HOUSTON (CW39) Before Hurricane Ida made it to the coast of Louisiana, The Houston Humane Society jumped into action to help rescue animals at shelters around Louisiana. Volunteers were able to evacuate nearly 100 shelter dogs from Jefferson SPCA in New Orleans. H.H.S. provided food and shelter and a dry and cozy place to sleep. Now, these rescued animals are ready for their next adventure and lease on life.
That’s why the Houston Humane Society is offering 50% off adoptions of Hurricane Ida Rescues. The shelter, one of the city’s largest non-profit animal welfare organizations, is dedicated to eliminating cruelty, abuse and the overpopulation of animals. The goal of this adoption program is to give more families in Greater Houston an affordable opportunity to find a new furry companion. Prospective adopters can visit the shelter to meet the dogs eligible for discounted adoption. Just head to:

Before Hurricane Ida, Houston Humane Society had reached critical capacity due to COVID-related surrenders and abandonment cases. In the aftermath of the storm, Houston Humane Society has established the Hurricane Ida Animal Relief Fund to help cover the cost of food, shelter and medical care for rescued animals.
