October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) sponsors this event to promote the adoption of dogs from local shelters. According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. When these abandoned and often abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home.
We Love Texas Humane Heroes!
Texas Humane Heroes (TXHH) is a no-kill, nonprofit organization with adoption centers in Leander and Killeen. The organization rescues dogs (and cats, too!) from overcrowded shelters throughout Texas. In 2019, TXHH placed more than 3,000 dogs and cats in loving homes, rescued animals from 57 shelters in Texas, and spayed and neutered some 5,351 animals.
Happy Tails Pet Resort is proud to sponsor TXHH during our annual Winter Blanket Drive, which begins next month. Stay tuned for more information about our Fifth Annual Winter Blanket Drive!
