(HOUSTON) November 6, 2020 – The Houston SPCA’s Emergency Response Team returned from Louisiana on Friday with 50 cats and kittens after helping our adoption partners, the Louisiana SPCA and Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter. They are among multiple animal shelters in that area who are still struggling after a dizzying number of hurricanes slammed into the gulf coast, including Hurricane Delta, a Category 4 storm. The Louisiana SPCA’s second campus in Plaquemines Parish is still without power, so the Houston SPCA has stepped in to assist with a rescue transport.
The Houston SPCA has conducted rescue transports for nearly 450 animals during this record-breaking hurricane season for animals who were threatened by the potentially deadly storms in Louisiana and on Galveston Island.
