The Empty Shelter Project – December 9th

Image may contain: one or more people and text
————————————————————————————————————————–
  

The Empty Shelter Project is having another spay and neuter event on December 9th in La Porte, Texas where roughly 300 dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped at NO cost to their owners.

To make these events happen, we must have veterinarians and veterinary technicians.  If you are a vet or a vet tech interested in helping us combat the issue of pet overpopulation in Houston, please send an e-mail to: miller@theemptyshelterproject.org
and we can get you signed up to help (payment is available for all vets and techs).

Even if you cannot attend this event, send an e-mail so you can be contacted for future events.

If you are not a vet or a vet tech and would like to help,
we still need more volunteers!
There are multiple shifts available both on the day of the event
and on the days leading up to the event.

This is Koi

This is Koi.  She has had a terribly lonely life.  She’s learning about love – we’re letting her get used to us all at her pace.  She tentatively came up to see me this morning.  I knelt down and she nuzzled me.  It’s these little things that let me know rescue is worth it.

We are in the funds gathering phase of our biggest, annual fundraiser, Strut Your Mutt (SYM).  Every dollar we raise goes back to help dogs like Koi.
Please help us help them.  Donate to our SYM Team effort –>>> Bit.ly/tanksmom 

NOTE: Checks, or online at my bit.ly/ (above), are the only way your donation will go toward our SYM team’s goal.

Strut Your Mutt for a Cause (2015)

who have since been adopted and are now K-9 Angels alums.

Bring your best friend to Strut Your Mutt:  Enjoy a leisurely fundraising dog walk with (or without) your dog, followed by a doggie-themed festival that includes pet contests, photos, doggie goodies, fun activities for you and your furry friend, food, refreshments and more, all for a great cause – helping homeless pets.

One local team you can consider joining is K-9 Angels Rescue, a dog rescue group located in the West U area, which has saved more than 2,200 dogs from shelters and from the streets since early 2012.  K-9 Angels is an all-breed, all-condition rescue group and the money they raise will be used to continue to grow their adoptions programs and spay/neuter services.

K-9 Angels is particularly close to my heart, since that’s where my husband and I adopted our sweet pup, Yogi, from just about a year ago.

See information about joining K-9 Angels Strut Your Mutt team.  Last year, K-9 Angels raised more than $68,000, coming in second in overall fundraised among all of the Houston rescues that participated.

Plus, learn more about becoming a foster.  K-9 Angels is a 100 percent volunteer and foster-run nonprofit and they’re always seeking additional foster homes to be able to save more dogs.  All K-9 Angels dogs stay with foster homes during the week and are available for adoption every Saturday and Sunday at 5533 Weslayan (next to Chuck-E-Cheese).
