2018 Kid’s Art Contest

2018 Kid’s Art Contest

We know that kids love animals and that kids are truly passionate about wanting to help our furry little ones.  And, because of this, we are very happy to say that we have a way that kids can help!  Kids in our area now have a way that they can easily contribute to our mission and help our furry friends – all while doing what they do best…. being creative!!!

ALL kids entering this art contest will receive a special Thank You card in the mail “signed” by one of the pets currently available for adoption at the Pearland Animal Shelter. These pets truly want to thank our kids from our community for wanting to help them find their forever homes, and, therefore, each child will receive a special personalized “Paw Signed” Thank You Card – a true paw print of one of the many pets available at the Pearland Animal Shelter!
