Rover Oaks brings Thanksgiving to CAP
The shelter animals at Citizens for Animal Protection in west Houston enjoyed a special Thanksgiving treat Nov. 20 from their friends at Rover Oaks Pet Resort.
The staff at Rover Oaks spent the weekend roasting turkeys at their Houston and Katy resorts and, to help celebrate Turkey Day, they hand-delivered the treat to the animals who are spending the holiday in the shelter, awaiting their forever homes.
In 2007, Rover Oaks began serving homemade Thanksgiving turkey to the dogs and cats staying at their pet resorts. Joy Lee and Steve Smith, co-founders of Rover Oaks Katy, then decided to expand the service seven years ago to include pets at the shelter.
Lee, a longtime volunteer for CAP, said, “When you see the loving care that our clients give their pet companions each day, it breaks your heart to know that thousands of wonderful shelter pets won’t enjoy that same happiness this Thanksgiving. We wanted to do something special for the pets at CAP and give them a holiday treat, too.”
The staff at Rover Oaks put a lot of effort and love into this annual project.
“It is so rewarding to be able to brighten the holidays for these loving animals,” said Amy Hoffman, resort manager at Rover Oaks Katy. “We strongly encourage everyone to visit the animals at CAP and consider adopting, volunteering or donating to this great organization.”
