Welcome Redmond to Duck Team 6! He came to us yesterday from the Dallas Street Dog Advocates. He is one of many dogs from the River Pack that they are trying to save. Rescues and fosters are still needed to get the rest of the dogs to safety! Redmond has been treated for a cut on his back. He's about 8 months old and has adjusted very quickly in his foster home. He's a sweet playful and goofy puppy. His foster mom is working on crate training and potty training. He'll get neutered soon and should be available for adoption in the next couple of weeks! If you're interested in Redmond, email us at email@example.com ... See MoreSee Less
TBT - Who Remembers Angel? DT6 found Angel living under a house with her 5 week old puppies December 2013. It was bitterly cold outside. We scooped up Angel and her puppies and took them to a safe warm place. Angel’s puppies went to the SPCA of Texas and Angel stayed with DT6 until she found her forever home.
Today, Angel, now known as Lucy, lives with her mom, Jan who adopted her 5 years ago, and has the good life. Her mom tells us "she's the most wonderful companion and is napping on the bed with me now.....thank you to her rescuers and fosters!" Thank you Jan, for giving Lucy her happily ever after that she deserved. We love hearing how our Duck dogs are doing with their families! ... See MoreSee Less

We received a capture request for a beautiful GSD running loose on the streets of Oak Cliff. This sweet girl had been on the streets since April, living off the I-35 service road and in a storm drain. We set up the trap, locked it open, and without hesitation she went right in! The next night we set the trap, and she was captured within 30 minutes!
Right after we caught her, we were approached by a nice man named Gerald. Gerald had been feeding this dog for several months, and he described her as an angel. We’re grateful to Gerald for taking care of her, and to the Good Samaritan that cared for her as well!
The Good Samaritan named her Harper, and she is fostering her through Dallas Pets Alive. We will have her scanned for a microchip and we will continue looking for an owner. If an owner is not found, the Good Samaritan plans to adopt her. ♥️♥️
What an amazing weekend with some amazing people! Storytelling Sunday....
We received an email from Vannesa, asking if we could help with recovering her lost foster dog, Leo. He was a recent rescue from a hoarding situation with Lone Star Aussie Rescue and jumped his temporary foster’s fence in Lantana. Between social media posts and signs, the sightings were coming in! And he was traveling through ranches, making it very difficult to track him. Our cameras and feeding stations were constantly one step behind him.
This morning, *THE* sighting came in. We had recruited Christy, our friend with Apollo Rescue who lives nearby. She headed to the sighting and saw him run to a farm. Total coincidence, her young friend and fellow Apollo volunteer, Justin, just happens to work at this farm. She called him and he hopped on a four wheeler, kept up with Leo and got him secured with a slid lead! (Another coincidence, this isn’t the first time Justin has helped us. He’s a good kid!) It was intense and thank goodness it worked because he is not a fan of crates and our chances of trapping him would have been slim.
We were not on site when he was captured. We love these lost dog recoveries that bring communities, volunteers and rescue groups together and they get the job done! We are so, so happy for Leo and he’s back with Vannesa now wearing a tracking device. 😀
Ya'll are amazing!! Glad pup is home!❤
I love a happy ending!
It takes a village..thank you heroes‼🐾🐾💞👣
Hace un par de semanas descubrí a mi vecino tratando de ir a tirar a su mascota lejos de su casa porqué simplemente ya no la querían ahí, me di cuenta de la situación y entonces fui corriendo hasta llegar a su camioneta donde la tenían lista arriba para ir a abandonarla, le pregunté que si yo podía tomar la perrita para conseguirle un hogar donde le dieran una buena vida y que le dieran amor sobretodo, él me dijo que si y me la traje para mi casa, la perrita está embarazada y yo no se que hacer porqué yo no puedo adoptarla ya que tengo muchos perros aquí, mi pregunta es, ustedes podrían ayudarla a conseguir una buena familia donde la cuiden bien? Ella es una perrita muy cariñosa y puede convivir con niños y también con otras mascotas de diferentes razas. Me gustaría saber si pueden ayudarla, gracias por todo lo que hacen por los Animalitos, yo Amo a los Animales por esa razón la rescaté antes de que fuera abandonada por estos malos vivientes. Gracias.

