Houston, TX –  Since so many animal lovers stated that they would attend, Houston Voters For Companion Animals and No Kill Houston have organized a Candidate Forum regarding animal sheltering issues in Houston.  

There are five kill shelters in the Houston area that, together, kill 80,000 pets every year.  Houston’s taxpayer funded animal control facility (BARC) killed more than 10,000 pets in 2014 alone.  Conversely, there are hundreds of Open Admission, shelters/communities who have ended the killing of shelter pets.  They have  implemented the No Kill model of sheltering in order to save all healthy and treatable shelter pets.  

Animal lovers in Houston are tired of the large numbers of pets being killed year after year, and they are frustrated with the minuscule increases in Save Rates at BARC each year; especially when there are life saving alternatives which have been proven to dramatically increase life saving in a short amount of time.  

We are providing this opportunity for animal lovers to hear the candidates plans to end shelter pet killing in Houston, if any. 

The Forum will take place on September 29th at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Road,  Houston, TX 77055.

The Forum will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm.   Social Networking will begin at 6:30 pm in which attendees are welcome to speak to the candidates in person. 

All the details are at the link below.  

The Forum is FREE, but we are asking the people who want to attend to please REGISTER so that we can make sure that we have an accurate head count and enough seats.  

Our Poll indicated that over 565 people said that they would like to attend this type of event so it may be a packed house.
