UPDATE --- HOUSTON, TX – (September 17, 2014) - On Wednesday, September 17, a Galveston County judge signed an agreed order awarding permanent custody of the more than 140 animals rescued from a property in Santa Fe, TX, including over 70 Irish Wolfhounds, to the Houston SPCA.

The animals rescued from Santa Fe on September 12, included 102 dogs, two turtles, five tortoises, 14 parrots, two doves, four cockatiels, three cats, five chickens, and five snakes.  The Houston SPCA, working at the request of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, is one of the only organizations in the region with the facilities and expertise to provide rescue, humane transport, custodial care and rehabilitation for such a large, diverse group of animal species.

The Houston SPCA continues to provide all of the rescued animals with comfort, veterinary care and quality nutrition.  The Houston SPCA will be working closely with the Irish Wolfhound Club of America and other adoption partners regarding potential placement options.  Interested parties are encouraged to monitor the Houston SPCA’s Facebook page for additional updates as they become available.

We’d like to thank our partners Hill’s Pet Nutrition for supplying the cat and dog food and VCA Animal Hospitals for providing medication to help us, help them.

For more information, please contact Raequel Roberts, Vice President of Advancement and Communications at (832) 473-5639.


SANTA FE, TX - September 12, 2014 - Another massive animal rescue for the SPCA and  Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

We're talking over 100 animals!

They saved over 70 Irish wolfhounds and other dogs, six Sulcata tortoises, fresh water turtles, snakes, macaws, doves, cockatiels, and cats.

The animals were living in poor conditions. Some didn't even have food or water. What's worse is that several dead animals were, also, found on the property.

Come on people, if you're going to be a pet parent, then make sure you can give all the love and care the animals deserve.
