FMCTAS Takes Show on the Road

Woodlands Pavilion & Montgomery County Animal Shelter Maroon 5

Sandra Hanson, FMCTAS director, shares the love with "Blackie," a young German Shepherd mix.

At the Maroon 5 concert, once again the Friends of Montgomery County Texas Animal Shelter were on site trying to find good homes for good pets. Spoke with Sandra Hanson, the FMCTAS director, and she said she thought she was ‘marooned’ on another planet the night before at the Pavilion…the night the Houston Symphony performed the “Hocus Pocus Pops” concert. With hundreds of families on the premises, she said only one puppy was adopted, and no donations were collected. The demographics at the Maroon 5 concert were radically different, but every puppy found a new home and donations were up.

The Petfest in Old Town Spring was a much better venue for the FMCTAS this past weekend, as animal lovers typically flock to this event. Dogs and many cats were adopted at the event as good weather prevailed, enabling a large turnout. Hanson said they still have many good animals that need a home, even fostering a pet would be a tremendous help for the burgeoning animal shelter. If you can’t take a pet into your home, the FMCTAS can always use any spare change for the staggering vet bills, medicine, and pet food. The FMCTAS makes it convenient to make donations. Visit their website at www.fmctas.org You can either mail in a donation, or click on the “Donate” button to use a major credit card, bank card, or PayPal. There’s also a list of essential items the shelter is in desperate need of, and ways you can volunteer your time.

One volunteer project in particular…FMCTAS has been selected by The Woodlands Mall as the non-profit to benefit from the gift-wrapping fundraiser program. They’ll need a small army throughout the holidays, to staff the two shifts from 12-3:30 p.m. and 3:30-7:00 p.m. The shelter volunteers are maximized tending to the animals and their needs, so the FMCTAS needs help from the community to help with this effort. The mall requires the volunteers to be 18 years of age or older. College students home for the holidays or a retiree with time on your hands, please consider donating some time for one of the hardest-working, non-profit organizations in the county that has stretched its band-width to the limit. The FMCTAS is so appreciative of the opportunity to have this exposure during the busy holiday shopping season, but they need the community’s help so that they won’t have to disrupt the services of the animal shelter by drafting the shelter volunteers. Please email hansonsandra@hotmail.com if you can provide your services or have a team that can volunteer some time.
