More About Houston Pets Alive

Houston Pets Alive! (HPA!) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping make Houston No-Kill. They empower and link the animal rescue community. HPA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by a woman who spent over a decade in rescue with a never ending supply of animals. She knew that independent rescue was not going to solve the problem. The solution is a comprehensive plan that includes
(1) Pull/ vet/ adopt animals from the euthanasia list
(2) High volume spay/ neuter
(3) Education about positive pet ownership and the importance of spay/ neuter
(4) Political advocacy- some laws need changing, some laws need enforcing and some laws need to be dropped
All while marketing two overarching themes, which are: (1) rescue has the animal you’re looking for; and (2) Doing what is right is vital to our community.
In addition to accomplishing the above four goals using the overarching marketing themes, HPA! is creating an alliance with other rescue and advocacy groups. Our voice is louder and stronger together. To learn more about the alliance, email Andrea@houstonpetsalive.org.
