Texas Litter Control is always working on projects to slow down the numbers of animals going into our shelters. Let's face it, once they go in, it is really damage control. What if a little prevention is the missing piece of the puzzle?
Here are a few of the projects in the pipeline...
Phase 1 "The Move": Texas Litter Control is moving out of our little 800 square foot FEMA trailer and into a building. This will allow us to increase our spay/neuter surgeries by 3,000 a year. - DONE!!! Completed 7/15/15
Real Texans Don't Litter.....
Spay & Neuter Your Pets!
Phase 2 "Get TLC Mobile": We are looking at mobile options to get deeper into the community. We are fund-raising to purchase a MASH unit. - DONE!!! Completed May 2017 TLC is now partnering with the Magnolia School District to bring spay/neuter services deeper into the community. This project is currently on hold because of the effects of Hurricane Harvey. We will keep you posted.
Phase 3 "Let's get out to Magnolia": TLC is opening a high volume spay/neuter clinic at the AAR animal shelter in Magnolia beginning 1/20/18.
Pet Owner Hotline
HelpMeKeepMyPet.com is a bit of a work in progress. We have the website up and we are looking for volunteers. The goal is to offer advice and resources to those thinking about surrendering their pet to a shelter.
We are collecting cat and dog food for people needing assistance. Many people contact us thinking they need to give up their pets because they hit a rough patch and can't afford to feed them. Sometimes it just takes a couple of bags of food to get someone through a bad time. Losing a pet is hard enough, but losing your job and having to give up your pet is the worst!
San Antonio and other communities have implemented a huge stray cat program where cats who are turned into the shelter are fixed and returned to the community. We first need to update the ordinances in Harris and Montgomery Counties. You will see lots more on this shortly! - MONTGOMERY COUNTY - DONE! PILOT PROGRAM STARTED IN HARRIS COUNTY!
