We are excited to announce our Fifth Annual Winter Blanket Drive benefiting Texas Humane Heroes Pet Adoption Center. We are collecting new fleece blanket throws to help keep shelter animals warm and cozy while they wait to be adopted into their forever home. You can help by donating one or more new fleece blanket throws — they’re the perfect size!
How COVID-19 Affected the Adoption Center . . .
Along with the rest of the world, Texas Humane Heroes could not have known the critical impact COVID-19 would have on their organization. In spite of the challenges, they have remained open safely throughout the pandemic. Many of their partner shelters closed due to space constraints and sanitation concerns, but TXHH adapted quickly to rescue dogs and cats from other shelters being forced to euthanize due to lack of space.
With two locations on 22 acres of property, TXHH was able to increase their intake and implement measures to allow adopters to safely connect with animals waiting for adoption. In the first six months of 2020, TXHH rescued animals from 12 new shelter partners, bringing the total number of shelters served to 72. In addition, they expanded the surgical schedule to meet the increased need for low-cost spay and neuter services.
Here’s What They Do . . .
TXHH is a no-kill, private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1979 to rescue dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters in Texas. They save animals at highest risk for euthanasia. They transport, evaluate, treat, vaccinate, spay, neuter, and provide daily care for dogs and cats in need. Basically, the team provides comprehensive medical evaluation, treatment and preventative services to protect the health of each animal before they move into someone’s heart and home.
