UPDATE – September 4, 2017
Hundreds of animals receiving care in the temporary emergency shelter located in Beaumont, Texas for nearly a week. It’s a wonderful collaboration of emergency response teams from around the nation, all working to save pets affected by the storm.
Today’s goal at the emergency shelter is to move all of the dogs to the comfort of the Houston SPCA. Each of the animals is clearly identified and the location where they were found is documented, in hopes to more easily reunite these beloved pets with their people. Animal shelters across the nation have accepted adoptable animals from Houston SPCA, in order to make room for the stray pets that have been found, and the owned pets whose families are unable to take their pets home at this time. That way, these displaced pets can stay close to where they were found, and the pets already available for adoption or surrendered by their owners can find wonderful forever homes in a different city, or even a different state!
Our emergency shelter team is also working with the more than 90 equine displaced by the storms, also housed at the temporary shelter in Beaumont.
Our rescue team is also on standby for land and water rescue. Stay tuned on this page, and on our Facebook page, where we will also post updates and photos.
