Animals staying at the Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) shelter had something special to be thankful for this holiday season thanks to their friends at Rover Oaks Pet Resort!  The staff at Rover Oaks spent the week roasting turkeys at their Houston and Katy resorts and, on the Tuesday before Turkey Day, they hand-delivered the tasty treat to the animals who are spending the holiday in the shelter, awaiting their forever homes.  The adoptable animals 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, and three years ago co-owners Joy Lee and Steve Smith decided to expand the service 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, co-owner of Rover Oaks Pet Resort.  "We strongly encourage everyone to visit the animals at CAP and consider adopting, volunteering or donating to this great organization."
