We are you

Created on July 1, 2018, Frisco’s Pet Project is not affiliated with any single, local rescue organization or animal business. We are a group of citizens from Frisco and neighboring communities who came together to call attention to the lack of an animal adoption and pet rescue center of any kind in Frisco. We wish to encourage great minds to do great things for our pets, and this group of volunteer residents and animal advocates has researched and created a lengthy list of animal protection and awareness programs that Frisco could begin to develop. Frisco’s Pet Project’s mission is to keep Frisco pets in Frisco while providing the best experience for current and future Frisco pet owners and their pets.

Many are unaware

Currently, Frisco does not have a rescue or holding center of any kind. Instead, Frisco pets sit, sometimes for hours, in any one of six air-conditioned/heated trucks while owners are being located. If the pet is not registered with the city, isn’t chipped, the owner isn’t home or doesn’t respond to calls, the pet leaves the city limits and is taken to Collin County Animal Services (CCAS) in McKinney, Texas. Would residents even know to call CCAS in McKinney? Precious time is being lost waiting on a return phone call, searching social media, printing up flyers, and driving to nearby city shelters. Frisco residents are the real heroes and rescuing lost and stray animals every day. If you don’t believe us, check any one of the five lost and found pet sites for Frisco and surrounding communities.

We hoped our first goal could be

Keeping to our mission, the Frisco’s Pet Project’s residents thought it best to focus their efforts to help the city build a temporary 72-hour holding center for pets that are picked up by Frisco Animal Services. This gives Frisco pets and their owners more time before they have to travel outside of Frisco to search for their pet at Collin County Animal Services in McKinney, or at other nearby shelters in Plano, Denton, Allen, Little Elm, or The Colony.

Any results?

February 7, 2023 – After years of being told that the only way Frisco would consider its own local animal shelter is if it were put on a bond, and even though the City’s own appointed Citizen Bond Committee approved an Animal Services Facility to be placed on Frisco Bond Ballot for May 2023, Frisco’s City Council with the Mayor leading the charge pulled the line item from the ballot, taking the residents’ right to vote away.

Keep Frisco Pets in Frisco!
