Due to the increased number of animals being surrendered to HSNT's facility and the extremely high call volume, we ask that you fill out the surrender form, to request an appointment. We appreciate your patience.
The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) is here to help each family work through the best options for their pet(s), including rehoming and surrendering. Below are the most common recommended steps.
