For Homeless Pets at Citizens for Animal Protection

The shelter animals at Citizens for Animal protection got to enjoy a special Thanksgiving treat from their friends over at Rover Oaks Pet Resort! The animal-loving staff at Rover Oaks spent the week roasting turkeys at their Houston and Katy resorts and hand-delivered the tasty treat to the animals who are spending the holiday in the shelter, awaiting their forever homes. The adoptable dogs and cats enjoyed their meal and are ready for you to come and meet them and their furry friends, all of whom would be most thankful for a happy, safe and loving home for the holidays!

In 2007, Rover Oaks began serving homemade Thanksgiving turkey to the dogs and cats staying at their pet resorts. Joy Lee and Steve Smith, co-founders of Rover Oaks Katy, then decided to expand the service five years ago to include pets at the shelter. Lee, a long-time volunteer for CAP, says, “When you see the loving care that our clients give their pet companions each day, it breaks your heart to know that thousands of wonderful shelter pets won’t enjoy that same happiness this Thanksgiving. We wanted to do something special for the pets at CAP and give them a holiday treat too.”

The staff at Rover Oaks put a lot of effort and love into this annual project. “It is so rewarding to be able to brighten the holidays for these loving animals,” said Steve Smith. “We strongly encourage everyone to visit the animals at CAP and consider adopting, volunteering or donating to this great organization.”

Since opening in 2006, Lee and the staff at the Katy facility have helped CAP find homes for hundreds of dogs, many receiving full makeovers and, in some cases, training to help prepare them for a successful adoption. View a full album of the special event here.
