Click to enter or vote!

Enter your dog or cat in the Tails of Two Cities t-shirt contest, and your furry friend could become a star! Just get your family and friends to visit the contest website and vote for your animal. The animals that earn the most votes will win great grand prize packages and get to model for the next SNAP t-shirt! There will be dog and cat winners from both Houston and San Antonio as well as a Judge's Choice winner. That’s five grand prize winners (and five adorable t-shirt models) in all! There will also be ten runners up.

Please note that the photo submitted will not appear on the t-shirt. A professional photographer will take a new photo of the winning animals to be used in the t-shirt design.

Records Set Thanks to You
Your Gifts Help SNAP Clinics Set New Records in March

This happy pup was sterilized thanks in part to your gifts!

Rarely a day passes that a mobile clinic client doesn’t tell us how s/he could not afford to protect his or her animals’ health or prevent them from having unwanted offspring if it were not for SNAP, but it is not SNAP who makes this possible. It is you.

What have your donations and volunteer hours to SNAP accomplished lately? They helped SNAP to sterilize and provide wellness services for a record number of animals in the month of March. Our clinics performed 3,186 surgeries in March. Full story.


Office Effects Acts to Cause an EFFECT
Office Supply Firm Creates Fundraising Initiative Benefiting SNAP and Others

Office Effects charity initiative seeks to Cause an EFFECT!

If you can imagine a fundraising program that would allow businesses to support SNAP and other nonprofits just by doing something they already do, then you would have a pretty good idea what the friendly folks at Office Effects, Inc., have created. Office Effects’ new initiative, Cause an EFFECT, is doing just that and making the world a better place one transaction at a time! Full story.


LIFE+DOG Party Benefits SNAP
Houston Magazine Covers Modern Living with Man’s Best Friend

Hello Darlings,

Would you leave your human family to go off and live with the newly wedded Prince William and Kate Middleton of the British royal family? This month's letter is from a dog who thinks she would. She deserves a proper scolding, and I give her one. I then give a brief overview of the dog breeds that have occupied the royal palaces of several countries through the ages and give my opinion on what kind of dog the future king and queen of Great Britain should have. Can you guess what I picked?

Employee Groups Strive So Animals Can Thrive
United Space Alliance and U.S. Bank Groups Give Back

USA logo and U.S. Bank logo

Employees at United Space Alliance (USA) and U.S. Bank have recently shown that they care about the animals that live in our communities and are more than ready to demonstrate that concern. Workers at the two companies recently donated a total of $380.00 between them in support of SNAP efforts to fight animal overpopulation. The employees at USA held its fifth annual Go Orange for Animals day, while employees at U.S. Bank held a weight loss competition. Full story.

Madame AstroCat

Dear Readers,
Would it shock you to know that I am not the first "astro" cat? Who was my predecessor and how did she become the first astro cat? That's a question for the history books, so lets crack one open and learn something about feline history. We start in prehistoric times and work our way through to contemporary cats of historical note in this month's top ten list. 
Full story.
