Thank you to everyone that came out to support a local Chambers County animal rescue. There are dozens of races every weekend and we appreciate everyone that chose to spend the day with us. During the barrel race, there was silent auction bidding and delicious bar b que.
Let’s not forget that both the Anahuac and Chambers County Pounds are full of friendly, deserving, and adoptable dogs. The longer they remain in the pound, the higher their risk of an unhappy ending. As always, spay and neuter all pets. Adopt, don’t shop.
