Officials from the animal welfare organization Operation Kindness held a grand opening ceremony in June for its new Lifesaving Partnerships Hub.

The new hub was announced in September and is funded by a donation from the Rees-Jones Foundation. The hub will offer veterinary support for partnering rescue groups pulling animals from Dallas Animal Services. It will also serve as a hub for Operation Kindness’ Interstate Animal Transport program and as a home base for its Community Initiatives team.
