From Carl Holder - the update as of Sunday, September 4, 2005 - Thesituation is not desperate and animals are still coming into the
SPCA as well as a number of other shelters and rescue groups.
The Beaumont area humane society of SE Texas (an independent shelter)
loaded and has purchased additional runs to house the many dogs. Many
animals now are going to Baton Rouge and Lafayette shelters. There is a
group that is getting the strays that were abandoned.
There are lots of wild rumors going around. "Shoot to kill" is one of
rumors and simply not true. The Baton Rouge local independent shelter
still taking animals.
Food is not needed! Many dog and cat food companies are supplying fresh
to the shelters that need it. Local people that were not affected by
hurricane are coming out in mass to volunteer to help at the shelters.
The Beaumont Texas shelter is NOT adopting animals out because they
the owners are. Those animals that are not identified are not going to
adopted out right away either to give owners a chance to reunite with
Many people are coming out daily to visit their pets.
Please, if people or clubs wish to donate, it needs to be money and
