Two Adoptions Away from Number 2010

WHO: Homeless Cats and Dogs and Volunteers of Highland Village Adoption Center

WHAT:  Adoption #2010 expected this weekend for Highland Village Adoption Center

WHERE: 4056 Westheimer Road, Highland Village, next to Williams Sonoma

WHEN: Saturday, August 28 or Sunday, August 29

WHY: Highland Village Adoption Center (HVAC) is only two cats or dogs away from its 2,010 adoption. The organization is confident that on either Saturday, August 28 or Sunday, August 29, the magic number – 2010 – will be realized with the adoption of a homeless cat or dog by a qualified individual.   The organization got its start in 2007 when Highland Village, one of Houston’s most popular shopping landmarks, was approached and immediately agreed to donate rent-free space for the effort. With this support, the organizers set a goal of adopting 90 dogs and cats in nine days and were amazed when they were able to find new homes for 242 pets during the three weekends HVAC was open. The success has continued and now adoption number 2,010 is only two animals away.

2010 Adoption Celebration - Saturday, August 28 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. at HVAC 4056 Westheimer Road in Highland Village

Refreshments for volunteers – treats for the furry friends
