For anyone who doubts the ongoing crisis of unwanted pets plaguing our nation – look no further than one animal shelter in Houston, Texas. On Friday morning, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Harris County Animal Shelter Volunteers reached out to Facebook followers about the deluge of puppies received in JUST ONE HOUR:
The Harris County Animal Shelter received a shocking 59 puppies in just under 1 hour yesterday; every one of them needs just one person to step up for them to save their life.
The shelter is full… So full that sweet dogs and cats who have done nothing wrong but exist may never see sunshine and grass again.
In a disposable society, unwanted pets pay the price – with their lives. This terrible problem is at just one facility – the same problem exists across the country. If rescues are not found in time, the puppies who were taken in at the facility will die.
From the shelter volunteers:
If you live in Harris County and can temporarily foster for transport, email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and ask who is in need of a foster for the shelter. If you live in the area but not specifically Harris County, comment below and we will try to find a rescue.
If you are interested in adopting, please make it out to the shelter this weekend. You are their only hope.