Duck Dog Hazel is speechless... oh wait, no she’s not. She thinks you can help us bring in the remaining $2,600 needed to reach our North Texas Giving Day goal. We think she’s right! We’ve got 40 minutes left. Let’s do this!
This past Sunday, Owen was featured in our “This is Duck Team 6” video series. Once captured, we discovered his right front leg had slipped through the collar he was wearing and had cut into his skin, resulting in a wound that was terribly infected. Besides having a nasty skin infection from the wound, Owen was severely underweight and extremely weak. He initially had to stay in isolation boarding at our vet’s office due to a terrible cough. Along with an infection and a cough, Owen had intestinal parasites, giardia and heartworms. His road to recovery has been a long one and it isn’t over yet. Yesterday, Owen had his first injection in his heartworm treatment. He will have the final injections in October. So far, Owen’s medical bills have come to over $2000. Owen’s story, and so many other dogs we assist, would have a very different ending if it weren’t for continued and generous support from you and our other donors. We appreciate all of the support! Semper Woof #DuckTeam6 #NTxGivingDay
We received a capture request for a loose dog in Justin, Texas. Word on the street was that this dog was left behind after his family moved. A group of neighbors decided to come together, and save this dog. They named him Shadow, and they called us for capture assistance. Two of our capture team volunteers went out, set up the trap (locked open) and camera. Shadow made an appearance at 9:41 pm, and went right into the trap! We went back the next night and set the trap. Guess what? At exactly 9:41 pm, Shadow showed up and he was captured!
Today is North Texas Giving Day, and it’s our biggest fundraiser of the year! We have set a goal of $35,000, and we’re more than halfway there! Please help us reach our goal! We’re grateful for your support, and so is Shadow!
One important part of the Duck Team 6 mission includes Outreach. Often, we are asked, "Why Outreach?" Kimberly Allen, a DT6 volunteer, is here to tell you "Why Outreach?" and what it means to her...."To quote Dalai Lama, "Love and Compassion are Necessities, not Luxuries. Without them, Humanity cannot Survive." I have been so fortunate to become involved with DUCK Team 6 and I have grown so much as an individual by helping with the Outreach program. We work together, learn together and help educate our community together. Start building bridges today and your world will flourish. Trust me. I truly thank everyone who has ever helped support our mission and believed in us. We are here to make a difference and with the support of our followers...we will continue to do so❤."
Last July, we were asked to help capture a boxer named Beaux. Beaux busted through the door of the family’s RV while they were gassing up in Rockwall, Texas. We set up the trap, and we were waiting in a nearby parking lot, when a police officer told us that Beaux had been hit by a car. Beaux was seen running back into the woods, and we were devastated and feared the worst. The next morning, we saw Beaux on our game camera, and he was still alive!! He had major road rash, and a mangled back leg. It took our capture team 12 days to get him, but we were successful in capturing him, and we took him to the ER vet immediately.
This is a video showing Beaux's amazing progress, and none of this would have been possible without our faithful supporters!
Today is North Texas Giving Day, and we’re halfway to meeting our goal of $35,000!!! Please consider a donation to Duck Team 6, so we can continue helping dogs that need us the most.
We were contacted by a good Samaritan about a stray dog in her neighborhood that had been running loose for several months. Our capture team was able to trap the dog within a couple of weeks. She had a great personality and was very friendly but also had a very badly mangled front leg that had never healed from a past break. DT6 took "Stevie" in and got her healthy which included amputating her leg because it could not be repaired. Stevie was in the care of one of our volunteers at her boarding facility for several months healing until she was ready for adoption. Once her post was live, we got an inquiry that led her to the best forever home she could have ever wanted.
Her new mom reports, "Stevie girl is doing great! She enjoys exploring on the walking trails and chasing bunnies. She’s made so many friends at the dog park at the apartment complex, and she even goes to doggy daycare 2 times a week to play ball with her school friends! Being a tripod, she draws attention to herself everywhere we go, and she just eats up all of it! She’s a huge bed hog, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s my best friend, and I’m so extremely thankful that Duck Team 6 brought her into my life! You guys are so awesome!"
Please donate to Duck Team 6 today, North Texas Giving Day, so we can continue to help more dogs like Stevie!
Hey Hoomans, it's me, Duck Dog Benny...I'm just hanging out today, still waiting for my forever family to find me. I'm hoping that one of our generous North Texas Giving Day supporters might be looking for a new family member, you know, a handsome fellow with sexy eyes and ball playing skills who likes to chill out and snuggle and give soft kisses when you need some love. You know you can't resist a little fellow like me, so what do you say, make your donation to Duck Team 6 for NTGD and then have your people message my people to set up a date for us to play ball and get to know one another. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I can't wait to meet you!
Our amazing volunteer Cathy McNeese has worked hard creating Junior Duck Solution Squad (JDSS). The mission of JDSS is to build a generation of animal advocates, one child at a time.
Giving children the tools and knowledge they need to grow up treating animals with compassion is critical to the mission of Duck Team 6. Your support this North Texas Giving Day helps us carry out this mission and build a bigger and better generation of animal advocates.
Duck Team 6 ***This is Duck Team 6: Junior Duck Solution Squad***
We’ve learned at Duck Team 6 that Humane Education is very important to our mission of reducing the street dog population in Dallas.
In this episode of “This is Duck Team 6”, you’ll meet our superhero volunteer, Cathy McNeese, who started Junior Duck Solution Squad, a humane pet education program for kids.
Raising a new generation of animal advocates is imperative to ending the loose dog problem, ensuring pets are properly cared for, and bringing shelters to “no-kill” status.

