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

I have been a foster for Frisco Humane Society for over 3 years and I feel honored to be part of such a great rescue group. Everyone involved with this group is completely dedicated to helping animals who have found themselves in desperate situations find a great permanent home with people who truly appreciate the love they have to give. Our adoption councilors are amazing at matching our adoptable pets with the personality of each qualified adopter. So many adopters stay in contact with our fosters for years after the adoption just to send pictures of how well the pet is doing and how much the pet has become a cherished family member. I am so proud to be part of this wonderful group.

I adopted my first cat from them, and shortly after inquired for another cat that would be a good partner for him. They are inseparable now. The adoption process was through with additional resources for care provided. Both cat were up to date with medical records making it easy to transfer to personal vet. They allowed meet ups to ensure that cats and humans were good matches. They also helped foster and adopt out a 6 week old kitten that I found at my apartment complex.

We adopted 1 dog and 4 cats from the Frisco Humane Society. They are an awesome nonprofit animal rescue organization that tries to find the best match for the adopting family and animals. The fee is very reasonable and volunteers are awesome! When we adopted our dog, they checked our our house and let us "try" out the dog to make sure that it would be a good match.

Frisco Humane Society is a wonderful nonprofit. I have adopted two pets from them and could not be happier. They allow you to complete a pre adoption process with your pet that allows you to learn about the dog and make sure they are the right fit for your family. Our latest adoption, Poppie, had a horrible start to life and has a hard time trusting other animals and people. Jackie came out and helped us introduce her to our new puppy and it was like a light flipped. Poppie accepted him and all the stress for our family ended. Jackie has offered advice to us since our 2018 adoption when we have asked. They advocate not only for the animal, but for the family interested in them to insure success and create a happy healthy environment for both. Thank you from the bottom of heart!

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

Frisco Humane Society is an organization that works to adopt pets to forever homes. Their goal is not just to shuffle pets, but to find the best forever-fit for both the pet and the family.
I have been privileged to add three dogs to my home from Frisco Humane Society. I can not imagine my life before them —Roxy, Vinny and Rex.

We were new to Texas and when my son said he wanted a dog, we didn’t know where to go. It was close to Christmas, and I happened to drive by Pet Smart. I could see there was a pet adoption event happening, so I walked in. It was then that I met the fabulous volunteers who work for Frisco Humane Society. They were kind and patient, and ultimately matched my family with the perfect dog, a four-year-old Chi-weenie named Chelsea. FHS has rescued Chelsea after she had given birth to three puppies in a local shelter. Fast forward one year and we adopted another dog from FHS, a sweet Chihuahua named Maya. I admire the organization so much that I now volunteer as a foster mom myself. Rescuing dogs with FHS is the most rewarding service work I’ve ever done. I am so thankful I walked into Pet Smart that day. #adoptdontshop

We adopted our sweet Carly from Frisco Humane. She had a rough start in life and had trouble getting through her first home visits. I contacted Frisco Humane as soon as I saw her pictures. I fell in love immediately. We went to the adoption event where we met wonderful fosters/volunteers who made everything so easy. You can really see the love they have for these animals. We took Carly home that day and love her to death. We are also still in contact with her fosters. Frisco Humane is doing great things!

After working closely with the cat adoption crew I witnessed a great injustice. After a cat had taken to a couple and the couple had stayed and waited for the adoption agency to get back to them for over 2 hours and followed their policies as well as filled out their paperwork, the cat was given to member of the organization itself who did not file for adoption. The couple that had wanted to adopt the cat had waited for days and checked up on him daily, visiting him and making sure they were going to get him. However after they left, the cat in question was handed off to another associate and replaced with a different cat. Injustice and unfair treatment to those who have fallen for an animal.

