GT sloan thanks IG


You stepped up for homeless animals and answered our call for help in such a big way!

Houston Cares' supporters more than tripled our original goal of $3,000! We are so grateful for you. You make Houston Cares' animal rescue efforts possible. Thank you!

This adorable pup is Sloan. Your donation helps save animals with unique medical conditions like his. Sloan has megaesophagus. This means he has trouble swallowing food because his esophagus doesn't work right. As long as he eats sitting up, he can be a happy and healthy puppy. Check out this picture of Sloan in his new Bailey Chair!  #AdoptSloan

Please read more about Sloan and all our available dogs and cats and let us know if you see your new best friend.

#GivingTuesday is about unleashing the power of generosity and community to make a difference. All of you made that a reality!
