Puppy Patrol: Longhorns Help Animals in Baltimore


For the last few years, the Baltimore Chapter of the Texas Exes has searched for a volunteer event open to both alums and their children. On Saturday, Feb. 6th, the local chapter gathered with their families, friends, and neighbors at the Baltimore Humane Society on the occasion of 2016 Project Worldwide, UT-Austin’s largest day of service.

This year, the chapter welcomed Brad Powers and his wife Tara to Baltimore. Powers, BA ’05, recently became the Executive Director of the Baltimore Humane Society. He and his staff organized a morning of making enrichment toys for rescue dogs, painting birdhouses, and cleaning up the property. Six birdhouses, donated by Wood Link, will add some burnt orange to the 343-acre protected wildlife sanctuary. The dogs received five large containers filled with disposable enrichment toys.

“According to our Exes,” event organizer Dacia Balch says, “several future Longhorns couldn’t stop talking about the fun day at the Baltimore Humane Society.”
