster homes and volunteers that rescue both cats and dogs. These animals are usually at high risk of euthanasia at the shelter due to rampant overcrowding and just need some more time. The rescued animals live in our homes where we can monitor their health and behavior to provide individualized medical attention and/or training. They stay in our program until adopted or they pass away. We love helping those companion animals find a safe and loving furever home.

Today, our mission is to serve homeless, needy companion animals in the Dallas- Ft. Worth metroplex and surrounding communities. We accomplish this through rescue, rehabilitation, and permanent placement in suitable homes; while striving to reduce their numbers through public education. Achievement of our mission depends on honoring, valuing, and supporting the efforts and contributions of our volunteers, donors and adopters.

Special care

The pets are fully vetted and already microchipped, costing much less than paying these initial expenses yourself.


Our pets reside in foster homes, so we have a good idea what type of family they'll best fit with.

What to Expect
