Paws and Claus Festival December 7th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Gleannloch Farms to be held at the Recreation Center. Our last big festival, which was in 2009, had over 500 participants and visitors.
The venue will be very similar to the last festival with food, raffle items, demonstrations, micro chipping and this year, photos with Santa in his sleigh. Our main goal is to help the rescue groups that have helped us in the past by having adoptable dogs for viewing and giving the community a fun event to attend and maybe do some Christmas shopping.
We are speaking with Dock Dogs of Houston, which is a water jumping and retrieving competition group that travels the world and Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club on attending our event.
Looking for vendors of all kinds, not just related to pets. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding being a vendor.
The Recreation Center is located at: 9420 Gleannloch Forest Drive, Spring 77379

The Whole Dog & Cat Journal’s reviews identify the hallmarks of a top dry dog & cat foods on a yearly basis.

Cancer is rampant in our pets these days, along with pre-mature kidney failure.
Some cancers may not be avoidable, due to genetics, and certain vaccines, but I do believe that some forms of Cancer come from the artificial ingredients in our pets foods such as Ethoxyquin, BHA, BHT and the artificial food colors and artificial flavor enhancers they add to our pets foods.
Ethoxyquin, BHA & BHT are not allowed in human food, but these harmful preservatives are still being used in some pet foods & treats.
We as consumers can make a choice to buy pet foods that do not use these ingredients, and all of the foods above, do not.
Please do your research, read the ingredients label thoroughly and know what you’re feeding your pets. Here’s to a very Healthy New Year for you and your pets!
Passionately caring for your babies!

Spay/Houston are holding a week-long offer to spay and neuter your pests at their facility in Greenspoint
The It’s Hip to Snip! Campaign will be available on the Houston, Texas Groupon Grassroots page beginning on Monday, July 23 and running through Sunday, July 29, 2012. Utilizing Groupon Grassroots’ collective action model, Groupon subscribers can pledge support for the It’s Hip to Snip! initiative in increments of $10.00, with each $10.00 providing funding for pet owners who cannot afford spay/neuter services. An anonymous donor is matching donations up to $5,000, so a $10.00 donation will benefit the clinic $20.00!
Houston’s animal shelters are overrun with unwanted puppies and kittens. Spay/Houston’s goal is to provide means for the average person to afford spay/neuter and basic vaccination services for pets. Though services are low cost, some simply cannot afford basic pet care.
