The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) received $5,000 in the fall of 2022 to purchase 49 new Kuranda beds to help keep hundreds and possibly thousands of shelter dogs elevated and off the cold concrete floors. The funding came from the North Texas Community Foundation’s Animal Welfare grant cycle with the support of our Helen D. and R.E. Wallace Foundation Fund. The fund’s primary focus is to assist efforts in Johnson and Tarrant Counties that rescue and help animals that are injured, abused, or lost.
Nova and her pups (pictured) were rescued from a cruelty and neglect case in January by HSNT’s Cruelty Investigations team. These pups were only three weeks old and severely underweight. After intensive care, Nova and her pups not only survived, but began thriving. The Kuranda bed has provided a comfortable and supportive place for Nova to care for her puppies.
The Helen D. and R.E. Wallace Foundation Fund was established in honor of Mrs. Wallace’s lifelong passion for rescuing injured and strayed animals. The fund’s primary purpose is to assist efforts in Johnson and Tarrant Counties that rescue and help animals that are injured, abused, or lost.
