When does a WAR benefit a local non profit entity like Pet Adoptions of Cuero? Well that’s what happened this Spring when the National Junior Honor Society at Cuero Junior High decided to make a penny “war” as their new Spring charity fundraiser. The challenge was on between the 6th, 7th and 8th grades. They set a goal and well surpassed it to provide needed funds for vet bills and repairs to the shelter. On hand making the presentation were NJHS ambassadors Bailey Morrow and Caitlyn Beigle along with NJHS co-sponsors Teonna Goldstein and Heather Stewart. Accepting on behalf of Pet Adoptions of Cuero was Linda Anzaldua. A very special thank you to all that participated so that the adoption and rescue organization can continue its goals of rehoming up to 300 pets per year.
Thank You GVEC
What a way to start off the New Year! GVEC created a special social media promotion in December to help 4 small town local pet shelters and rescues and Pet Adoptions of Cuero was one of the lucky recipients. Christine Pressley of GVEC stopped by to deliver a check for $1250.00 which has been earmarked to help with PAOC’s vet bills and well care expenses for the 25 dogs currently at the shelter. Proudly sharing in this exciting presentation were Paul and Nelda Huber, Christine Pressley of GVEC, Linda Anzaldua and Pat Kennedy. GVEC is another wonderful community minded business helping to take care of local non profits.
Junior Marketing Guru's at work in Cuero
What do you do when it is a winter day but it is soooo hot? You sell lemonade! Better yet - you make it a fundraiser for your favorite non profit – Pet Adoptions of Cuero. Special thanks go to this Jr. Board of Directors who had a preview day on their street. Then took it a step further the next day with a full scale marketing event on a major Cuero highway. We love the unique signage and “honest” art – “we are not good at art” – but they sure got their point across with multiple flavors to sell. Thank you to this enterprising team of Bennett Dickens, Riley Dickens, Nathan Taylor and Natalie Taylor for thinking of the homeless pets at the shelter.
Bissell Pet Foundation
Oh HAPPY DAY! Here at Pet Adoptions of Cuero when this pallet of dog food arrived courtesy of the Bissell Pet Foundation. It is such an honor when a small town non profit like our local shelter is recognized with such a major donation. PAOC was thrilled to receive this kind of support from the Bissell Pet Foundation Partners for Pets program. Checking out the “big haul “ of Purina Dry Dog Food are PAOC Summer teammates Konnor Sullivan and Elizabeth Gonzales along with Annie – a new potential adoptee.
Bissell Pet Foundation
YIPPEE -Bissell brings it again!!! Pet Adoptions of Cuero is in awe of the amazing support and donations being sent our way from the Bissell Corporation. This week PAOC received over 1500 pounds of cat box litter – which is always one of the most pricey purchases pet shelters have to incur. This “gift” was another segment of Bissell’s Partners for Pets program that helps small town non profit shelters to “survive” in tough times. Cathy Bissell is and always has been an advocate of support for homeless and sheltered dogs and cats. She is a leader in understanding the great service small town rescues handle daily to make a difference. Bissell is a company that not only produces first class cleaning, sweeping and maintenance products but also puts their funds into helping one of the “often forgotten” charities. We love BISSELL! Posing with the latest delivery are PAOC summer teammates – Elizabeth Gonzales and Konnor Sullivan and new arrival “Piper”.
The Boys Are Back
THE BOYS ARE BACK!!! Thanks to all the Gobbler Coaches for making arrangements to bring the Gobbler Football teammates to Pet Adoptions of Cuero this week. Over 20 players jumped in to help walk all the large and strong canines for a brisk morning exercise. The dogs really loved all the attention and it looked like some of the guys were already picking out their favorites – maybe some will be adopted? This CISD program is such a blessing for the non profit shelter and rescue and gives the student athletes a chance to show their community service spirit as well. The procession of players with 20+ canines along the shoulder of Highway 183 was really a traffic stopper parade. This team is not only winners on the football field but also the walkathon made for lots of happy, happy dogs.
