Mission

The Frisco Humane Society (FHS) is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, abused or unwanted animals. We strive to provide caring, responsible homes for these animals. We endeavor to reduce animal overpopulation through spay or neuter and to prevent cruelty to animals. It is our hope and dream that someday there will be no unwanted animals and that the animals will no longer need our advocacy. Frisco Humane Society is an all-volunteer, foster home based, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals in Frisco and the surrounding communities. FHS provides temporary foster care and medical attention for homeless animals until permanent homes can be found. FHS also helps to reduce the number of unwanted animals through education and spay/neuter.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our goal is to help as many unwanted and homeless animals as we can. We are a 100% volunteer, 100% foster home based (no brick and mortar facility) organization. We rely on our adoption fees and public donations to keep our organization operating. We appreciate any financial support we receive, no matter the donation amount. Please help us to continue to save these deserving animals. Voted "Best Place to Find a Best Friend" in Frisco, Texas by Frisco Style magazine in 2013 and 2015. 2022 Milestone Achievement - Frisco Humane Society achieved over 10,000 adoptions in February 2022. We are so excited and proud that we have been able to find forever homes for so many animals. Our volunteers work very hard and are extremely dedicated to our cause and to the animals in their care. The Mayor of Frisco is issuing a Proclamation to Frisco Humane Society in acknowledgement of this accomplishment. March 1, 2022 has been declared Frisco Humane Society Day!

Frisco Humane Society has allocated funds for Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) activities for 2023 to assist its volunteers who support feral cat communities and feral cats in their neighborhoods and surrounding areas. These funds will be used to spay/neuter, vaccinate and combo tests feral cats and then release them back into a supported environment where the animals continue to be supported with food, water and shelter.

Population(s) Served

We advocate and promote on our social media and at our adoption events the free or low cost spay/neuter/vaccination services offered by other animal welfare organizations such as TCAP, SNYP, etc. to promote community awareness and outreach. We also offer free spay and neuter clinics to the residents of the Dallas/Fort Worth, when feasible, to help reduce the number of homeless and unwanted animals in our community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to continue rescuing and finding forever homes for as many homeless and unwanted animals as possible. We also want to continue to educate the public on the humane treatment of animals and the importance of spaying and neutering. We endeavor to reduce animal overpopulation through spay or neuter and to prevent cruelty to animals. It is our hope and dream that someday there will be no unwanted animals and that the animals will no longer need our advocacy.

We will continue to save animals from local city shelters to prevent them from euthanasia. We will continue to attend education events at local schools to help educate children on the importance of humane treatment for animals. We will continue to perform public awareness/education on the importance of spaying and neutering. We will continue to support local groups and businesses who want to conduct fundraising and adopt a pet events for homeless and unwanted animals.

We are continually seeking new volunteers to help within our organization. We need volunteers that are willing to foster animals, volunteer at adoption events, promote fundraising events, maintain cat center at our adoption partner site and various administrative functions.

We hold regular adopt a pet events at a local Petsmart store. We attend offsite adoption/fundraising events upon request. We attend school education programs upon request. We support other local rescue organizations and animal shelters by attending their public awareness/fundraising events.

In February 2022, we achieved a milestone of 10,000 adopted animals since our inception in 2001. We are excited and happy to have found forever homes for so many deserving animals.

275 cats and dogs found permanent homes in 2022 as a result of our animal rescue efforts.

The 2015 FREE Spay Neuter Clinic sponsored and funded by the Frisco Humane Society provided spay/neuter services to 36 animals and rabies vaccinations to 27 animals. These services were provided free of charge to residents in our local Dallas/Fort Worth area. We plan to offer additional FREE Spay Neuter Clinics in the future as resources permit.

We continue to allocate funds for feral cat services and activities provided by our volunteers. We provide medical care and veterinary services to feral cat communities and individual feral cats that are being helped and supported by our organization's volunteers. The allocated funds provide spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworm medication, etc to feral cats that are then released back to a feral community or re-located to new homes such as local barns and ranches.
