While saving the lives of homeless cats and dogs in Baytown is at the core of A Life to Live’s mission, education also is key.
That education comes in many forms, including sharing with community organizations why we’re here and the importance of our goals and services.
We had an opportunity to do just that recently with Baytown Lions Club members. Jay Garrett, founder and executive director of A Life to Live, was the guest speaker at their August 15 meeting.
After enjoying a nice lunch at Golden Corral, Jay spent about 20 minutes providing an overview of A Life to Live’s history and programs. That was followed by a brief question-and-answer session.
We also distributed printed materials to members that highlight volunteer and foster opportunities, and the importance of pet microchipping and trap, spay/neuter, return.
We appreciate being able to share our story with others in the community. Thanks for the invitation from Baytown Lions Club, in particular Kathy Anderson, club president, and Dr. Anthony Price, first vice president.
