The McCullough Foundation, of Houston, recognized The Woodlands Dog Park Club this week with a $15,000 donation to be used in the Partnership for Paws Vaccination/Spay & Neuter Clinics that the Club hosts in cooperation with the Montgomery County Animal Shelter and County Commissioners. In 2008 the Partnership for Paws “Love Your Pets” outreach program vaccinated more than 1000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered 500.
The Partnership for Paws clinics offer free on-site vaccinations to the public’s dogs and cats and are held throughout the year in various communities (representing the four precincts) around Montgomery County.
Recently the Montgomery County Animal Shelter on SH 242 at the north end of The Woodlands began a major upgrade and expansion of its facility. Included in this project is a revamping of the shelter’s Low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.
Local non-profit, The Woodlands Dog Park Club, a long time supporter of the shelter’s no-kill initiatives, held a fundraiser to raise money to assist with improvements at the clinic. Hometown Hounds & Cool Cats offered the public a chance to have their pets’ likeness painted on a large dog park mural in the clinic’s new lobby. Nationally renowned, New Orleans artist, Jim Tweedy, painted the animals’ likenesses and noted Conroe artist, Joe Kolb, painted the backdrop.
