Tena Lundquist Faust and Tama Lundquist are animal advocates, who have dedicated their lives to improving the lives of companion animals. Working together as co-presidents of Houston PetSet, they have been able to make a significant impact in the fight against animal homelessness and suffering.

Their passion and dedication have helped them raise millions of dollars for animal welfare organizations, and they have been instrumental in passing legislation to protect animals in Houston. Their work in passing the Safe Outdoor Dogs Act in Texas is a testament to their commitment to animal welfare.

Their efforts are captured in the powerful and inspiring documentary, For the Animals, which follows their journey as they work to combat the stray dog epidemic in Houston. Through their tireless work, they are showing that it only takes one person to make a difference.

Tena and Tama’s work has not gone unnoticed, as they have received the support of the local community, volunteers, street feeders, advocates, and city leaders. Together, they are working towards a common goal of alleviating and ending the suffering of companion animals in Houston and ultimately, nationwide.
