Houston Helps: Buster’s Friends
Houston is a generous city. In unearthing and seeking out Houston’s untold story, we figured telling of its charitable nature needed to be part of this ever growing tale. That being said, here’s another opportunity to give back to this city. Love Houston. Help Houston.
Buster’s Friends, Inc is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned animals in the City of Houston. They provide medical care in the form of vaccinations, testing, spay/neuter services to all animals prior to adopting them into loving homes.
Buster’s Friends was created in memory of Jennifer Fields. Jennifer spent countless hours rescuing and fostering hundreds of Houston’s homeless animals prior to losing her battle to cancer in May 2009.
As a tribute to Jennifer and her dedication, we named the group after her beloved dog Buster, who made the journey to the Rainbow Bridge in August 2008.
DON’T FORGET TO GO VISIT THEM THIS SATURDAY AS THEY CELEBRATE THE OPENING OF THEIR NEW LOCATION IN UPPER KIRBY.
“One of Houston’s favorite pet adoption organizations has been uprooted and found a new home in the brand new West Ave. complex. On the second floor, across from Eddie V’s, you’ll find Buster’s Friends and the open house that celebrates their new roots. There will be some apps, bubbly, and, most importantly, your new best friend ready to adopt and bring home. Bring those pens, people. Adoption paperwork doesn’t sign itself.” — The Look Ahead 5.11.11
