Humane Tomorrow (HT) was founded in 1997 and is one of the most respected humane organizations in North Texas because of our innovative and comprehensive approach to animal rescue and welfare. Animals are housed in foster homes with families to care for and get to know the animals before they are adopted. Every animal adopted through Humane Tomorrow is fully vetted, altered, and medically and behaviorally ready to start their new life. Humane Tomorrow makes a lifetime commitment to its animals and the families who adopt them.

Humane Tomorrow focuses on keeping animals out of the shelter system as well as placing those in need of new homes. In addition to an adoption program, we offer spay and neuter assistance; character education for youth in our area; dedicated resources for people facing relinquishing pets over medical costs and pet deposits; and created the first successful ground transport program to get animals out of Texas (Love on Wheels) in 2013. Humane Tomorrow's network of volunteers and partners is ready to spring into action quickly in response to situations in which animals may be in danger. These can include seizure of animals from a hoarder or a natural event such as a hurricane or tornado.

Since its founding in 1997, Humane Tomorrow has found homes for over 12,000 animals. Our all-volunteer team celebrated the grand opening of the Glenn & Shirley Hulcher Family Animal Care Center in Argyle in 2020, which acts as an intake center between shelter and foster home for new animals to the program, as well as hosting community education and adoption events and providing emergency sheltering when needed due to natural disasters and large-scale animal rescues.

Our Needs

Humane Tomorrow created the Mercy Fund in 1998 as a result of the seizure of a large group of dogs from a breeder. The condition of the dogs was appalling and required a great deal of medical care before they could be ready for adoption. We realized that adoption fees alone could never pay for their care, so a special donation fund was established that helps us provide victims of abuse and neglect the care they need. Over the years, the Mercy Fund, named for one of the original dogs rescued from the breeder, has allowed Humane Tomorrow to come to the rescue not only of animals, but also of our partner shelters and good Samaritans desperate to help sick, injured, or abused animals, but lacking the funds to do so. The Mercy Fund spent $150,000 last year helping animals survive medical conditions that might have led to euthanasia in a shelter.

Another program, Flower's Fund, works to keep animals in the loving homes they already have. Since 2020, this program has seen a huge increase in requests for assistance as pet owners struggled to pay for veterinary costs or housing costs. Flower's Fund helps pet owners by defraying the cost of unexpected expenses, and helps the community by keeping those animals out of local shelters. A typical case can easily cost $2000 but keeps a family together and an animal off the euthanasia list.
