Literacy Advance Of Houston Is Looking For Volunteers Your way to transform a life in need… Teach someone to read! Just a few hours a week can make all the difference for someone in your community! Literacy Advance is Houston’s largest and oldest 100% volunteersupported literacy organization - and we need your help! We’re calling all passionate volunteers to help adults learn to read, write and speak English. All classes are free because they are taught by caring people just like you willing to volunteer a few hours a week. We’d love to match you with a person in need.

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!
