Sunday, Carmelita woke up before it was light. The chemo made her feel exhausted and nauseous.
It’s the end of a 12-hour Sunday. An exhausted, but fulfilled, team took a pause after the last client of the day.
We went to bed looking at the 70% chance of thunderstorms. But we also knew we had a fully booked clinic today.
What attendees are saying…
I traveled from Galveston with my 5 furbabies and I cannot thank you all enough for the blessings and relief you brought to my family.

We thank you for your kindness concerning our issue. I recently checked my email, Penny’s prescriptions have been filled and are on the way. You and Friends4Life have a “Special Place” with us.

It’s been a week and this just makes my heart so full of love. As I told a friend, I’d forgo food in order to feed Harriet, and I know many other pet parents who’d do the same, so thank you for making sure pets are fed so humans can have food, too. You are so much more than a place to adopt an animal.
Thank y’all so much for what y’all do!! A great blessing. 🙂 Romeo, Max, Ace, Shadow, and myself greatly appreciate the effort, time, and support!!

Is there a limit on the number of animals I can bring?
No. If you plan on bringing more than eight (8) pets, though, shoot us an email so we can get you setup (since our form only has spots for eight animal details to be listed right now).
Currently, we’re only setup to help support owned/in-home pets right now. If you need help caring for your community cats, please reach out to our Fix Houston™ team.
Do I need to income qualify in order to receive services?
No. This service is open to everyone.
Do you limit these services to a specific area of Houston?
No. This service is open to everyone.
Can I get heartworm (HW) preventatives from you without seeing the vet at the Drive-Thru Clinic?
- For dogs under 6 months: Yes.
- For dogs over 6 months with proof of a HW test in the last year: Yes.
- For dogs over 6 months without proof of a HW test in the last year: No.
Heartworm testing is required prior to dispensing heartworm preventative (without documentation of a heartworm test within the past year).
We will not be testing dogs under 6 months for heartworms; the earliest heartworms can be detected is 6 months after a dog has been bitten by an infected mosquito. We can still provide preventative for them.
What vaccinations are you offering for free at these Drive-Thru Clinics?
- DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus)
- FVRCP (Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia)
