Charting impact

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

HSNT's goals are to decrease pet overpopulation, educate the community about responsible pet ownership, combat animal cruelty, and ensure that every animal in North Texas has a place to turn to in their time of need.

HSNT targets pet overpopulation through low cost or free spay/neuter surgeries. We are focused on high-need areas of the community to educate the public on the need to alter pets, and we're providing vouchers for free surgeries, vaccinations and microchips.

HSNT aims to end pet homelessness by increasing adoptions at our four adoption centers and 3 PetSmart locations for cat adoptions. We also have special programming including: our Rae of Hope program for senior citizens to help keep beloved pets in their homes, by providing free veterinary services such as vaccinations, microchipping, flea & tick prevention and heartworm prevention; and, our Foster Heroes, by employing the volunteer services of hundreds of foster families to provide temporary housing and care for animals, until permanent homes can be found. We also work with other organizations locally and across the United States to transport healthy, adoptable animals to other areas of the country.

Our Cruelty Investigations team works with local authorities to rescue animals from abuse and neglect throughout North Texas.

HSNT has a staff of 100 to provide care for more than 1,200 animals in our care daily. We have four adoption centers located in the Fort Worth area to find homes for companion animals. Our ranch in Joshua, Texas, houses adoptable equine and livestock. Our spay/neuter clinic performs more than 7,000 surgeries each year and we fund nearly 2,000 more surgeries through other organizations.

In 2020, HSNT :

* Fund homes for 8,871 animals.
* Transferred 1,953 animals to other organizations to have a better chance at finding their lifelong, loving home.
* Reunited 336 lost animals to their owners.
* Rescued 213 animals from cruelty.
* Performed & funded 8,103 spay/neuter surgeries
