The Houston Team + many friends and family gathered together on Saturday, April 30th, battling severe weather right out of the gate, at the Houston Eskimo Rescue (HER) – Spring Location to install energy saving window tint film, drapery hardware and curtains, assemble a feline tree and take adoption photographs of several dogs to help them find forever homes.  EskimoThis project was important to us because as you know, Houston gets hot! hot!! hot!!! during the summer and cooling costs are high.  It was important to us to help the rescue save money on cooling the building so they can put that money towards the direct care of the animals and finding them new homes.  We found out quickly that Susan and Lisa must have been window tinters in a past life, they made it look SO easy and did a phenomenal job!  Mala, the rescue manager had nothing but praise for our team and was so grateful that we chose HER for our project.  We really did make a difference and we could all feel the difference in temperature as the tint film went up!  We have plans to return to the rescue for other volunteer projects outside of IMADD later this year! 

I want to sincerely thank our Houston ladies for rallying the troops (husbands and friends) and coming together on a stormy Saturday morning to help these animals.

Thank you again to our Houston team and all of the Eydent teams that participated in IMADD this year – the willingness to give back to our local communities in our personal time is part of what makes us such a strong Eydent (and IMA) Family!
