When doing research for our feature story, I discovered the Cypress Historical Society at Cypress Top Park off Hempstead Road, which houses a wealth of history about the area. With all the growth happening, it’s easy to forget the rich history of our area. Our little corner of Houston played a part in Sam Houston defeating Santa Ana during the Texas Revolution. Stop by the yellow depot and take a tour. You’ll see some relics from Sam Houston’s army among other treasures. It’s our own Cypress museum! Many of our displaced furry friends dream of finding their forever home, and the Abandoned Animal Rescue is one of the many wonderful rescue groups making a difference. The shelter is all-volunteer run, and they recently moved to a larger facility to better accommodate the animals in their care. Check out AAR's story and learn what you can do to help. Our lifestyle contributor, Alley Leto, LifeOfAlley.com blogger and local personality, offers her ideas for creating a special gift for overnight guests in your home. I love the idea of going the extra mile to make guests feel welcome and comfortable.

GIVING BACK

GIVING PAWS A HELPING HAND ARTICLE MELISSA LAUREN | PHOTOGRAPHY JOSH OLALDE

LOCAL SHELTER HOUSES DOGS AND CATS UNTIL THEY FIND THEIR “FUREVER” HOME

ABANDONED ANIMAL RESCUE’S SLOGAN IS

“GIVING PAWS A HELPING HAND.” This nonprofit’s mission is to shelter homeless pets until they are placed in  permanent homes. Founded in 2002 by three dedicated animal lovers, Angie Fenton, Barbara Schulz  and James Gordon, AAR is entirely managed and maintained by volunteers. Abandoned Animal Rescue works toward ending pet overpopulation that results in the euthanasia of unwanted cats and dogs. The organization accomplishes this through its adoption program and low-cost spay/neuter program, which is offered through Texas Litter Control. AAR is committed to the emotional, physical and behavioral well-being of each animal in its care. Houston currently has a population of 200,000 homeless pets, and half of those animals are euthanized each year. Although AAR’s mission statement says it wants to end the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs, the nonprofit

B e c au s e A A R r e a l i z e s s pay / n e u t e r i s t h e o n ly s o l u t i o n to p e t o v e r p o p u l at i o n a n d u n n e c e s sa ry e u t h a n as i a , pa r t o f i ts m i s s i o n i s to p r o v i d e a f f o r d a b l e s pay / n e u t e r to t h e p u b l i c t h r o u g h i ts pa r t n e r s h i p w i t h T e x as L i t t e r C o n t r o l .

knows it's a distant destination. With support from the community, AAR will be able to continue working toward making our community a no-kill, safe haven for homeless pets. Because AAR realizes spay/neuter is the only solution to pet overpopulation and unnecessary euthanasia, part of its mission is to provide affordable spay/neuter to the public through its partnership with Texas Litter Control. TLC is located in AAR's facility, and appointments can be booked online at TexasLitterControl.org. The TLC Clinic is open Fridays for spay and neuter surgeries and Saturdays for wellness appointments. Services include low-cost spay/neuter, wellness exams, vaccinations, and heartworm and flea prevention for cats and dogs. Consider becoming a new furry friend’s foster parent. Experience the rewarding joy of helping an animal toward its bright future. Foster animals typically stay in a foster home for four to six weeks. That is usually all the time it takes to prepare a young animal’s immune system for life at the shelter and, ultimately, at its new home. AAR also needs people who are willing to foster animals with medical cases. Those dogs and cats may need more time CONTINUED >

than six weeks to achieve their health goals. From food and basic supplies (including crate, newspapers, litter box and medications) to on-call support, AAR provides foster homes with everything needed to give a puppy or a kitten a healthy new beginning. AAR staff can guide you through best practices as a foster parent if you already have a pet in the home. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities for the public. Two hours a week makes a huge difference. Thanks to its volunteers, AAR saves the lives of more than 500 dogs and cats each year. Help is needed in the following areas: dog care, cat care, office work, fundraising/event

planning,

yard

work and more. Volunteers are trained by AAR staff. Teens 16 and older can volunteer unsupervised by a parent or guardian. Kids ages 12 to 15 may volunteer with a parent or guardian.

HOW TO HELP + Too many pets are born every year, and many don’t have homes. Spaying and neutering your own pets helps solve this problem. + Sign up for Kroger Awards card and select AAR as your nonprofit organization. + When you  shop at Amazon, sign up for an Amazon Smile account and select AAR as your charity. + Talk to teachers, church groups, Boy or Girl Scout troops and other organizations about collecting pet food and supplies for AAR. + Hold a fundraiser such as a bake sale, car wash, or lemonade stand and donate the money to help the animals at AAR. + Donate pet food and supplies to AAR. + Foster younger pets until they are ready to go to the shelter. Learn more at AARTexas.org.

The yellow train depot replica on the park grounds houses the Cypress Historical Society. German settlers arrived not long after Gen. Sam Houston and his Texas army camped in the area on April 16, 1836, on the way to Harrisburg just five days before the Battle of San Jacinto during the Texas Revolution. Around the time the railroad reached Cypress from Houston, William R. Baker, then secretary of the Houston and Texas Central Railroad, bought the tract of land that became Cypress Top in 1856. He built two hotels there for train passengers. One is now known as Juergen’s Store and the other as the Juergen House. CONTINUED >
