Love Your Pet Month

Advocating Responsible Pet Ownership in the Community

Love Your Pet GraphicCouncil Member Karla Cisneros invites you to be part of her annual Love Your Pet initiative targeting Houston and Harris County, a project which that includes a series of events and opportunities during the month of February in conjunction with the annual, international World Spay Month. Pet overpopulation is a serious public health, public safety and quality of life concern for many Houstonians. We have too many stray dogs and cats on our streets, and shelters and rescue organizations are overburdened.

Help in spreading the message on the important reasons to spay and neuter: Your pet will be less likely to wander or be aggressive; spayed/neutered pets reduce animal overpopulation; your pet will be healthier, happier and have a longer life.
