We plan on expanding our website in the future to talk more about our past, current, and future projects. We're proud of the work we do and we want to tell everyone about it! But, time is limited when you are relying 100% on volunteers with busy lives. Doing the work to help animals will always be our first priority. We promise to post updates whenever possible, both here and on our Facebook page.
In the meantime, here's a little bit about what we do...
Our namesake, Brody, had a special talent for calming and nurturing animals that were a little more vulnerable, where it was because of their health, age, or special needs. Brody's House proudly carries on his mission to help these extra special furry friends.
People who are homeless often develop strong bonds with their animals and care deeply for their well-being even if they cannot afford to provide everything the animal needs to live a safe and healthy life. It would be detrimental to both the humans and the animals to break these bonds and separate these families. By providing necessities, such as medical care, spaying & neutering, vaccinations, and food, we can work together to help keep these families together.
Even if we could find homes for all of the stray and free-roaming cats, some may not adjust well to living in a traditional home environment. We work to improve the quality of life for these cats, referred to as feral or community cats, while keeping them in their current environment. Brody's House currently feeds and provides medical care for a number of community cat colonies around San Antonio, TX. We advocate for and implement a trap/neuter/return (TNR) program, and we support the many other groups across the country doing the same. If we find kittens that are still young enough to socialize well with humans, we work to find them homes.
Sometimes a homeless animal needs a little extra help before they can find their forever home. It may be medical care or behavioral training. We want to give these animals and their new families the best start possible on their new lives.
We're grateful for the work of all the animal advocacy and rescue groups across this country and around the world. No single organization can take on all of the issues that affect animals or find a home for every animal that needs one. We must work together to make this world a better place for animals. Brody's House is always looking for ways to support other animal organizations with our money, our time, and any other resources we can offer.
