Forever Friends Looking Forward to First-Ever PAWp Up Shop Event

The city of Sugar Land’s first ever PAWp Up Shop will be held November 19th, from 10 am to 2 pm, at the animal shelter, 101 Gillingham Lane.

The event is an opportunity for the community to learn more about shelter operations, volunteer opportunities and meet the adoptable pets available at the facility. The family-oriented event will include fun activities for all ages, including:

• Those who think they have what it takes to make it at the animal shelter are encouraged to participate in the “poop” scooping relay races! Prizes will be awarded.

• A “Pup Strut” will be live streamed the Tuesday prior to the event to advertise the shelter’s finest adoptable pets that will be present at the event.

• Participants may bring their family pets for low-cost microchipping. The cost will be $15.50 per pet. For pets already microchipped, city staff will be available to verify information on file and make any necessary updates to contact information.

• Animal shelter tours will offer an opportunity to meet staff, see the facilities and visit with adoptable pets. Those considering a forever home for one of Sugar Land’s pets can visit before arriving at the shelter.
