Howard is a 3-year-old gentle and calm American Blue Heeler mix looking for his forever home. Christine Pixley with Texas Humane Heroes brought our pet of the week by and says he’s good on a leash and great with people. She also told us some ways we can help homeless animals this season. When you adopt a dog or cat in December, you’ll also received a stocking of goodies to use around town. It’s a win win! And for the person who has everything on your holiday shopping list, how about sponsoring a kennel in their honor? There are also opportunities to foster a dog for Christmas, giving them a chance to get out of the shelter for a few days and enjoy the holiday in a warm and loving home.
