I started volunteer work with the HHS in about 1996 after losing a dog to cancer. I quickly became friends with the executive director. Over the years I've done work with them on different occasions for fundraising events and office work. I work for a non-profit foundation that firmly believes, as I do in the Mission of HHS. Their staff is very dedicated to their cause, and to the volunteers who mean so much to their every day operations. Without them they could not function as well. As far as I'm concerned they are the best animal welfare organization in Houston. Recently I adopted an addition to my family, after waiting for 16 months after I lost a lab/retriever mix to bone cancer. I was a difficult decision, but I had been watching the website and saw a black lab. I adopted her and about a week later she became deathly ill with some kind of upper respiratory infection. After 5 days in a row of driving to the HHS Wellness Clinic and back, fluids, strong antibiotics, B-12 shots, and nutrients and then 2 more trips, she is a happy, healthy dog. I thought I was going to lose her, but with the help of the vet and his staff, she's healthy and never lets me out of her sight. Words can never express my gratitude to them.
