Each month, Research PALs will be sharing a family pet “pal” on our page! Research PALs has also partnered with Friends For Life Animal Shelter to co-host educational events for our families. Friends For Life was founded in 2002 and introduced the no-kill shelter model to Houston, saving animals regardless of their breed, age, or condition. They are here to help our neighbors care for the pets they love while innovating, improving, and tracking results to find the most effective ways to save lives.
