Reggie’s Holiday Letter To You!

Dear Friends,

It’s that time of year again. Family, friends (2, 3 and 4 legged), food and fun. To send this year out with a bang, I thought I would send a note to all of our TLC friends to say thanks to you all and to tell our story so far.  2013 has been a whirlwind of accomplishments!

 My Mom (Deana Sellens) named me the “CCO” Chief Canine Officer of a charity established in September 2012 named Texas Litter Control that would offer an affordable, professional and effective solution to pet overpopulation!  By mid-October, we broke ground and had the TLC website up and running informing people of our mission and keeping them up to date with clinic progress.

 The Clinic is here!

We started the New Year with a momentum like no other and Texas Litter Control was officially opened on February 5th with lots of help from animal welfare supporters in Houston.

 Now when you are a little guy like me with so much responsibility, you see what goes on around you from a different (lower to the ground) perspective!  Larry is the guy to talk to when you visit the clinic.  Not your average tech Larry is TLC’s IT guy and he always has a paw free for handyman work.

 On April 13th the clinic performed its 1000th sterilization and I had to laugh thinking of how Zach, TLC’s first volunteer (now full time Vet Technician) had to duck to miss hitting his head on the exit signs of the clinic!  1,000 runs through the clinic is a whole lot of ducking!  TLC’s number 1 Go-To Girl is Vanessa, right out of school she put her knowledge, efficiency and love for animals to work with a smile on her face all while following the 1pm belly rub protocol.

 The best part of my job though is the community outreach.  It is going to amazing events like Kingwood Barkfest, Humble Adopt-a-thon and Macy’s Shop for a Cause that make it all worthwhile.  My Mom and Candice get so jealous because I get all the attention and raise all of the money because of my famous paw wave and clever catch phrase, “Reggie says, Neuter is Cuter!”

Whether we are providing 7 dollar microchips for a peanut butter donation to assist Montgomery County Food Bank or partnering with people like the Homeless Pet Placement League, Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project, ArkCharities, and Precinct 4 Commissioner, Ed Rinehart to bring you innovative vet care with Zueterin and free surgery days, we are always here for you!

Texas Litter Control has committed itself to ending the cycle of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens from entering our community’s shelters.  In November 2013 we performed our 4000th sterilization.  As a community, let’s make sure that we focus on giving gifts vs. exchanging gifts this busy shopping season.  Giving with Reggie this season ensures you are not only reaching our community but providing Help, Hope and Compassion for people and pets in need.

 Have a blessed holiday season and an awesome 2014!

Yours truly,  

Reggie

TEXAS LITTER CONTROL PARTNERS WITH HOMELESS PET PLACEMENT LEAGUE AND MONTGOMERY COUNTY SPAY NEUTER PROJECT TO OFFER FREE SPAY AND NEUTER SERVICES FOR CATS

SPRING, Texas, October 25, 2013 – Texas Litter Control, the Homeless Pet Placement League (HPPL) and the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project (MCSNP) are partnering to provide free spay and neuter services for cats.  On November 10, 2013, the “Fix a Feline for Free” Day will take place at the Texas Litter Control clinic.  50 cats will be altered for people who are on public assistance.  Cat owners who are on disability, Social Security, unemployment, or food stamps will be eligible to participate.  These free services are underwritten by a grant from Houston’s PETSET to the Homeless Pet Placement League of Houston, the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project and from generous private donors to the Texas Litter Control clinic.

Pet owners who qualify simply need to call the Texas Litter Control clinic to book an appointment for November 10th.  Cats must weigh at least 3 pounds.  Tame cats need to be in a carrier and feral (wild) cats need to come in traps.  Intake will be between 7:00am and 8:00am.  Pick up times will be assigned as cats are dropped off.  There is a limit of 2 cats per household and proof of public assistance must be provided at check in.

“We enjoy working with HPPL and the Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project on a regular basis for sponsored days,” explains Deana Sellens, Executive Director of Texas Litter Control.  “So many people cannot afford even our low cost services.  Being able to provide free services is the key to keeping unwanted litters out of our local shelters.”

Citizens who cannot participate or do not own a cat can still help by volunteering at the clinic as well as at offsite events for both Texas Litter Control, HPPL or MCSNP.   For more information on these organizations and what you can do, visit www.texaslittercontrol.orgwww.hppl.org  or  www.mcsnp.org .

Texas Litter Control is a not for profit, low cost spay/neuter and wellness clinic for cats and dogs.  TLC is open Monday through Saturday by appointment for surgery and from 9am to 3pm Thursday through Saturday or vaccinations wellness services.  The TLC clinic could not exist without the generosity of Petroleum Wholesale. Petroleum Wholesale provides the space for TLC clinic as a service to the community.  The clinic is located adjacent to Petroleum Wholesale’s Texaco station at the Rayford/Sawdust exit on the west side of Interstate 45 just south of the Woodlands at 150 Pruitt Road #H, Spring 77380.  Petroleum Wholesale has been supporting the rescue of dogs and other companion animals for nearly two decades.

HPPL, the Homeless Pet Placement League, is a local, non profit animal welfare organization that provides for the rehabilitation and permanent placement of stray and abandoned dogs and cats.  Working with the foster home concept, HPPL is able to help save animals that would not fit the criteria for shelter placement.

The Montgomery County Spay Neuter Project is a local not for profit organization that fundraises and provides affordable spay neuter services to residents of Montgomery and surrounding counties.

MICRO-CHIP YOUR PET FOR $7 AND HELP THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY FOOD BANK BUDDY BACKPACK FOOD DRIVE!

SPRING, Texas, August 9, 2013 – Texas Litter Control is supporting the Montgomery County Food Bank for their 2013 Buddy Backpack Food Drive.  From August 15-September 15, 2013, TLC will be offering $7 micro-chipping for cats and dogs to customers who donate 2 small jars of peanut butter or a $10 check donation to the Montgomery County Food Bank’s Buddy Backpack Food Drive.  The Buddy Backpack Program was designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when school resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations.

“We are so excited to be helping the Montgomery County Food Bank while we are raising awareness about micro-chipping,” explains Deana Sellens, Executive Director of Texas Litter Control.  “We are in the middle of hurricane season.  In a disaster, micro-chips are the best way to get your pet back.  Helping pets and helping kiddos!  What could get better than that!”

 Texas Litter Control usually charges $25 for micro-chipping.  They use the DataMars chips which are fully registered for life.  There are no hidden fees!  Micro-chipping pets is especially important in our region of Texas.  During natural disasters such as hurricanes, many pets are displaced from their homes.  Collars are lost and when animals are picked up, those with micro-chips are returned to their owners first.  Even without natural disasters, 1 out of every 3 pets will become lost at some point.  All of our local shelters in Montgomery and Harris counties are scanning for micro-chips.  Micro-chipping dogs increases their chances of getting back to their owners over 200%, micro-chipping cats increases their chances more than 2000%!

If you don’t need a micro-chip for your pet, but would still like to help out, bring your peanut butter donation or check made payable to the Montgomery County Food Bank to the Texas Litter Control clinic.  A $10 donation to the Montgomery County Food Bank buys 35 meals for kids!  The top 5 items on their most needed list is peanut butter, canned meats (tuna, chicken, ham, etc.), chicken noodle soup, canned pasta (ravioli, spaghetti), and pork and beans.
