Meet Sweet Oliver - found on the street of DFW - totally rehabbed and vetted. Ready for a quiet (no cat or kids) home with a place to run outside and loves other buddy dogs to play!!!
Hello, my name is Bella. I am about 14 years old. I was adopted by my mother 5 years ago. She is now 80 years old and can no longer care for me although she loves me very much. I am healthy, funny, and very sweet. 61lbs-I have my own dog house and beds, I go to the bathroom outside! I have recently been to my veterinarians, Dr. Lavender and Dr. Spillers, at Metro Paws on Ft. Worth Avenue, and I have been declared healthy for a girl my age. I have a file at Metro Paws that will be made available to my new family. Please consider taking me into your family. My mother is heartbroken that she cannot continue to take care of me, but wants me to find a home where I will be well cared for and loved.

Thanks to Dr. Deresz and the staff at Metro Paws, my sweet Shelby is here to celebrate her 7th birthday today! Back in May when she had surgery to remove a mast cell tumor, then had lots of bad luck with post-surgical complications, I wasn't sure we would see this day. But the expertise of Dr. Deresz, and patient, compassionate care of both him and the staff, not only kept my pup alive, but with minimal long-term complications. They were great with both Shelby and with me, which I appreciated as a scared, anxious, first-time dog mom. I have since had to move, but will truly never forget the amazing care Shelby received at Metro Paws. I highly recommend Dr. Deresz and Metro Paws!!
Thank you to Dr. Badamo for making me feel so much better. 💜Ozzy

For Dr. Lavender: I’m not sure how often you get to see the long-term progress of the dogs whom you have saved. My dearest friends adopted Pinto and his brother Peanut some years back after your surgical work to save his hip when he was hit by a truck. Your amazing work has allowed him to blossom into the unbelievably active pup he is today, and his parents Kerria and Jeremy will forever be thankful. Look at him go! ❤️❤️❤️

Hello, I just saw a five year post, a memory on my timeline about Olivia, the dog that survived a coffee can around her neck with your assistance. I don't think her page exists anymore and I wonder if you know how she is doing. Thanks!

When Lucia first started she was a little timid to restrain a patient and now she makes it look like she has been doing it for years. We see an amazing Vet Tech in the making!

Why has my veterinarian been so busy? Due to COVID-19, we've seen a huge uptick in the number of adoptions of pets in the past year and a half, as well as additional safety precautions implemented to keep our team members, clients, and pet patients safe.

With more people at home to interact with their pets and notice issues, our practice has been busier than ever, so that leads to an increase in wait time, especially if we're short-staffed that week.

We have not changed our commitment to provide your furry family members with the care they deserve. We simply ask for your continued patience, kindness, and understanding as we get through this difficult time together.
