I’ve heard about a “Clear the Shelters” event and was wondering what that is? We are hoping to adopt a dog soon. With school about to start, this seems like a good opportunity to bring a dog into our family. Can you fill me in on this event and where we might be able to meet some adoptable pets?

The Children’s Museum of Houston will host adoptable pets in conjunction with this “Clear the Shelters” event. Stop by their booth at the museum and find out more about bringing a loving pet into your family.
You really won’t find a better opportunity to adopt that pet you’ve been wanting than the “Clear the Shelters” event. Our shelters are full of adoptable, loving animals–many of them even purebreds–who need a caring, responsible home. Pets adopted from shelters tend to be highly trainable, healthy and appreciate every loving touch and kind word you have for them. Make a difference in the life of a homeless animal on Saturday, Aug. 18!

Pets of the Week
Meet Dexter and Kona. This couple came into rescue with an obvious history of horrible abuse. Despite their pasts, they are both loving and gentle. They are both completely house trained and working hard on mastering their leash manners. While Dexter and Kona would really love to continue living together, they can be separated if necessary. They only ask to have another dog in their new home with them to keep them company. To learn more, go to www.scoutshonor.org.