Thank you very much for your comments. We will strive to make our adoption process more obvious to the general public in the future. We do not adopt out on a first come, first serve basis. This is stated on our Website and our adoptable animal profiles on Petfinder. We review all applications received to ensure that the animal and the applicant are a good match based on our personal experiences with the animal. These animals live in our homes with us so we are familiar with habits and behaviors. http://www.friscohumanesociety.com/Adoption-Process. The kitten was at the adoption center less than 36 hours before it was adopted so the kitten was not there for any prospective adopter to wait days for him or to check up on him daily. He arrived just before 12pm on Saturday and was adopted out the next afternoon. It was also very clearly marked on his adoption card that he was applications only and the foster had to approve all applications prior to adoption. Siamese mix kittens are always very popular and attract lots of potential adopters. We received several applications on the Siamese kitten on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday morning, the couple that had been waiting at the location wanting to adopt the kitten arrived two hours prior to our adoption start time. They were informed when the adoption counselor arrived that they were welcome to apply for the kitten but that we had already received several applications on the kitten. The couple was okay with our adoption application process and our adoption counselor also tried to help locate another Siamese kitten available for adoption. A family that had already completed an application for the kitten was selected to adopt it and the required adoption paperwork was completed and the adoption fee was paid.

My dog died and I wasn't quite ready for a new doggie. I was reading the Frisco paper and saw a dog smiling at me and I knew this was my new dog. It was the Featured Pet for Frisco Humane Society so I gave them a call. From the first contact with FHS to meeting with the foster family that took care of my dog, I was impressed. I got to meet the dog at the foster's home and they were completely honest about the dog's personality. I love that they do home visits and truly want a good match for each dog they adopt out. The process was easy and straightforward and after a trial stay I knew I had the perfect dog for me! I have nothing negative to say. The whole experience with FHS was positive for me and I still keep in touch with my dog's wonderful foster family five years later!

January 2014, I adopted my cat from Frisco Humane Society. Last summer, my dog died of old age and I had moved to an apartment. I decided it was time to get another pet. I had only had dogs in the past, but decided a cat would be a good choice since I had no yard. I wanted a cat with a friendly "dog-like" personality. The next weekend, I met Nikki. Nikki greets me at the door when I come home. She follows me from room-to-room. Thank you Frisco Humane Society for helping me find the perfect pet.

FHS is a non profit organization. I have volunteered off and on for over 9 years. This program has high standards when it comes to caring for cats and dogs (occasionally ducks). FHS makes sure all their pets are spayed/neutered and healthy. Its not easy being a foster mom. FHS main goal is to find loving homes for cats and dogs.

I adopted my baby girl from FHS in December of 2006. I started the process in October of that year. The two month delay was due to her health. She needed to be seen by a vet for mange and FHS wanted to make sure she received vet care and was in perfect health before they let me sign official paperwork. My baby girl was born blind and deaf and was in a special foster for her condition (blindness and deafness). FHS did everything in their power to provide great care for her as soon as they were made aware of her health. She is my sweet Angel Aikman, and I will forever be in debt to FHS for blessing me with her! She is a very special girl, and I am lucky enough to call her mine.

I was a volunteer for this organization for 3 years. During that time I worked in the cat program to help get rescued cats adopted to good homes. In early 2013 we discovered this organization had not been a recognized non-profit for 4 years, even though they were still operating as one. There were also very questionable and unethical activities taking place, along with a serious question on the financials and where some money was being spent. During the period they were not a recognized non-profit, they were still taking donations from the public, requesting, and receiving, grants from different places, etc. Over half of the volunteers asked for the board to step down and they all refused. They did, however, "fire" any volunteer to dared ask for their resignation. Some of those were dog and cat fosters and all of their foster animals were thrown out of their program as well, leaving the fosters to financially care for them. The board members have been in place for 8 years and they have no intention of stepping down anytime soon. As long as they are still on the board, this organization will continue to be mismanaged and using questionable, if not illegal, tactics. The public needs to be aware of these issues.

