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.
