Houston Endowment Doubles Down on Spay-Neuter
Foundation Funds Houston Mobile Clinic Expansion of Service

Houston Endowment provides 3 year $85k grant to Houston mobile clinic.

The Houston Endowment has doubled down on saving the city’s dogs and cats by awarding SNAP a three-year grant of $85,000 per year to support mobile clinic operations. This amount represents a base grant of $50,000 per year plus an additional $35,000 per year to expand services in the Houston area. The additional funds will be used to increase staffing so that the clinic can add days to its monthly operating schedule. The extra funding was awarded by the endowment in recognition of the importance of fighting animal overpopulation and the value of spay-neuter in accomplishing that objective. Full story.

Hello Darlings,

Some people turn into werewolves when there is a full moon. Well, not really, but there are plenty of people who think a full moon evokes strange behavior in both man and his furry companions. What does science have to say about it? Is there a really any measurable effect? Read this month's letter to find out.

Madame AstroCat

Dear Readers,
What descriptive words come to mind when you think of the feline breed? Does the word "graceful" pop into your head? What about the word "athletic"? Perhaps both? Remarkably, both words are appropriate and both address the amazing physical attributes of the species Felix catus. Find out more about the bodies of kitties in this month's top ten list.
