Displaced Hurricane Harvey Dogs Arrive at CASPCA

To further assist in the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the CASPCA has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to transfer 24 dogs from Best Friends base shelter located at the NRG Arena in the heart of Houston.  The NRG Arena housed 450 displaced pets where Best Friends made every attempt possible to reunite them with their families, and is now at a point of moving some of these pets to their partners across the country.

These dogs have been among the hardest for Best Friends to find placement for due to their health issues, which will need ongoing treatment. Upon arrival, each dog will receive a thorough veterinary exam to further determine the dogs’ medical course of action.

We thank YOU for your continued support of the CASPCA. Because of you, we are able to assist in rescue efforts and continue to help save abandoned animals. We are so thankful to our community, volunteers,  supporters, adopters and donors that continue to support our life-saving efforts.

 

CLEAR THE KENNELS ADOPTION EVENT

To further assist in the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the CASPCA has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to transfer 30 dogs from Best Friends base shelter located at the NRG Arena in the heart of Houston. The 30 incoming dogs have been among the hardest for Best Friends to find placement for due to their health issues, which will need ongoing treatment.

To make space for the incoming dogs arriving from Houston, the CASPCA is having a Clear the Kennels adoption event tomorrow, Saturday, October 28th through Tuesday, October 31st. All dog and puppy adoption fees are waived! We are asking adopters to consider making a monetary donation to aid in the care of the incoming animals from Houston.

CASPCA to Aid in Hurricane Harvey Animal Relief Efforts

In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, a team of four staff members from the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA will be traveling to BARC, the City of Houston’s only municipal shelter, to transport displaced and abandoned animals back to the CASPCA for veterinary care and adoption.

To make space for the homeless animals we’re transferring in from Houston, we are having a “Clear the Shelter” adoption event this Saturday, September 2nd through Monday September 4th. All adoption fees will be waived.

During this time, we will have a higher demand for resources, and in addition to monetary assistance, welcome your donation of towels, newspapers, laundry detergent, and yoga mats. We are also collecting donations of pet food and supplies for the animals at the BARC animal shelter that we will deliver upon arrival.
