THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Priyanka Johri, founder of the Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary, was selected by The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce as a recipient of a fundraising event opportunity recently held at JerryBuilt Homegrown Burgers. Johri is also the Broker owner of Woodlands Eco Realty.

The Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary, an organization with pending non-profit status that includes a sanctuary for animals in need, was honored by being selected as a worthy charity by the Chamber in its annual nomination process. The event was held at JerryBuilt’s location on Lake Woodlands Drive. For the entire day, JerryBuilt donated a percentage of all dine-in, catering and to-go purchases to the sanctuary.

The Chamber contacted JerryBuilt’s manager and coordinated the event on behalf of Pure Mutts. As part of its community initiative, the Chamber also continues to take donations on behalf of the charity, and has contacted the local Eagle Scouts to perform volunteer work at the sanctuary.

Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary is a rescue shelter that resides on Johri’s two-acre land in The Woodlands. This private shelter provides special care to animals that are injured, abandoned or terminally ill.

“I enjoy the challenge of finding donation opportunities to provide a loving environment for these animals,” Johri said. “Thanks to the wonderful Community Relationship Team at the Chamber and outstanding members of the community such as JerryBuilt, we are able to invite the public to donate to this worthy cause.”

Johri anticipates hosting future fundraising events even as she continues to grow her real estate business ventures. Her brokerage firm, The Woodlands Eco Realty, donates 20 percent of its realtor fees/income to the sanctuary. “Each time clients buy, sell or lease homes using The Woodlands Eco Realty, they are helping these animals.”
