Houston has way too many strays and shelter animals. Plus they are abused. My son Gablu was born on the cruel streets of Houston, and at 6 weeks, he already had his nose broken. He is the reason I foster and rescue.
The shelters in Houston are all kill shelters, which means dogs and cats that end up there will be euthanized if not adopted or rescued within a stipulated time.
Rescue groups cannot pull animals without fosters. So please consider fostering for the shelter or a local rescue group. If you can't foster, you can volunteer as a local transporter who can take pups to the vets or their destinations. If you cannot volunteer, maybe you can donate towards their boarding or vetting costs.
Make sure to microchip your pet and update your information so you can be notified if someone finds them.
Any lost/found pet must be scanned for chip - it's free at the vet.
Post the found pup's pictures on your nextdoor.com and pawboost.org to reunite them with their owners. Make sure to ask for proof before handing over a found pup. Some owners should not have pets. So, if you feel an owner is abusive or neglectful, surrender the pup to a rescue group.
Houston has a large animal problem. Let's come together as a solution and make sure every pet has a family and a warm bed. 💗
To foster or volunteer for a rescue group, join us at www.savesomesouls.org because it only takes one soul to save another.