Thank you to all who have donated so far this North Texas Giving Day! Because of your donations, Duck Team 6 is able to get dogs basic vetting. Some of these dogs are captures that become Duck Dogs, some are dogs captured and transferred to a partner rescue, or it may be an owned dog whose family needs financial assistance with vetting.
These vetting costs range from $18 (Bordetella) to $150 (spay/neuter) depending on the treatment.
No dollar amount is too small when it comes to helping dogs in need! If you'd like to make a donation, head over to our donation page now!
Last Fall, our Capture Team was working on conditioning Coco to the trap with plans of trapping her the weekend of Nov 10th. However, on Nov 8th little Coco was attacked by a pack of large dogs. She was severely injured requiring overnight emergency care for 2 nights plus surgery for her numerous wounds. We were not sure she would survive the first night let alone be stable enough to survive surgery the following day. While her Good Samaritan had initially planned on fostering her, she was concerned whether she would be able to provide the amount of care needed for Coco to recover. Fortunately, we had an amazing, experienced foster family step up and offer to take on Coco’s care.
Coco had a dislodged rib, flail chest, punctured abdominal wall, multiple severe puncture wounds and de-gloved skin on her back end. She had to stay at the vet for a while as she recovered. After a lot of poking and prodding to help heal her wounds, she decided people were not her friends and had become very grumpy. However, that did not deter her loving foster family who were up to the challenge of a seriously wounded dog that was not a fan of people. They slowly began to gain her trust. Coco soon realized that living in a house with people and being able to cuddle on the comfy couch or bed, wasn’t such a bad thing after all!
However, Coco’s story wasn’t over yet. While recovering she developed multiple infections and had to go through heartworm treatment once her wounds were finally healed. Coco soon had other plans regarding her foster family and decided they were HER family. She didn’t plan on going anywhere! Her foster family soon couldn’t deny that Coco was meant to be their dog forever. After a long journey, Coco finally tested negative for heartworms last week. While Coco’s physical scars will always be with her, she is a perfect example of how good veterinary care mixed with a patient and loving foster family can bring out the best in a street dog!
Without donations from you, our supporters, we would never have been able to provide Coco the necessary emergency care along with the extensive follow up care required for her to survive and to become a healthy, happy and loving dog. We greatly appreciate your support today for North Texas Giving Day and every day throughout the year! Semper Woof! #DuckTeam6 #NTXGivingDay
Bless her heart 😞..so glad she had a happy ending. She deserved it. Very thankful for all you do, especially for fostering my PEPPER!!! He's such a good boy. We love him sooooo much.
Sweet Coco. Thank you for taking care of her. Sweet life now.
Shelley Kautz This is Coco.. Not adoptable but still a sweetheart!!
In 2018, I went down to a South Dallas neighborhood to volunteer with the DT6 outreach team. I had no idea how life changing it would be. I have since joined the capture team and I...
You’re tired. You’re beat down. You wonder if you’re making a difference. You wonder if it will ever end. You wonder if dogs will continue to be dumped on the streets. Can you continue to do this? Can you do this day in and day out and not want to quit? You see a dog that needs you. She’s freezing. You know that you have to help her, or she will die. You capture her. She’s grateful! She gets adopted! She’s in a loving home! You feel elated, and that’s why you push on to help the next one. The next one that needs you. The next one that loves you!
You’ve just looked through the eyes of a capture volunteer, and your donation made this possible.
Duchess' Story: Duchess came to Duck Team 6 by way of our Outreach neighborhood in South Dallas. Duchess was kept outside with another dog in the owner’s backyard. The other dog was very aggressive towards Duchess and had attacked and injured her a few times. After the second attack, we worked with the owner and provided fencing to keep Duchess safe with separate areas for each dog. Unfortunately one day the other dog got through the gate and attacked Duchess very badly. The owner contacted us and we were able to get Duchess to our vet right away, but she was not expected to live given the severity of her injuries. After a few days of a touch and go prognosis, Duchess started to get better and thrive under vet care. She became a vet staff favorite while in their care for almost 6 weeks to heal. When Duchess was ready to return home we were very concerned that she would again be put in the situation where she could be attacked. We talked to their owner about surrendering Duchess to Duck Team 6 so that we could find a better home situation for her and the owner agreed that would be the best. Fortunately, one of our volunteers fostered Duchess until we were able to find a wonderful home for her.
Fast forward to the present: Duchess is living the good life as an indoor dog with her new family. Her mom says "She is the absolute best dog I have ever had. She settled right into our home, and has been such a blessing. She is so loving and affectionate, so well behaved, and just a joy to have around. Her favorite things are playing with her best friend, Lola (an 8 lb Chihuahua), pulling the stuffing out of all her toys, and spreading out and taking up almost the whole bed. Lol. I wanted to send a picture of her and Lola, but they are rarely still when they are together, so I wasn't able to get one, but I added a few others. Thank you so much for allowing me to bring Duchess into my home. I love her so much!"
Please consider a donation to Duck Team 6 today, in honor of Duchess and other dogs like her that we have been able to help because of the wonderful support of our followers. #NTXGivingday #Duckteam6 #ThisisDuckTeam6

