TEXAS BBQ RESTAURANT DONATES BONES TO SHELTER DOGS - “With these animals, you never know if this is their last stop or not,” he said. “They are totally reliant on the hearts and efforts of the local community to come and save them.”
Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, Texas recently donated 750 bones to dogs at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. The restaurant plans on continuing the donations in the future. Read more from the statesman.com:
“There was a sudden silence,” said Cheryl Schneider, the director of the shelter. “The dogs were quiet and it lasted for the afternoon.”
“With these animals, you never know if this is their last stop or not,” he said. “They are totally reliant on the hearts and efforts of the local community to come and save them.”
He said he didn’t want to waste the bones that customers left behind on their plates, and he also didn’t want to sell them to pet food stores.
“There’s money to be made out there, but it doesn’t fit who we are,” he said. “This is just a new way of us giving back to the canine community. Dogs need love and dogs love barbecue too.”
I’m glad that these shelter dogs were able to enjoy these special treats. It’s a simple act but it means so much to these dogs. Click here for the full story and here to learn about the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. (photos by Andy Sharp)
AWW what a guy
I’m a little worried about the dogs. I’ve NEVER given my dog a cooked bone because they could splinter and seriously harm the dog. Give them raw bones ffs.
I appreciate the thought behind it though.
