A low-cost clinic for cats, dogs, and rabbits, Spay/Houston promotes animal wellness by spaying or neutering animals and administering vaccinations and other medical treatments. Veterinarians and volunteers work together to ensure the comfort of the pet patients, separating the kennels to keep stress down, operating quickly––as many as 50 spay or neuter services a day––to lower anesthesia risks, and closely monitoring animals' recovery. The clinic also strives toward improving the well-being of the feral-cat population through low-cost total-treatment packages and arrangements with sanctuaries for cats unfit for wild living. Although the not-for-profit's services are already low-cost, it also works with pet owners to help make the price of services as affordable as possible.
The scene is a familiar one: hotel guests lounge beside the outdoor pool as staff members filter around, offering refreshments or collecting clients for a spa treatment. However, at Pet Paradise, the pool is bone shaped and all the guests are dogs. This luxurious scene is one cat and dog owners can find at this boarding and daycare facility that has been owner Fred Goldsmith's pride and joy for a decade. The animal lover was inspired to start his own pet hotel when he simply couldn’t find a place he was comfortable leaving his bichon frise when he went on vacation.
Fred made Pet Paradise to his exact specifications, and the pet hotel's amenities reflect the loving care he lavishes on his own beloved pup. Dogs and cats can luxuriate in spa-quality grooming treatments or burn off some energy during group playtime. In the evening, pets can settle into plush bedding and feel safe knowing that the dedicated live-in staff resides just a bark away. Nocturnal kitties spend the night exploring their own private six-level cat condos while gentle spa music fills the air to keep them entertained. In case of any emergencies, Pet Paradise keeps veterinarians on-call, and in the event of a snack emergency, each staff member is a certified bacon cook.
Adam was just like many American office workers, entirely dependent on but sometimes mystified by his computer. When his machine broke down, he had to go outside the company for help, and despite combing his area for mobile tech services, he never found one he was happy with. From his pain came enlightenment, and he decided to band together with some friends in similar predicaments to create a business that did mobile tech support right. Embracing their skill set, they called their venture Nerds We Can Fix That!
The team beefed up their technical acumen with intensive study and new recruits, but they remained most committed to their ideal of awesome customer service. These days, they quickly and effectively upgrade or repair any machine, PC or Mac. “89% of all calls are virus related,” confesses Adam, but he and his team still make time for installations and even custom-building entire computers for gamers or super-intelligent dogs.
