Some Success On The Pet-Adoption Front
More than 300 pets found new homes over the weekend -- not to mention that $300,000 was raised in pledges -- as the Houston SPCA enjoyed a big success with its annual telethon.
"Hours before the live broadcast (on Channel 39), the parking lot at the Houston SPCA was at capacity, leaving a line of parked cars that stretched into the street," says spokesperson Meera Nandlal.
Great, SPCA -- block traffic like you don't care.
The Houston SPCA wants to warm the cockles of your heart by announcing that "Chance," a dog who's been in the shelter for 10 months, "got adopted into a great home where he is getting the 'chance' he deserves."
Consider our cockles warmed.
Whether you're a pet person or not, the event was a big home run fin the sometimes struggling effort to deal with Houston's abandoned animals. So, congratulations.