Remember Opal? Opal was the mastiff that got away from home and lived in a wooded area for 5 months! We joined forces with our friends at Mutts and Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue, and we caught her using a remote controlled drop net. Aside from being skinny, and having a few ticks on her, she was in good condition. We visited Opal last night, and she’s doing great!
Our capture team worked over 300 volunteer hours on this case, and a lot of expensive equipment was used. North Texas Giving Day is this Thursday, September 19th, and your donation makes it possible for us to continue our mission through capture, placement, and outreach!
Please consider donating to Duck Team 6 on North Texas Giving Day! We’re grateful for your support, and so is Opal! 🐾♥️

Several months ago, we were asked to help capture a scared dog that got away from home. The owner put up posters, and she received a call that her dog was hiding in someone’s bushes several miles away. We got there, and the dog named Nellie popped out of the bushes, and ran down the street. We set up the trap and tried for 2 hours to trap him, but Nellie was not interested. We were about to leave when our capture team volunteer asked the owner for help, and it paid off! Nellie had retreated to his safe spot, in the bushes, so the volunteer stood in the street and coached the owner through the process. The owner got on her stomach and she slowly crawled into the bushes, head first. She could get her hands on Nellies collar, but the collar came off. Drifting towards the bushes, the capture team volunteer walked over and handed the owner a slip lead. After several minutes, and still face down on her stomach, the owner got the slip lead around Nellie, and they pulled him out of the bushes! Nellie was captured!
We visited Nellie last night, and he is living his best life!

We received a capture request for a loose dog in Whitewright, Texas. This sweet girl took up residence in a nearby field, and a good samaritan fed her for several months. Our capture team volunteers went out, set up the trap, and watched her on a game camera. She went right inside the locked open trap, so we knew that she was ready to be captured. We went back and she was caught within 5 minutes of setting the trap!
The good samaritan named her Ellie, and she plans to adopt her if an owner is not found.

In this episode of “This is Duck Team 6” you’ll meet Duck Dog Owen. Owen was found in January 2019 by a Good Samaritan. He was near death and needed to get off of the streets as soon as possible or he would not have survived an incoming harsh winter freeze. Watch this episode to see how he went from a very sick pup to a sweet, loving foster baby. Owen is a prime example of how your financial support of Duck Team 6 saves dogs just like Owen. Without your donations, we wouldn’t have been able to get him the life saving emergency medical care he needed, which included several weeks in medical boarding!
Please consider making a donation to Duck Team 6 this North Texas Giving Day (9/19/19) and help us save more dogs like Owen.

