Press Kit: Spread our story
Help us spread the word that spay and neuter of dogs and cats is the only answer to 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.
For a list of relatively low cost veterinarians in Houston who provide spay and neuter services,
Help a homeless and unwanted animal; in most cases, you are the only person who will.
Rescue groups are full and each day, adoptable animals are euthanized at Houston shelters to make room for more unwanted animals. Last year, 13,226 dogs and cats were euthanized at Houston's BARC  and countless others were killed at the SPCA, Houston Humane Society, Harris County Animal Control and Citizens for Animal Protection .
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.

People from around the country ask how homeless 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 tell them that we expect and desperately need a humane solution to animal overpopulation in Houston.
Community education and free and low cost spay/neuter services are the only solutions. We can no longer accept the status quo; it is time for a change.
