Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: The Frisco Humane Society 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 (FHS) is an all-volunteer, 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 abandoned, abused and unwanted animals through education and spay/neuter. The Frisco Humane Society was formed on October 2001 by a group of experienced rescue workers. To date, FHS has saved over 9,400 animals and our goal is to save as many unwanted adoptable animals as we can from being euthanized in area shelters. We also want to prevent countless numbers of unwanted animals from being born through our spay/neuter program. FHS rescues dogs and cats primarily from city run Animal Control Facilities. All animals in the FHS program live in foster homes until they can be placed permanently. FHS provides all necessary medical care for each animal, including:  Rabies Vaccinations  Viral Vaccinations  Deworming  Canine Heartworm Test / Feline Leukemia and Aids Test  Heartworm Treatment (if necessary)  Spaying & Neutering  Microchips

We adopted a dog from FHS 13 years ago, and again 9 years ago. We were so appreciative of this great group that we have participated in fun runs and other fundraising events over the years. About 6 years ago FHS helped us foster and find a home for a sweet schnauzer we found. And in the last 3 years they helped foster to adopt 3 more members of our family :)! FHS cares for the health and well being of the animals they take in, trying to get them to their forever home!

I’ve adopted 3 wonderful dogs from FHS. All 3 were rescued from horrible experiences but have still turned out to be the sweetest dogs I have owned. I don’t know why people treat animals so inhumanly but I sure am glad that FHS was there to save them from their situations and treat them with kindness and love until they found their forever home with me!!!

I’ve been able to help so many beautiful babies find their forever homes. These are just a few of them and I was even lucky enough to find 3 babies of my own!

Absolutely love this organization! The way they care for their dogs before they find their forever home is exceptional. I recently adopted Cash from them and he is our third baby we have rescued thanks to their program

The Frisco Humane Society is such an incredible organization. They have helped hundreds of animals, including a few of my own. Their giving hearts and fosters are incredible people. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a new fur baby to go thru the FHS.

The amount of gratitude I have for the Frisco Humane Society is beyond words! Julie Wilson is the incredible person who helped me through the process of adopting my baby. She made sure that before Bruno even got to my home that he was up to date on all his shots and she even brought a goodie bag with him! You can tell that they genuinely love and care for each of the fosters and make sure that they find homes where they will be happy and cared for. Truly a wonderful experience as well as a wonderful organization!

I have volunteered with Frisco Humane Society for 15 years and absolutely love this group! It’s nice to be able to make sure your foster animal works in your household (specific size for me as we have larger dogs of our own). Of course we have also adopted (foster failures) too! It’s nice to foster in our home to get to know the personality of the dog and be able to choose the best possible fit for their forever home! Love love love this group!

Forever grateful for Frisch Humane society and Julie. We adopted our fur baby in March! Julie was beyond helpful, she let us borrow a kennel and gave us a a few toys and food to start us up for a few weeks. I truly believe this organization try’s its hardest to make sure everything goes well for the animals being adopted and for those adopting!

Several months after the loss of my sweet cat I had the pleasure of meeting the volunteers at Frisco Humane Society at the PetSmart location in Frisco. They were so kind and introduced me to Teddy. Somehow they new we would be a great match. Teddy has been such a wonderful addition to our family and is loved by our cat Lava as well. The volunteers at Frisco Humane really helped me and checked in to see how my sweet boy was adapting. I highly recommend this group if you’re looking for a furever family member.

This organization is near and dear to my heart as we adopted a puppy from them 4 years ago and she has been a great addition to our family. I love that they foster all the animals and everyone I've meet has been so nice!

I’m impressed at how extensive the adoption process was. They do all they possibly can to make sure the animal that’s getting adopted doesn’t have a bad experience. It’s a necessary process in order to make sure every animal is placed in a forever home. They are honest and tell you everything they know about the animal. That way you can make an educated and good decision. My experience was good. And my animals been thru a lot. Which is something they let you know. But, then of course I could tell them that I’m very patient and have the time to give my animal. She’s doing exceptionally well and she’s been with us a very short time. She’s in her forever home and it took these volunteers to ask the right questions and place her in her forever home. ADOPT PEOPLE!

I am so grateful for Frisco Humane Society. They are well organized and their foster parents really care for the pets waiting for their forever home. We adopted Hercules from Petsmart in Frisco. His foster mom made sure to write his history which made us want to adopt this older cat who had been abandoned on the streets and run over. Meeting his foster mom, Marla, we could tell how much she wanted him to have a forever home. She took the time to get to know us to make sure we were the right parents for Hercules. Frisco Humane Society has a big heart, they care about animals and Frisco is so lucky to have this non-profit organization. Below is our happy cat Hercules. We love him so much. Without Frisco Humane Society this swert kitty would never have found his forever home.

The Frisco Humane Society came to my rescue after I rescued 12 kittens from drowning back in 2015. One sadly did not make it. The FHS cat coordinator was quick to respond to my plea for help and the entire organization immediately went to work helping me with the proper medical care and eventual adoption of these sweet furballs. If it wasn't for FHS, I don't know if these kitties would have received the extra medical attention they needed nor find the perfect homes. They are a great group of volunteers with the sole purpose of protecting the pets in and around Frisco. Thank you, FHS for all you do!

Frisco Humane Society is a wonderful organization, and I am so proud to be a part of it! Our cats and dogs are loved and cared for in our network of fantastic foster homes, and by the time they are adopted they are ready to become new furry family members. Foster moms and dads make real connections with each adopter and are always helpful in making the animal’s transition to its forever home as easy as possible. They really care about their animals, and it shows! Our adoption counselors and Petsmart caregivers are also invaluable, and essential to our success. Overall, FHS is a compassionate, dedicated group of people who work hard every day to improve the lives of the animals in their program and to find them the very best forever homes.
