ANIMAL WELFARE

We believe in supporting the needs of our animal companions and the healing qualities of the human-animal bond. Grants may include spay & neuter clinics, adoption centers and improvements in animal welfare.

For individuals with lower incomes, the benefits and comfort of owning a pet can come at too high a price. To keep pets and their owners healthy, Don’t Forget To Feed Me provides free pet food to low-income or disadvantaged pet owners through local pet food pantries, senior centers, and their partnership with the American Red Cross. The organization aims to ensure that no pet owner ever denies themselves food, medication, or other necessities in order to keep their pet companion fed. Their work allows pet owners to provide nutritionally appropriate food for their pet and not sacrifice their own wellbeing.

Gifts will be used to purchase cat and dog food to distribute in the North Texas region.

Gifts of $1,000 or more are greatly appreciated.

Total Budget: $17,000

Formerly known as Project Henry, this endowed fund was established to support the Fort Worth Animal Treatment Ward in perpetuity for ongoing costs of the facility that is now operated by the Chuck Silcox Animal Center in Fort Worth, TX. In 2020, the Chuck Silcox Animal Center took in 15,666 animals, many of whom requiring critical medical care.

Grants from the earnings of this fund will be made annually to the Animal Treatment Ward.

The goal of the Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT)  is to improve the lives of North Texas animals and the people who love them by offering a variety of innovative, affordable and lifesaving services to our community. The board, staff and volunteers are motivated by the unifying belief: kindness for animals is part of what it means to be human.

HSNT is funded entirely by private donations. They accept animals no matter where their owner resides or how full the shelter is. In 2020, despite the challenges of a worldwide pandemic, HSNT attained a live release rate of 95%, found homes for 8,871 pets, completed or funded 8,103 spay and neuter surgeries, and saved more than 200 pets from cruelty.

$1,000 – for the Foster Heros Program to provide approximately 10 litters of kittens or puppies (and the mother) with needed supplies including specialty food, bottles, formula, heating pads, beds, crates, blankets, toys, treats and more.

$2,500 – for the Rae of Hope program to helps 20 seniors retain ownership of their pets by providing free basic veterinary care such as vaccinations, a microchip, flea and tick prevention, heartworm tests and heartworm prevention medication.
