Another Great Story From Houston’s Corridor of Cruelty – A Big Thank You To Those Saving These Animals!

This is a letter regarding Deborah Hoffman, founder of Corridor Rescue, a rescue group that saves abandoned and sick animals from an area of Houston dubbed The Corridor of Cruelty. Deborah and her team of volunteers, veterinarians, etc. save many injured animals that have suffered greatly. What a blessing to have such big hearts in our community. If you can possibly help them, they would love the assistance!!
