K-9 Angels Rescue went to help clean up at HCPH for the second time yesterday. We were so surprised when Miranda Lambert’s Mutt Nation arrived at HCPH. They took 71 dogs! It allowed the staff to get the shelter extra clean and ready for hurricane relief. Thank you to everyone who helped!
Just because we’re in the middle of a hurricane, doesn’t mean the animal shelters can shut down. Harris County animal shelter put out a plea for volunteers to help, so 4 of us from K-9 Angels Rescue – Houston, TX showed up this morning to clean. Best way to get over my hurricane hangover
Instead of hunkering down at home with their families, the shelter has a skeleton crew to care for and monitor the cats and dogs stuck there during this bad weather. The staff even has several people spending the night at the shelter every night until the storm passes. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is. I don’t know many people that would be willing to do that, yet they were all smiles, as usual, because these animals are their passion.
The amazing HCPH staff cares so much for these homeless, unwanted, discarded and forgotten animals, but we can’t get cats adopted at all. The adoption fee is $0 this month. They’re free. Fully vetted – fixed, chipped, vaccinated.
65 cats are ready to go. Nobody wants them. They literally can’t give them away.
Please tell your friends to go adopt a cat and save a life. It’s heartbreaking seeing these beautiful animals counting down their days in such a terrifying place. Because the truth is that there won’t be space to hold them forever. And more just keep coming in.
If we can get on the road in the morning, we’re going to clean again. If you’re a current HCPH volunteer, we’d love you to come help. It’s the least we can do.

Even as seasoned rescuers, we still get shocked by the condition some of these pups are in when we find them.
Two days ago (June 5 2017) someone found this puppy all alone by a dumpster and turned him into the Harris County animal shelter. He has a large open wound on his back that was completely infested with maggots. The maggots literally ate holes deep into his body. Apart from the maggots, he was anemic, emaciated, covered in fleas… and only 3 weeks old. He should still be nursing from his mom but he was all alone. Literally thrown out with the trash.
We don’t know how he ended up by the dumpster, and it really doesn’t matter now. As soon as the incredible veterinarians at the shelter told us about him and how long it took them to pull the maggots out of his tiny body, we knew we had to help.
He is with one of our most experienced bottle-baby fosters since he requires around the clock syringe feedings. He has had multiple vet visits already to make sure we’re controlling his terrible infection. At only 3 weeks old and 1.5 pounds we have to be incredibly careful with the drugs we use; many can be harmful to his young kidneys and liver. He’s on multiple medicines and hydrotherapy, but he is still so terribly uncomfortable. He only finds it easy to sleep while his foster mommy is holding him. 💔
We have high hopes for this little fighter, even though his prognosis is still guarded. We will do everything we can for him because he deserves a full life and a happy ending. If you would like to donate to his care, please do. We will need it to cover his already piling medical bills.

His foster mommy has named him Fuzz Buzz: he’s fuzzy in the front and buzzed in the back. We believe he is a small breed but won’t know for sure until he gets bigger and stronger. And we pray he will. Soon.
