Baili's Corner:

Tips, products and useful information for your 4 legged friends.

The euthanizing of animals has reached an appalling level, here in Houston and many other communities around the country. The irresponsible disposal of animals contributes to the large feral dog and cat populations in our city,

resulting in even more unwanted animals.

Local rescue groups help to recover, rehabilitate and foster or adopt many of these strays, the following is a list of those groups, which can be contacted when animals need assistance.

 

Thanx to Houston Area Dog Rescue (HADR.com) for the information provided below.
