Despite round-the-clock rescue efforts, all of the animals at a flooded shelter in Hankamer, Texas, have not been saved. Water released from a dam north of the facility has overwhelmed the kennels of the Tall Tails Animal Rescue.
Early Tuesday morning, the latest on the dire situation was posted to social media:
Please pray for us and our dogs. Its non-stop raining here. We are laying on a picnic table near all the dogs we could get. Trying to catch a little sleep to regain strength for tomorrow. Please pray to whatever God or spiritual being you pray too. And may God forgive us for the choices we had to make today.”
Adding hopeless words about the heartbreaking conditions:
in no way shape or form are the animals safe. Last night Kevin and Megan went back very very late and it was unsafe, in the matter of 1 hour the water rose 3 inches. Dogs and Pigs still remain at the property and another dam may be released this morning.
