We are so excited to announce our January/February Double issue feature story – Houston Mascots to the Rescue!

Pets add so much joy to our lives, and what could be more joyous than giving a homeless pet a place to call home forever? At PetTalk, we believe adopting a pet and providing a safe, loving, respectful future is a valuable endeavor and it’s also FUN! So let’s have some FUN in 2023 and if you are looking to add a furry friend to the family, then look no further than the many shelters and rescue groups that Houston has to offer. 

To add to the FUN of showing off a little sampling of animals who are looking for a home, we invited Houston’s professional mascots from the Texans, Rockets, Astros, Dynamo, Dash, Sabercats, and Space Cowboys,  as well as the University of Houston mascots, to join us in highlighting the plight of homeless animals and to advocate for adoption. Or, if adopting isn’t possible for you, all of our shelters and rescues need volunteers, fosters and donations. There is always a way to help and if 2023 finds you looking for purpose, then we’ve got one for you!

All of the mascots that joined us for our photoshoots at Houston SPCA and Houston Humane Society were so gracious with their time. They have very hectic schedules so we are very thankful to the mascots and their handlers for taking the time to make this FUN feature story and we hope you enjoy learning more about each mascot as well as Houston’s adoptable pets and resources.
