Questions About the Foundation


What is the difference between Denton Animal Support Foundation, Inc. (DASF) and the Linda McNatt Animal Care & Adoption Center?

Denton Animal Support Foundation (DASF) is a 501(c)3 public charitable foundation formed in 2006 to support the development of the Linda McNatt Animal Care & Adoption Center with private funding. DASF does not operate the shelter, nor does the foundation control policies and procedures. Now that the new shelter is completed, DASF is focused on fundraising to support shelter facility needs, adoption programs and subsidies, medical treatment for shelter animals, public educational programs, and other animal support initiatives. The strategic goal is to ultimately save more Denton area animals through adoption and prevention of abandonment.

Is Denton Animal Support Foundation, Inc. (DASF) the same as, or affiliated with, the Denton Humane Society?

There is no affiliation between DASF and DHS except for the common goal of saving animals.

What are DASF 'programs?'

DASF raises private and grant money to supply adoption subsidy funds, emergency medical funds, support for feral cal colonies, and general shelter needs. DASF raised over $2.0 million to help build the new Linda McNatt Animal Care & Adoption Center soon to replace the 33-year old shelter. DASF continues to raise money for the on-site vet clinic, animal habitats, shelter programs, public education, etc.
