Start The New Year With A New Best Friend And Family Member! Loving Arms Pet Placement has an assortment of wonderful dogs and cats hoping for their forever homes. We have all different types of small to large dogs, mixed breeds and many wonderful cats to choose from. We are a foster-based rescue for dogs and cats. If you are not ready to commit to adopting a dog or cat permanently, the animals also need foster families. Besides providing food, water and a safe place to sleep, foster families socialize the animals so they are people friendly. Include the animal in your daily home life inside your home. Get to know them as individuals so you can share personality traits, likes/dislikes, anecdotes. Treat the animal like your own and train him/her, if possible. Although you may feel sadness when your foster animal is adopted, please know that your efforts helped to prepare the cat or dog for his/her forever home. Visit Loving Arms Pet Placement website at www.lovingarmspetplacement. com or visit us at Petsmart on Highway 6 and FM 529 each Saturday from 11 AM until 5 PM. Just Serve!

Boy Scouts of America - Copperhead District For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to: • Try new things. • Provide service to others. • Build self-confidence. • Reinforce ethical standards. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility and high selfesteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made. Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which help our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5 to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.
