The Houston SPCA will be hitting the road to New Orleans this morning with loads of supplies, including box fans, food, and cases of bottled water for Louisiana SPCA, along with 2800 pounds of Hill’s Science Diet dog and cat food for the community’s pets. The Emergency Response Team will be on the ground working with the Louisiana SPCA to help the impacted animal shelter in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
The animal rescue and protection organization dropped off 2800 pounds of pet food at Gallery Furniture yesterday for distribution that will help for the scores of pet owners in need throughout Louisiana.
The Houston SPCA provided a safe haven for 138 dogs, cats and kittens from Louisiana shelters last Saturday, while some of the pets continued on to San Antonio and Austin. Some of those pets are already available for adoption at the Houston SPCA. The Houston SPCA’s Adoption Center is open Monday through Thursday, from Noon until 7 p.m.; Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. All adoptable pets are posted online at www.houstonspca.org.
