The three years my family has been participating in the Extreme Mutt Makeover have been the most rewarding volunteer efforts we've experienced. My daughter participated the first two years and my granddaughters participated this year. The Humane Society of North Texas pulls dogs from shelters that they feel deserve a second chance and applicants are chosen to train the dogs from 6-9 weeks and then they return to complete in the EMM with the goal of finding these sweet dogs forever homes. The dogs my family have trained have found the most wonderful homes that they would never have had an opportunity to be exposed to. It takes a lot of effort and money to put the event together and the team from HSNT does a wonderful job, especially this year, 2012, when they lost their biggest sponsor. They didn't let that deter them from carrying on this wonderful event and we all hope they can continue and grow bigger and better.

I brought a little kitten that had been living in my backyard to the shelter. The folks were so lovely and helpful. I hope the little one finds a home. If you're looking for a pet, I can't reccomend this shelter highly enough.

HSNT is known for doing the most with the least. My wife has been dedicated to HSNT for more than 20 years! Through her affiliation with HSNT she has filled our hearts and our home with some amazing animals! Currently we are blessed with 4 dogs and a cat and are often found debating with them - who rescued who! They fill our lives with much joy and love and we try to do the same for them. I have assisted HSNT as a vounteer in many ways. One of my proudest acheivements was when I assisted with the seizure of almost 500 dogs from a filth filled puppy mill. From this rescue our family was blessed with a silly, goofy, laughable, and extremely lovable bassett named Puzzyle. When I watch her clumsy gallops across our hardwoods stopping just in time to make the leap to the couch I can't help but wonder what her life would have been if HSNT had not gotten to her in time! When she looks at me I can feel her thanks and I am so proud to have been a part of changing her life!

This organisation really deserves a lot of credit for taking care of all the animals that people sometimes treat as toys. Just visit their location and see how easy folks just drop of their pets when is it not convenient to them anymore. These poor pets are taken in by the humane society and given shelter for as long as they can and hope someone will come by to adopt it again. They spay and neuter all incoming animals and provide them with all medical care they need to be adoptable again. This organisation can really use your donations just to be able to continue providing this service in Tarrant count, in addition you can really help them by adopting a pet and take care of it. If you want a dog or cat go get it there, they have many good animals to choose from.

Many volunteers that love the animals and do everything they can to help them .

How did you find this group?

hear say and internet

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

never buy a dog or cat from a pet store or breeder, always get ont at a shelter, or at one of the adoptions days at the pet stores. They have so many great animals there it would be difficult not to be able to find a great pet.
