Have you ever heard of the beautiful Woodlands in Texas? It’s a community in the Houston area known as being a part of the Sugar Land Metropolitan location. Although it started off as a little exurban development project it has quickly grown with corporations and corporate campuses and is an established and well maintained place to visit. The number of animals that roam this area is astonishing but with such greenery available it is no wonder people and fur babies love it so much.
Within The Woodlands are a few shelters, but one, in particular, that is doing great things is Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary. They focus on older and terminally ill dogs, giving them a place to spend their last few years in loving care, and a lot of outdoors. This Sanctuary also gives temporary homes to dogs that just need a place to crash before they find a permanent family, a lot of them have suffered through physical and emotional pain, and need to be rehabilitated with love and care before leaving.
The Woodlands is a perfect location for this, as it is such a beautiful small community, which makes it a great place to connect with people and animals quickly. The community loves to help each other as much as they can, and The Woodlands Eco Realty even donates 20% of their income to the Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary to guarantee a home for a voiceless dog. The Woodlands is a community filled with beauty, animal lovers, and kindness, check it out as soon as you can!
