[ARCHIVED] Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

Animal shelters are vital for communities to protect, care for, and help control the pet population. Plus, they are a perfect place to find a new friend! Baytown’s Animal Services and Adoption Center isn’t any different. This week we are recognizing our local facility while celebrating National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.

There are several ways to celebrate:

  • Adopt a Shelter Pet

  Saves a life while changing the life of the next shelter animal.

  • Become a Foster

  Typically, this last weeks or months, but the care provided changes a pet’s life forever.

  • Volunteer

  Become a part of the lifesaving work our shelter provides.

  • Donate

  Monetary and non-monetary donations greatly impact our shelter.

  • Be a Responsible Pet Owner

  Keep your pet spayed/neutered and microchipped. 

  • Spread the Word

  Share information about the shelter with the community. Let your friends know about events and fundraisers. You never know who is looking to help a pet or wanting a new friend to take home.

There are several groups using Shelter Appreciation Week to make a difference. Memorial High School students are visiting the shelter this week to volunteer and participate in activities. On Friday, Chevron Phillips employees will be helping with cleaning the shelter and nurturing the animals. Then on Saturday, Faith Family Church will clean and play with the animals as well.

To learn more about how you can help, call 281-422-7600 or visit the new facilities at 705 N. Robert Lanier Drive.
