What a great first podcast and thank you shedding the light on the many Houston animal welfare issues on a new platform too. All of your efforts to improve the lives of so many of the poor dogs and cats that suffer in our city and your relentlessly fighting to be their voices and advocating legislatively, transporting shelter pets out of state, sponsoring free spay and neuter, etc. I appreciate you so much and look forward to this very informative podcast.
