We know, we know. You’ve heard it a million times. And now that it is hurricane season in Houston, you are going to hear it another million times. But with the swarm of animals HHS took in during Hurricane Ike, it bears repeating. Trust me on this.
Watch the video to catch a few tips on how to prepare for your pet this hurricane season! And please pass along to everyone you know with pets!!!
Lizzy, a 4 year old rottweiler mix that is currently in our Diamonds in the Ruff program, received 4 weeks of training at Lone Star Pet Lodges in Missouric City. As you can see from the video, she has learned how to sit, stay until called over, and even to roll over!! We are so proud of Lizzy and extremely grateful to Lone Star Pet Lodges for their training efforts. Even more, the Diamonds in the Ruff program has been partially funded by an Innovation Grant from the Pedigree Foundation. Without those awesome folks we wouldn’t have been able get Lizzy the training she so desperately needed!
Meet Baby and Juno, an odd match up of two dogs that have become fast friends at the Houston Humane Society. Both of these awesome pups need a home, so please share with everyone you know!
In Texas, everything is bigger. The state itself, the size of our hearts, the impressiveness of our character, heck even our hair :). One of the favorite sayings around the state is Go Big or Go Home! It’s the battlecry of high school football teams around the state, been heard uttered by champions and cowboys alike. Urban Dictionary defines it as: an expression the speaker says to the listener to encourage the listener to be extravagant, to go all the way, and do whatever you are doing to its fullest – and not flake out.
So what better slogan to alter and adopt for our ASPCA Challenge??? HHS wants to be extravagant, we pledge to go all the way, and we will do whatever it takes to find more forever homes for homeless pets in Houston! We had to change it up a little to fit our needs, but the sentiment is the same. We are going to GO BIG & FIND ‘EM A HOME, and we need YOUR help to do it!
