IT'S ABOUT THEIR LIVES
It’s estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of homeless dogs and cats wandering the streets of Houston. In addition to the suffering homeless animals endure, the costs to our community are staggering. In some neighborhoods, children are afraid to go outside or to walk to school because they fear being attacked by a stray dog. Many of the elderly are also fearful and are prisoners in their own homes.
THE PROBLEM IS SOLVABLE.
AND YOU CAN HELP.
Through funding from individuals, corporate sponsors and with the cooperation of local governments, we believe the problem of animal homelessness is solvable. Through our Partnerships, Research, Events and Grants, we are already helping tens of thousands of homeless pets avoid being killed every year by placing them in new, loving homes. With your help, we can increase awareness of the problem, encourage our elected officials to get more involved, and most of all, raise the funds needed to protect the animals and solve the problem.
WE CAN, AND MUST,
Only 10% of animals received in U.S. shelters are spayed or neutered. Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized because shelters are overcrowded, and there are not enough adopters, fosters and rescues.
If you’ve witnessed an act of animal cruelty or neglect, contact the Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce at 832.927.PAWS or at 927paws.org. The Taskforce was formed with the primary goal of streamlining the process of where and how animal cruelty can be reported in the Greater Houston Area.
