Welcome:Together we can make a lasting difference
Engaging communities with pet care education and spay neuter solutions.
Houston, Texas and surrounding Harris County have a terrible problem with homeless, unwanted and neglected animals. It is difficult to walk or drive through some areas or neighborhoods without seeing animals that are homeless, hungry, suffering and in need. Others have a home but are unspayed, unneutered and producing unwanted litters that may end up homeless on the street. Some caring residents try to help by giving them food and water. Animal rescuers try to save others but there are just too many to save. We cannot continue to try to just manage this situation. It is time for a change.
Help us spread the word that spay and neuter of dogs and cats is the only answer to Houston's animal overpopulation. Spay and neuter your own pets and encourage everyone around you to do the same. Encourage the city of Houston to offer free and/or low cost spay neuter services in communities that are hardest hit with stray and unwanted animals.
Help a homeless and unwanted animal; in most cases, you are the only person who will. Rescue groups and no-kill shelters are full, and unfortunately many animals are euthanized at some shelters. If you see an approachable dog or cat, give it food and water. Take it to the vet, get it spayed or neutered and find it a home. Encourage others to do the same. You can do so much more than you realize; find out just how much by helping a homeless animal.
Reach out to your elected officials. People from around the country ask how unwanted animals can live in such terrible conditions in a city as wealthy as Houston. We often ask ourselves the same thing. It is time to ask our elected officials that question. We need to let them know that we expect and desperately need a humane solution to animal overpopulation in certain parts of Houston that focuses on free and low cost spay and neuter services. We will no longer accept the status quo. It is time for a change.
