One very pro-active Pasadena, Texas pet shelter is making sure that those which are housed there receive the type and amount of exposure which is needed to be noticed, and eventually adopted. Located at 5160 Burke Road, this new building features various meet-and-greet rooms for pets and their prospective owners and has the capability to accommodate 40 cats and 36 dogs. Already microchipped and ready for adoption, the center focuses on that goal with a staff that works on social media campaigns designed specifically for pet visibility. And all pets available here, come directly from the Pasadena Animal Shelter located immediately next door.

Ken Donnell, shelter manager, also identifies this new property as having a “doggy in the window” effect, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle, explaining, “The unique thing is that you can actually see some of the animals from outside.” It also aims at appealing to organizations and residents by providing a conference/education room with complete and full audio-visual capabilities. The room is available at no cost for community presentations and meetings and is flexible with respect to its audiences. When a meeting or presentation is complete, those in attendance walk past a line of kennels in an odor-free environment, in order to get to the exit. It’s kind of like exiting through the gift store of a public attraction!

According to Donnell, this center is assisting its complementing shelter to find homes for pets in a new atmosphere with greater exposure. Its setting is in stark contrast to the shelter it works with, in which rows of kennels are lined, together with the noise of barking and the smell of all of the pets intermingled, which may cause a prospective pet owner to lose interest. And, if this new center can help their shelter make things more inviting for guests and possibly spark adoptions, they believe it’s worth trying. This new facility is situated immediately next to the original shelter that it works with and for, and its hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday; and 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
