We are pleased to welcome the arrival of twenty three adorable cats and kittens who were safely transported to our animal care campus last Thursday evening. In the wake of the hurricanes, many Texas and Florida shelters had to quickly make room for the overwhelming amount of lost and displaced animals.


We quickly reached out to find out how we could help animals that were currently living in those shelters most impacted in Texas and Florida and were alerted that 13 felines desperately needed placement out of Texas asap. Shortly after, an urgent call came in to assist with the rescue of 10 cats and kittens from Miami-Dade County Animal Services in Florida, who was prepping to make space as quickly as possible as Irma approached.

“We’re honored to lend a small hand in making lives better for these cats and kittens who desperately needed a safe haven and second chance,” said the SPCA’s Executive Director Shannon Laukhuf.

A special Emergency Fund has been set up for the lucky 23. Please consider donating to cover the cost of veterinary care and rehabilitation. Every dollar helps to restore health and good spirits while they await their forever homes.
