Overwhelming Response at Harris County Animal Shelter Bookmark

Overwhelming Response at Harris County Animal Shelter
Animal lovers across Houston showed up in full force last week after the Harris County Animal Shelter received 59 puppies in one hour on July 6. A record-setting 100 animals were adopted over the weekend after volunteers sent out pleas for help using social media. Despite the overwhelming response, volunteers say there are still animals awaiting adoption. Harris County hopes to reduce owner-surrendered pets and improve the adoption rate with a new pet clinic funded by a donation from Houston PetSet.
