HSNT present first Kurban Award for Equine Rescue work

Kurban Award and HSNT Equine Rescues

Since most of us usually deal primarily with small animals this is a bit different. The Humane Society of North Texas gave the first Kurban award, named for Judge Kurban who retired in 2006 and was a longtime friend to animals, to Detective Steve S. Shaw with the Johnson County Sheriffs Department in recognition of all his work on behalf of the animals of Johnson County. The award was presented on February 22, 2008. Tammy Roberts from our cruelty department put together a short presentation illustrating some of the equine cases our agencies have worked together on over the past year as part of the tribute to him. HSNT took in 101 horses in 2007 and have already taken 48 in 2008. HSNT's accomplishments working with the Johnson County Sheriff's Department are presented in this moving montage of images:
