Harlingen, Texas – The Humane Society of Harlingen’s cat spaces are completely full. Yesterday, someone reached out to HSH looking for help rehoming 13 cats, as their living space was increasingly unsafe and unsustainable. HSH answered the call, and this morning HSH took in all 13 cats. HSH is asking the community to help us find foster or forever homes for our feline friends!
All adoption fees are completely waived. All adopted pets will go home up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, on preventatives for fleas/ticks/heartworms, microchipped and either already spayed/neutered, or with an appointment to spay/neuter at no cost to the adoptive family.
Blankets for Veterans, a non-profit organization created by a 17-yr-old in Wisconsin, has made it to a local Valley Winter Texan park this season. Park resident Kathy Hanson is the proud grandmother of Aubree Leitermann, the founder of the organization. Leitermann, who visited Heier recently, was able to give some of the blankets that were made by Heier, and others, to Veterans in the park.
Speaking of Leitermann, Hanson says she has always been interested in how people were making big differences doing small, simple good deeds.
