An Update on Animals Affected by the Central Texas Wildfires
Sep 06, 2011
The outpouring support we have received from the community these last several days has been incredible. We could not be more thankful for our neighbors for helping us help these displaced homeless animals during this natural disaster. We were able to adopt out 94 animals yesterday into loving homes and hope that we will continue to find families for our dogs and cats today and throughout the rest of the week.
We will be taking in animals from the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter today, as they are overcrowded due to the Leander fire. We are in need of volunteers at our 2807 Manchaca location, as well as donations of canned food (if there is a choice, we prefer Castor & Pollux brand food) and cleaning supplies like bleach and paper towels. We are also in dire need of medical supplies, including vaccines (DHLPP and rabies), flea and tick prevention, heartworm tests and doxycycline. Monetary donations are also welcome to help cover the medical costs for these animals.
Additionally, we have a team of people set up to help people displaced by the fires who need assistance with their pets. If you need a place to board your pet or need food/supplies, email [email protected].
