During the holidays, many kids ask for puppies and kittens as Christmas gifts. Even the adults get in on the action. This year, we ask you to consider one of the local shelters when thinking about adding new furry family members. One of the local shelters that I have always supported, the Animal Defense League of Texas (ADL as they’re known locally) has always gone above and beyond to help educate the public about San Antonio’s desire to become a “no-kill” city and do truly wonderful work. Whether you’re thinking about adopting a pet or even just want to make a charitable contribution, you can help this wonderful organization. They’re even running special events through December to help some of their animals find “forever homes.” So when your child says “I want a puppy for Christmas.,” please consider adoption from the Animal Defense League or any of the other shelter organizations in and around San Antonio. You can have a peek here if you want to train your dog and puppy. You’ll make the kids smile and save one more animal from the streets.
Full disclosure: one of our clients heads up the Animal Defense League, but that in no way prompted me to write this, in fact, I have written about them on other blogs and my personal Facebook page in the past many times. – Matt