Frisco Humane Society is and always has been an ethical organization. The Board of Directors would like to address the review comments that were made by a disgruntled volunteer. We had some volunteers resign in 2013. Some of these former volunteers started their own rescue organization or joined this new rescue organization. We believe these comments were posted on Guidestar.org to prevent our organization from being approved for a sponsorship relationship with another organization for which we applied for participation. Part of the approval process included being in good standing with the public. We believe these comments were posted during our approval process with the intent of having our application denied based on public views of our organization. Rather than moving forward and focusing their efforts on rescuing and helping animals, these individuals have their primary focus on disparaging our organization. 1) In 2007, it was discovered by our President that our Texas charter or certificate of authority was forfeited due to a renewal form not being renewed in 2003 when it expired. This filing is required every four years. The renewal notice had been made to a former volunteer who had not been associated with the organization for several years and to an old address which the volunteer had not lived at for many years. The required document was re-filed immediately when we discovered the oversight. Our franchise tax/sales and use tax exemptions were re-instated back to their inception dates of 10/23/2001 with no penalties or adverse impact to our organization or to any of our supports/vendors. Our Texas franchise status can be verified online at https://mycpa.cpa.state.tx.us/coa/Index.html. The FHS taxpayer id is 17529654679. 2) The Frisco Humane Society is very ethical, professional and frugal with its financial management. Our financials are public record and filed with the IRS and available for public review. Our financial spend is valid and our records include sufficient documentation for the expense. There is no unethical activity related to the financial management of our organization. 3) The services of two volunteers which had existing foster animals were terminated in 2013. These volunteers were given multiple options regarding their foster animals which included allowing them to transfer their fully vetted animals to another rescue organization, FHS asking for the animals to be given back to us and/or offering to find new fosters for them in order for the animals to remain in our program. Our requests for the return of the animals were denied by both of the terminated volunteers. We have termination letters, attorney letters and legal documents to support this. One of these individuals even filed two lawsuits against FHS for which FHS prevailed in both cases. Upon their termination from FHS both of these volunteers became members of the new rescue organization that we mentioned above. 4) The Board of Directors has never done anything illegal. These comments are just being thrown out there with nothing to support them in order to continue to slander/liable the Board and the organization. 5) The FHS 2008 financials were audited by the IRS in 2011. The final determination letter from the IRS was issued in 2012. These are public records documents and are available for public review upon request or at guidestar.org.

I became a foster volunteer in 2003. In my almost 10 years as a volunteer I placed over 100 shelter dogs in their adoptive homes. In the summer of 2013 the Board of Directors for FHS received a vote of no confidence from over 45 of it's 80 volunteers. The vote was taken based on the BOD's failure to follow it's own bylaws, incorrect reporting on their IRS 990, failure to remain a registered corporation in the state of Texas for over 4 years and it's use of charity funds for use on animals that were the property of private citizens and not part of any rescue organization. The actions taken by the FHS BOD was to terminate volunteers including their foster animals. The FHS BOD failed to provide placement options for 18 dogs with two fosters. They have denied any medical support for these animals which were legally pulled from city shelters under FHS. I have the termination emails with the details which support this action.

Upon their termination from FHS both of these volunteers became members of the new rescue organization that we mentioned above. 4) The FHS bylaws, Articles of Incorporation and IRS Form 1023 state that the organization was established to help unwanted, homeless, abused animals and animals in need. In early 2013, a FHS volunteer's mother found a stray, injured Pitbull and asked if we could take the animal in to our foster animal program. The Board made a decision based on its current policy at the time that we could not take the Pitbull, Red Duke, into our adoption program but that we would financially provide the medical care that the animal needed for its injuries, provide the medical for neutering, vaccinations, heartworm treatment, etc. and that we would promote the dog on our Website and Petfinder site for adoption. Red Duke was taken to one of our participating veterinarians for his medical and vetting needs; the payment for these services was rendered directly to our veterinarian. Some of our former volunteers have misrepresented the facts related to this situation stating that we used funds to care for an individual’s personal dog thus misusing the organizations funds. We have Board Meeting minutes to support the decision that was made and stating that Red Duke was a found, injured stray animal, not someone’s personal pet. After being vetted by FHS, Red Duke was accepted in to the adoption program by another rescue organization (Collin County Castaways), renamed Duke, and is currently on Adopt-A-Pet.com for adoption at http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/8682164-mckinney-texas-american-pit-bull-terrier-mix. We have also since revised our policy our allowing the admittance of Pitbulls into our program. 5) The Board of Directors has never done anything illegal. These comments are just being thrown out there with nothing to support them in order to continue to slander/liable the Board and the organization. 6) The FHS 2008 financials were audited by the IRS in 2011.
