Houston Zoo and UHAA to celebrate Shasta’s third birthday
The Houston Zoo and the UH Alumni Association will celebrate the birthday of UH’s live mascot Shasta IV.
The festivities will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Houston Zoo. Those who wear UH attire before noon will get in free.
The pride of UH will receive his cake at 10:30 a.m., and visitors can sing “Happy Birthday” to the wild feline.
Visitors can also get involved with Cougar Craftmaking. In addition, Shasta fans can adopt him and make a $75 contribution that will go toward Shasta’s care and UHAA’s scholarship programs.
