SPRING, TX -- Texas Litter Control has received a $75,000 grant from PetSmart Charities to help prepare more homeless pets in the greater Houston area for adoption. Some five million pets make their way into shelters each year in the U.S. With the help of this grant, the organization will offer veterinary services to prepare animals for adoption into permanent homes and transportation of animals from overburdened municipal shelters to adoption events.

PetSmart Charities Adoption Prep Grants allow former stray cats like Walter to start new lives in loving homes happy and healthy. Walter's new family says, 'When we brought our new puppy to Texas Litter Control to be fixed, we had the pleasure of meeting Walter, a handsome grey tabby cat, in the lobby. I got to pet him and talk to him and fell in love. We didn't make moves to adopt him yet because we wanted to give the new puppy a chance to adapt to his new home. When we brought our cat in a few months later, we found out Walter was still there! We were shocked, sad that he hadn't been adopted yet, but excited to be able to bring him home because we were still in love with him. We made moves as quickly as possible. Autumn from Texas Litter Control was very helpful, and forthcoming about Walter's history. Walter is FIV positive, and we were told exactly how to best care for Walter and give him his best, long life. Walter has become a big part of our lives. He loves to cuddle with our kids, and even likes playing with the dogs. He's a big snuggler, and bed jumps every night. We adore him so much. Thank you, Autumn and Texas Litter Control!'

'WE LOVE PETSMART AND PETSMART CHARITIES! PetSmart Charities Adoption Prep Grants have helped both TLC and the community like nothing else in the adoption realm. It shows the community that groups can work together to make a bigger impact and it pays to work together,' said Executive Director, Deana Love of Texas Litter Control.

“Pets in shelters across the country are experiencing longer stays,” said Heidi Marston, director of pet placement initiatives at PetSmart Charities. “Our longtime partnership with Texas Litter Control is a valuable one, and we’re proud to support the critical work they’re doing. Together, we ensure more adoptable pets receive the preventative care they need to thrive, and that others enjoy increased opportunities to find loving homes, faster.”
