Richardson, TX, November 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- This Holiday Season, The Velvet Snout, LLC Canine Adventure Center, in Richardson, TX is doubling their efforts to help by offering more opportunities to help those in need by joining the Save-A-Snout Pet Adoption Tree with the Hungry Snout Pet Food Donation Program. So now, both needy and adoptable pets and families that are facing economic difficulties with feeding their pets will have an opportunity for a much brighter holiday.
The Velvet Snout General Manager Diana Hall says, “In some ways, we have a double edged sword here. First, we have far too many homeless pets waiting for a chance at a new life. And second, we have family pets that are being turned into our local shelters on a daily basis, because many families feel they simply have little choice but to choose between feeding their families or their pets. This is our 3rd year for both programs, and although the Hungry Snout Program runs all year, we’ve noticed a huge drop in donations. The Save-A-Snout Tree offers great hope to some of the many animals that are waiting for their forever homes. If you cannot adopt, please consider sponsoring a needy pet. We’re just hoping that we can offer more ways that folks can help spread some holiday cheer by either donating a bag of food to help a needy family, or helping a needy pet through adoption or sponsorship.”
Anyone who stops by The Velvet Snout and donates a new bag of pet food will be given a certificate for a free day of doggie daycare as our way of saying thank you. The North Texas Food Bank has agreed to help get those donations to the people that need it. The Pet Adoption Tree will be on display from November 25th to January 2nd. Owner Laura Couch says, “The Spirit of the Holidays is really about giving back and helping others who sometimes, are simply victims of circumstance. Our Holiday wish this year is that those who can help will help. Sometimes, even the smallest of gestures can make the biggest difference in the lives of others.”
