This year's Coastal Bend Day of Giving supports 50 area nonprofits on the forefront of assisting those in need, and Peewee's Pet Adoption World and Sanctuary, Inc. is one of them.
From Peewee's Pet Adoption World and Sanctuary, Inc.:
"Peewee's Pet Adoption World and Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501©3 non-profit organization established in 1995. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that 6 to 8 million dogs and cats end up in shelters each year and that nearly 4 million of them are euthanized.
Corpus Christi Animal Control takes in thousands of pets each year. The majority of these homeless animals end up euthanized as very few are claimed or adopted, and we are doing everything we can to get ahead of the overpopulation problem. Our mission is to be a true no-kill animal sanctuary for abandoned pets, providing all medical and physical needs while attempting to place them in new, loving homes.
The shelter is located on a four-and-a-half acre tract that was donated to Peewee's in 2002 and lies just outside of the Corpus Christi city limits. Our shelter hours are 10am to 5pm seven days a week. The facility maintains a Board of Directors, which meets regularly and supervises the policy of everyday operations.
Peewee's strongly enforces a true no kill shelter environment. Sick animals are treated, and veterinary care is sought as necessary. All animals are vaccinated, spayed, and neutered upon entry into the shelter. They are also placed on heartworm prevention as well as flea and tick prevention. Peewee's currently houses about 450 animals."