"Sometimes we have to ask for help. And that's okay." - Fred Rogers We at Duck Team 6 know this all too well and that motto is at the heart of our Outreach program. It takes courage to ask for help and we believe that our non-judgmental attitude towards others is what gives people the strength they need to ask us for help whether its for medical care, food, fence repairs or behavior advice. Our Outreach Team is here to help and give back to our community any way we can.

Several months ago, we captured a sweet dog at a park in SE Dallas. Before we captured him, we posted here and asked if anyone was open to fostering Buddy. An amazing couple stepped up to foster him, and their parents fell in love with him! After looking for an owner for several weeks, and realizing that no one was looking for him, they decided to adopt him. They named him Parker and look how proud he is to be in a loving home!

We received a capture request for a loose dog in Garland, Texas. This tiny tot was living under a truck bed, behind a tire store. The neighbors said that she had been on the run for 2 years! We set up our trap and camera, and monitored her overnight. We locked the trap open, and she went right in! We went back the next night, and set the trap. BINGO! We got her!
Our friends at Rescue Row agreed to bring her into their program, and they have named her Bree. ♥️ We will continue to look for an owner, and if no owner if found, she will be up for adoption once she is medically cleared.

This is Outreach Dog Braxton, who a little over a year ago needed medical attention when he became infested with ticks!
Duck Team 6 provides medical assistance for dogs in our outreach neighborhood as well as dogs of families who reach out to us in need of vet care in times of financial hardship and emergencies.
Our goal as an organization is to keep dogs happy and healthy in their homes. We often encounter families who love their dogs but cannot afford to get much-needed medical care and feel their only option is to surrender their pet to a shelter.
Because of the generous financial support of our donors, we’re able to assist families who find themselves in situations like this through our Outreach program. Our program is giving them the ability to get the care their pets need and keep them in their home.
As we get closer to North Texas Giving Day, please consider supporting Duck Team 6 and help dogs just like Braxton. www.duckteam6.org/NTGD
This beagle had been running around Little Elm for months and had taken up residence in a construction area and no doubt was being fed by the kind workers. While the Good Samaritan was also keeping her fed and we were coming up with a capture plan, it was noticed today that the construction workers were removing a large pile of concrete pieces where she had made a den. Without the safety of her den, we decided we needed to make an attempt tonight to get her. She really didn’t want to go in the trap, but she really wanted that good food! The food won! 😄
She’s not microchipped and she’s been reported as found to the Little Elm shelter. No more running with heavy machinery for this girl! ... See MoreSee Less
Just a few months ago, we received a capture request for Sadie. Sadie broke away from her mom, while walking in the neighborhood, and she was on the run for 3 weeks. We had a heck of a time tracking her down, but her mom did everything right. She showered the neighborhood with posters, and it paid off! A nice man in a neighboring sub-division saw Sadie, and he called her mom. We set up our game camera, and she was there! The next night we set the trap, and Sadie was caught!

In this episode of “This is Duck Team 6” you’ll meet Duck Dog Hazel. Hazel initially started out as a capture case when a Good Samaritan reached out to us about her. She had been dumped near the Good Samaritan’s office building in Dallas. She was scared and injured. Things quickly turned into an emergency medical situation when Hazel laid down under a car in the parking lot and it was feared that she was dying. Watch Hazel’s transformation after getting off of the street and into a foster home!
Without your support, we can’t help dogs like Hazel in these situations where emergency medical treatment is needed. As we get closer to North Texas Giving Day, please consider supporting Duck Team 6 and help dogs just like Hazel.
What is Outreach? Outreach is an activity of providing services to any populations who might not otherwise have access to those services. A key component of outreach is that the groups providing it are not stationary, but mobile; in other words they are meeting those in need of outreach services at the locations where those in need are...this describes our Duck Team 6 Outreach program perfectly. Our volunteers are boots on the ground and go where needed whether its transporting dogs in need of medical assistance, hosting vaccination clinics, distributing food, building dog runs to get dogs off heavy chains or anything else that is needed to help our community. We couldn't do this without your support. Our Outreach team hopes we can count on you on North Texas Giving Day! Our direct donation link is www.duckteam6.org/NTGD #NorthTexasGivingDay #DuckTeam6 ...

