Operation Kindness to Break Ground on new Medical Facility Apr. 10

Carrollton’s Operation Kindness, with fundraising assistance by Brad Cecil & Associates, will kick off phase one of a three-phase $12 million capital campaign with a groundbreaking ceremony to begin construction on their new 9,200-square-foot medical and office wing. The event will take place on Tuesday, Apr. 10 at 10:00 am at Operation Kindness’s location at 3201 Earhart Drive in Carrollton.

Through a $6 million endeavor, the new medical facility will allow Operation Kindness to create more space to provide comprehensive medical care to cats and dogs. It will also ensure that Operation Kindness can continue to provide exceptional veterinary care and rehabilitation services to the increasing number of pets taken in by the shelter. The second story will efficiently house administrative offices.

Remarks will be given by Operation Kindness Chief Executive Officer Jim Hanophy; Capital Campaign Chair and co-founder of Artists for Animals, Erin Hannigan; and co-founder of The Rees-Jones Foundation and Presenting Sponsor of Operation Kindness’ capital campaign, phase one, Jan Rees-Jones.


Founded in 1976, Operation Kindness is the original and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. Its mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior. In the 40-plus years since their inception, Operation Kindness has saved more than 100,000 animals. Annually the shelter assists more than 5,000 dogs and cats, caring for an average of 300 animals daily with another 100-150 animals in foster homes.
