Time is Running Out for Frisco Pets

Five Fast Steps to Animal Shelter Success

An animal rescue and adoption center could easily be overlooked on the next bond by the City of Frisco, TX if residents do not take action now! The Citizen Bond Committee needs to hear from Frisco residents either by email or in person Monday, October 17th at 5:30PM at City Hall, 5th floor, if they wish to ask the Committee to recommend that city staff present animal shelter options at a later time.

Email Your Citizen Bond Committee

Step 1– Click this link to email the Citizen Bond Committee here bondcommittee@friscotexas.gov and cut and paste the ask below or by all means, feel free to say more. (https://www.friscotexas.gov/1803/Citizen-Bond-Committee)

You can share your lost pet story, rescue experiences, evidence to why we need a shelter, or send photos of your pets. Whatever you choose, be sure to let them know you want to be added to the list of Frisco residents that want to hear options for an animal shelter, and then, have the right to vote on it next May.

Dear Committee Members, Please add my name to the list of your Frisco residents that would like to see an animal shelter on the Bond. I would really like to vote on this. Thank you! Sincerely — add your name and address

Make an Appearance – Monday, October 17th at 5:30PM, City Hall, 5th Floor

Step 2 – They say 80% is showing up and your pets need this. They would do it for you if they could! While the City has decided not to present a shelter to the Committee as part of Public Safety, Frisco residents can rally at this meeting in a show of support to recommend an animal shelter to be discussed at a later date. You don’t have to speak, your presence will say enough. You can leave right after Roll Call and Citizen Input. It shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes. PLEASE save this date, Monday October 17th, and plan to drop by City Hall before 5:30PM and take the elevator to the 5th floor to join the crowd.

Add Your Name – Sign our PETition

Step 3 – Please click this link http://friscospetproject.org/say-yes-to-pets-form/. We will add you to our list of hundreds that have signed up in support of this public service. It also signs you up to newsletters sent only when there are time sensitive bulletins you may need. Once submitted, check your junk or spam folder for a confirmation email to make sure you are counted.

Let Frisco Leaders Know

Step 4 – Don’t let your City Council and City Manager feel left out. On several occasions, the Council has said they are not hearing from enough of their residents. Go ahead and accept this challenge and forward your Committee email on to them at https://www.friscotexas.gov/585/City-Council. Being new, the City Manager likely doesn’t know how passionate you are and how long you’ve been asking for this, so email Mr. Pierson at wpierson@friscotexas.gov.

One More Thing – Let People Know

Step 5 – Please help your Frisco pets and share this plea with others! Encourage them to take these actions as well. And, you’re welcome to let Frisco’s Pet Project know you can come to the Monday meeting. We would love to know if you sent the Committee and/or the City by copying us at fppteam@friscospetproject.org too. Who knows, maybe we will read your comments at an upcoming meeting.
