Harris County Shelter – Part II

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!

She was afraid to be touched. Dogs should not be hurt by humans.

In case anyone would like to donate to this sweet lady’s Strut Your Mutt page!

Harris County Shelter – The days of Harvey

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.

Heatstroke Prevention and Summer Safety

Image result for heatstroke dog

Phew!  It’s hot outside!  While humans sweat to cool off, a pet’s fur prevents sweating, thereby trapping heat which causes a rapid rise in internal temperature.  Heatstroke can occur when a pet’s internal temperature rises just a few degrees, and can cause serious problems and/or death.  While we have heard not to leave pets in a car on a hot day, there are several other situations which can cause heatstroke in any kind of pet.  Do you know the signs and symptoms, as well as some emergency first aid to help if heatstroke occurs?

Your pet relies on YOU!
Keep them safe in the heat of summer!