She is thriving in their home with their other rescued street dog a chi-mix named Baxter and their new human baby brother James who is now 7 months old.
See their darling photo below -- Bixby is always watching over James!
Hard to tell from the photos but could it be a pointer instead of a heeler? Looks pointerish on my phone. Ears aren't erect like on a heeler and heelers don't usually have solid patches of color. If it has some pointer maybe Cane Russo could help.
Texas Sporting Breed Rescue. I adopted my beloved pointer mix from you. Maybe you have a space for one more!!!!
German short hair Pointer rescue should be contacted
We can help at Cane Rosso, as long as he isn’t super aggressive. Fear we can work with. Please let me know.
On February 23, 2019, our capture team caught a Great Pyrenees named Wanda that had taken up residence on a ranch in Garland. She was transferred to Saving Pyrs in Need (SPIN) and adopted to Megan and renamed Ellie. While taking Ellie to the vet, she bolted out of the car and sent us on a 4 week chase in Flower Mound. Megan did a great job with signs and lost dog postings and sightings were regularly reported. With the use of game cameras (THREE!) in the woods and equestrian trails of Copper Canyon, we were able to narrow down her path and times of travel. Without this technology, recapturing Ellie would have been extrememly challenging and maybe impossible.
Please consider us this North Texas Giving Day, September 19. It's because of YOUR donations that we are able to do this amazing work. ... See MoreSee Less
Oh I know all about spooked Pyrs. It’s something else and thank goodness the Ducks got her. She is just beautiful. Happy tails. Thank you DT6
I remember this dog wandering in our neighborhood seemingly searching and searching for someone. I left food and water out for her, as did other neighbors. Happy to see she has a loving home.❤️❤️❤️
Dona Chastain Murphy maybe these folks could help your friend with missing pup
Robert E. Shrewsbury This is the dog everyone in the neighborhood was trying to capture.
In this episode of “This is Duck Team 6” you’ll see the length our capture team goes to in order get a dog off the streets. Some captures take days, others weeks, and in this case, MONTHS. This capture involved a very large English Mastiff named Opal who got out of her collar while out on a walk after she was spooked by a loud noise. Opal had just been adopted 5 days prior after being rescued from a puppy mill.
Over a 5 month period, our capture team tried several different conditioning and capture methods to get Opal but she was too fearful and very smart! We knew we needed help with this case and reached out to the amazing team at Mutts & Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue. Together, we worked out the best possible capture method to bring this sweet girl home.
We are so grateful for everyone at Mutts & Mayhem! Opal would still be out there without your help! We also want to thank Doctor Kathy Rayner for coming out all 3 nights and giving Opal first class treatment, love and a safe place to decompress!
Thank you to our Capture Team for your hard work and dedication to Opal over this entire 5 month period!

YES! An absolutely beautiful video and nice to meet another drop net owner. We at HARTT - Humane Animal Rescue and Trapping Team have had our drop net for 2.5 years and are 10 for 10 on successful captures. This equipment is extraordinary!
High Paws! This is an incredible rescue group!
Unbelievable tenacity and compassion and dedication by the volunteers and vet who worked so hard to rescue that dog.
I hope the owner uses a harness to safely contain her dog.
Thank you Duck Team 6 and Mutts and Mayhem! An happy ending and this made my heart happy. Thank you with all my heart! ❤️🐾❤️🐾
Amazing! Absolutely Amazing! I ❤️ that you are so dedicated to the mission and making sure these babies are safe and cared for! It takes a BIG ❤️ and lots of passion to do what you do.
YES!!!!! Awesome video! Great job!
So long to be outdoors all alone🙁😔
Made my eyes leak...What a dedicated and caring group who undoubtedly saved her life. Have a happy life, Opal!!!
Another example of why Alexa loved DT6! Thank you for the endless things you do to help these babies!! 🐾💗🐾💙
Thank you, again, to all of the volunteers at Duck Team 6 and Mutts and Mayhem. I am so thankful for the work you do!

