EMANCIPET’S U P LLING FOR HAUL-OW - EEN EDITION
mancipet's fundraising event, Pulling for Pets Haul-O-Ween edition was held at Saint Arnold Brewing Company on Sunday, October 24th (pullingforpets.org). Presented by Tito's Handmade Vodka and Vodka for Dog People, this one-day event featured teams competing to pull a City of Houston (Station 19) fire truck over 20 feet in the fastest time. Speed wasn't the only thing that counted in this tournament - awards were be given out for best costumes, top individual and team fundraisers, and additional fun categories! The Cereal Killers Team (sponsored by SDC Builds, Inc.) placed FIRST in the categories of fastest pull, best team costume, and they were one of the top-tiers for overall team fundraising. In
additional to SDC Builds Inc.’s Cereal Killers, other teams included Alchemy Salon (Houston), The Houston Sabercats Rugby Team and three Emancipet staff teams. The Haul was followed by a Yappy Hour with pet tarot card readings, a pet costume contest, pet-friendly vendors and a pet fall photo booth. Pulling for Pets was not only entertaining and a family-fun event but it also successfully raised funds to continue Emancipet’s work throughout Houston communities. As a nonprofit organization, Emancipet relies on fundraising, sponsorship, donations, and support to help keep veterinary services affordable for ALL pet families in underserved communities.
