Feels Good Man
There is no better feeling in the winter than waking up with two doggies and a kitty or two huddled up against you warming you up; there’s no better feeling in the summer than laughing at your doggies as they chase the squirrels up the tree inthe back yard.
Considering the fact that blood pressure medication can cost you hundreds of dollars a month, why not get the same effect from your pets for free? Well that is not quite true. Vet bills are not cheap and I wish more people would understand that before adopting or buying a pet with the assumption that they cost little or no money to care for. But that is for another day.
I want to share the good news that I received in my mail box this morning. In honor of Veterans Day the Houston SPCA is adopting all dogs, cats, and small mammals for only $11. Here is a link to the story on their website.
Some people may have the misconception that rescued animals or somehow less intelligent, less healthy, and less desirable than animals purchased from a breeder or store, but I am here to tell you that nothing could be farther from the truth.
But don’t take my word for it. Go on down to the SPCA and see for yourself!
The Houston SPCA celebrates Veterans Day this weekend with an adoption special aimed at saving the lives of homeless animals in our community. The goal is to place 111 animals into loving new homes from Friday 11/11/11 through Sunday 11/13/11 during the “All American VeteransDay Adoption Extravaganza.”
There are hundreds of freedom-loving furry friends waiting for a family at the Houston SPCA. Visit the shelter and choose the right one for your family for only $11.00*. The adoption fee* will be waived completely for ALL veterans in honor of Veterans Day.
Each canine and feline adoption package is valued at over $400 and includes:
- A health evaluation, initial vaccinations and rabies vaccinations for felines three months and older;
- Spay / neuter surgery;
- Microchipping with free lifetime registration;
- A complimentary overall wellness examination (within five days after adoption) and complimentary 14-day follow-up care for certain conditions, provided by VCA Animal Hospitals to give your pet the very best in medical care;
- One bag of cat food courtesy of Hill’s Science Diet;
- 30 days of pet insurance coverage through Shelter Care;
- And, of course, a friend for life!
For an additional $25, FeLV/FIV testing is available to all felines at the time of adoption from the Houston SPCA.
The Houston SPCA is the only local shelter open seven days a week with the most convenient evening and weekend hours to make choosing the adoption option as easy possible. Visit today, Monday through Friday from 11 am to 7 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.
*Restrictions apply. Adopters must be approved and the discounted adoption fee does not apply to horses, farm animals or dogs and puppies in the Spot Peabody Small Dog and Puppy room.