It was one year ago that our capture team caught Kilo. Kilo got away from home, and he traveled 26 miles before we caught him. During his travels he was bumped by a car, so he was nursing a hip injury, and trying to stay alive in the Texas heat. He finally decided to stop running, and he parked in some bushes outside a Walmart parking lot. We set the trap, and the rest is history.
Our capture team works cases like this every day, and we’re able to do this type of work because of your suppport. North Texas Giving Day is quickly approaching, and It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year. Please consider Duck Team 6 when making your NTGD donation. We’re grateful for your support, and so is Kilo! ♥️♥️

***This is Duck Team 6: Charlie and Taco Catch a Flight***
Over the past several months, we have been working hard to establish transport partnerships with rescues in other states that have room to take in dogs. We’ve been able to transport several dogs looking for their forever families to Washington and Colorado and have seen them go on to find their forever homes within a few short weeks or even just a couple of days.
In this episode of “This is Duck Team 6”, watch as Duck Dogs Charlie and Taco catch a flight with an awesome pilot from Pilots N Paws to Denver Colorado. Charlie and Taco have both been looking for a foster or forever home since late last year. We’re so thankful for @Paws on the Ground Colorado Rescue for taking Charlie into their program and for @Longmont Humane Society for taking Taco! Another massive thank you goes to Mike and Gabrielle Allen for making sure these guys made it safely to their destination!

UPDATE: North Texas Boxer Rescue is taking Max. He will be transported to their vet tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who shared! ♥️ ———————————————————— **COURTESY POST**
**RESCUE GROUP NEEDED**
This gorgeous, brindle boxer was left behind when his family moved away. His name is Max, and he’s approximately 3 years old. Not altered, and we do not have a vetting history. We’re trying to keep him from being surrendered to a shelter. He is good with kids.
Please let us know if you have room for him in your rescue group. You can email us at email@example.com. ... See MoreSee Less
***This is Duck Team 6: Dog Run Builds with the SPCA***
Our outreach team has had a blast partnering with the SPCA of Texas to build dog runs for dogs in South Dallas. Thanks to a grant from Caruth Foundation, we’ve been able to help build over 20 runs. The pups who receive these runs have yards with short inadequate fencing that they often get out of. Their families care about their safety and are often faced with violating city ordinance by tethering them, or allowing them to roam. We’re able to build these runs to give dogs shade, access to water, and room to run! Not only are we able to provide a better life for these dogs, we’re able to build relationships in the community and give owners the information and resources they need to properly care for their pets. Improving the lives of these dogs and building a community of informed animal advocates plays a major role in reducing the street dog population in Dallas.
You all do such wonderful and amazing work.
Phenomenal! Thank you soooo much
This is awesome.
Great job Mark Romick!!! Thank you Duck Team 6 & SPCA of Texas!!! ❤️
Thank goodness for folks like Duck Team Six. Thank you so much for all you do.
God Bless Duck Team 6 for all they do❣️ However, if you bring a dog home, he or she should be part of your family, sharing all of your life and love. So many spend their lives alone in all kinds of weather, lonely and confined.
Y'all guys and gals are AWESOME!
Thank you beautiful people
That’s great. However I always wonder why people get a dog and just put it in the backyard
We received a capture request for two small dogs, living dangerously close to a busy road in Garland, Texas. Our capture team coordinator went out, and set up a feeding station and camera. It didn’t take long for them to appear, so she went back and set up the trap. We knew this case would present a challenge, with two small dogs needing to be caught at the same time, or close together. We caught one, and then when it was time to catch the second one, we put the first one in a crate attached to the trap. We did this to lure the second one in, with our volunteer close by to monitor, and it WORKED!!!
Both pups are with a temporary foster. If you have room for them in your rescue, Duck Team 6 will donate a total of $350 to a 501c3 rescue group. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We received a capture request for a loose dog in Dallas. We’ve been on the case for several weeks, and all of a sudden, this tiny tot appeared. We watched her on our game camera, for a couple of days, and decided we needed to capture her. Due to her size (4 pounds), and the area that she was in, we knew that she needed capture right away!
She loved eating in the big dog trap, but she was too small to set it off. We brought out the little dog trap, and she went right in!
She is with our friends at Paws of Love Animal Rescue, and we will continue to see if an owner is looking for her!
This little fella was running back and forth across a busy road and through pastures. We assume because of his lightning speed, he escaped falling victim to car tires and coyotes. A neighborhood pulled together and tried their best to catch him, but he was a bit too sly. They called us in and since they had done such a great job establishing his feeding location, we caught him in record time! He was literally standing 20 feet away waiting for us to walk away from the trap. With our car doors still open and lights on, we walked the opposite direction to keep him from running across the street again. 5 minutes later, we had him! His Good Samaritan is searching for an owner, but if no owner is found, he will have an amazing home. No more running through the country for this boy! ... See MoreSee Less

