After ten days, any animal rescued from Galveston that has been posted on the Houston SPCA website will be adopted out.
The people from Galveston have not been allowed consistent re-entry to determine if their animals are missing. They do not have computers. And I am finding the few mentions of this online, although a Houston SPCA volunteer told me "everyone knows about it." How reassuring.
So why isn't it on the Houston SPCA website?
Or on their Animal Central Rescue page?
Or on their Lost and Found Pet Tool
Or even on their partner in this Pets911.com
Is that because everyone knows about it already?
I did find this on the HoustonBlog.net (yet another online mention for those without computers!):
"The Houston SPCA’s “Operation Save a Life” is asking every family who is able to foster a Galveston pet for ten days. If after ten days, the displaced animal is not reclaimed by its original owner, the foster parent has the option to adopt the animal or return him/her to the shelter for placement."
I found a mention in the Galveston Paper, but I am not sure if it was in the print version.
"After rescue teams spent just two days collecting animals from apartments, houses and streets, the shelter was filled to capacity, said Jim Boller, executive director for Code 3, one of the groups that responded to calls for help from Galveston officials."
"Animals will continue to be evacuated to Houston, where they also have a better chance of being reunited with their owners.
Volunteers are taking pictures of each rescued animal and posting those online.
Owners now have just 10 days from the time their pet’s picture appears on the Web site to reclaim the animals. After 10 days, officials from the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will offer them up for adoption."
