Animal Connection of Texas (ACT) is dedicated to the elimination of animal suffering.

ACT is a grassroots, all volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with no funds going toward salaries. Contributions are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Founded in 1986, ACT has accomplished the following:

+ Fought and won a 4-year battle to end pound seizure in Dallas (the practice of selling dogs and cats from city shelters to research labs).

+ Established SNYP (discount spay/neuter coupon program, used throughout the metroplex). Call 214-349-SNYP for coupons and information.

+ Helped bring to Dallas:
Pet-Fixx (mobile spay/neuter clinic, free to low-income residents)
Luv-A-Pet (now Spay/Neuter
Assistance Program

+ Placed anti-fur billboards and TV commercials

+ ACT and Texans Exposing Petland shut down the Lewisville and Arlington Petland stores.

+ ACT members collected signatures and spoke at city council meetings to help pass a proposition to fund a new animal shelter for the city of Dallas. The proposition passed in the 1996 bond election.

+ Placed anti-rodeo ads on DART buses

+ Hosted a 9-month long weekly radio show that featured topics on animal welfare, animal rights, the environment, and some social justice issues.

+ Fought and won a one and a half day long campaign to stop Cheaper Than Dirt from selling items made from endangered African elephant feet and skin.

+ Public education on spay/neuter. ACT worked with SNAP to widely distribute Spanish-language spay/neuter information as well as continuing to promote SNYP's discount coupons.
