Pet Adoption of Cuero gets a helping hand from the Cuero Gobblers Football team

Cuero football players spend their morning walking shelter dogs

CUERO, Texas – Pet Adoptions of Cuero got some help from the Cuero Gobblers football team with walking the dogs today.

The Cuero Gobblers Football Team also donated more than 1,000 pounds of pet food for the shelter.

Cuero Head Coach, Jack Alvarez, challenged his team to participate in community service like this. He says it teaches the important value of helping others.

“If we can teach these guys to do something for a helpless animal, hopefully they’ll learn how to do something for a human being someday,” says Alvarez.

Linda Anzaldua, President of Pet Adoptions of Cuero, was excited to see all the football players come by to lend a helping hand.

“We’re so excited that the Cuero Gobblers, who are the district champions, usually come out every Thursday, to walk our dogs. We do need those football players to walk the dogs cause we have tons of large dogs that need exercise, so today, they decided to do a food drive and we’re so appreciative!” says Anzaldua.

Several players now have a favorite dog they like to walk.

They plan to do this every Thursday until their favorite dog has a forever home.