We received a capture request for a little dog running loose at Cole park in Dallas. Our capture team went out, set up the trap and camera, locking the trap open, and he went right in the first night! Devin Allen, our newest capture team member, went out the next night, and she got him! Her very first capture! So exciting!
We transferred him to our friends at Apollo Support and Rescue for Abandoned Dogs, and he will be on an extended stray hold while we look for an owner.
Great work, Devin Allen! We’re thrilled to have you on the capture team, and this little nugget is thankful that he’s off the streets, and in a loving foster home!
***This is Duck Team 6: Prince & Apple move to Colorado”
This year, we’re excited to be working with partner rescues to transport adoptable dogs from Dallas to areas of the country that actually have a shortage of dogs. In this video you’ll get to see Prince and Apple, two dogs surrendered from our South Dallas Outreach neighborhood, make the move from Dallas to the Longmont Humane Society in Longmont, Colorado.
These transport opportunities give dogs like Prince and Apple a chance to get adopted much sooner than they would have here. We’re excited to expand our transport efforts and get even more homeless or neglected dogs into loving forever homes.
Congrats on the continued hard work DT6! So happy for Prince and Apple!!
Great job everyone!
THIS IS WONDERFUL NEWS!!!
Yay so happy for Prince and Apple
Tears in my eyes....Absolutely Amazing!!!! ❤️❤️
They are beautiful dogs
My heart is so happy for these two pups. They were so frightened when we first met them. Happy Tails DD and Prince! Stephanie Hernandez Guerra
Omg tears yes! This is why i give my money to the duck team every giving day every year. Please continue to grow and partner with other cities! These babies all deserve a happy ending!
Duck Team 6 captured this pair (male and female) last weekend, and they’re in need of a foster/rescue group. They’re currently with a temp foster now, and she describes them as small, with a sweet temperament.
If you have room for this pair, please send an email to email@example.com. We will include a $350 donation (total) to a 501c3 rescue group. ... See MoreSee Less
We were contacted this week about trying to find Blue a home after her dad passed away unexpectedly. Blue is a 10 year old female pit bull and would need to be the only dog. We are looking for a foster and a rescue to help her transition from the only home she has known. If you are able to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
This is covered by our friends at Apollo Support and Rescue for Abandoned Dogs! ♥️♥️♥️
**RESCUE GROUP NEEDED!!**
We have been asked to assist in capturing this little dog in Dallas. The Good Samaritan describes him as being very small, weighing less than 10 pounds. He is scared of humans, but is friendly with other dogs around the park. He has on a black collar, so there could be an owner, but we need a solid aftercare plan in place for him right after capture.
Duck Team 6 will donate $250 to a 501c3 rescue group that brings him into their program. Please know that we will continue to look for an owner, after he has been captured, and we will report him as “Found” to Dallas Animal Services.
If you have an opening for him within your rescue, please send an email to email@example.com. ... See MoreSee Less
So glad you guys are trying to capture this little guy! A lot of my neighbors are concerned about him but no one has been successful yet.
Congrats on rescuing this little guy! I live nearby and was one of the many who were worried about him and saw myself how quickly he tore off when approached. Any pics post-rescue? Is he a min pin or ... ? Thanks so much again for saving this doggo!
So happy he’s safe!!
Message me to pick up a large kennel I have to donate. Couldn’t figure out how to message you
MO Min Pin Rescue, if a short term foster steps up.
Street to sheets rescue???
Traci Michelle. Help me find a foster, I’ll take him under our 501!
I can’t take anymore right now!!

Thank you so much for creating and implementing this program ... this is such a great idea! Reaching youth to educate them early on animal care is imperative to change. I grew up in a small town and lived in the country. My parents were children of the depression and grew up poor so they didn’t know any better regarding advances in pet care. We had a dog and outdoor cats; they kept getting frustrated the cats kept having litters. I was a very engaged student who read a lot and did well in school. As a junior high student somewhere along the way I educated myself on animal welfare with the tools I had (the internet did not exist then) and educated my parents on spay and neuter; I convinced them we needed to fix the cats - and dog - to avoid further unwanted litters. As a student I helped end the cycle of pet overpopulation caused by my own family. Kids can be amazing ... let’s help arm them to educate their families on responsible pet ownership and animal advocacy!
Would love to sign my daughter up next time! Is there a link for dates of the next event 💕
Awesome!!! Thank you for leading the next generation to do better!!! 🙏🏻❤️
