HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Following a tradition that began in 2007, staff members from the Houston and Katy Rover Oaks Pet Resort locations spent the weekend roasting turkeys that were delivered and served to cats and dogs at the Citizens for Animal Protection shelter where the pets are waiting for permanent homes.
The dogs and cats, available to be adopted, enjoyed their meal and are looking forward to future meals in homes with forever families.
"When you see the loving care that our clients give their pet companions each day, it breaks your heart to know that thousands of wonderful shelter pets won’t enjoy that same happiness this Thanksgiving," says Rover Oaks Pet Resort Katy co-founder Joy Lee, who has also served as a CAP volunteer for many years. "We wanted to do something special for the pets at CAP and give them a holiday treat too.” "It is so rewarding to be able to brighten the holidays for these loving animals,” said Amy Hoffman, resort manager at Rover Oaks in Katy. “We strongly encourage everyone to visit the animals at CAP and consider adopting, volunteering or donating to this great organization.”
