Fort Bend County Animal Services has issued a PUSH list in an effort to alleviate the overcrowding at the shelter and find homes for 24 of the longest residents by Saturday, July 1.
“PUSH is our acronym for Pets Urgently Seeking Homes,” explained FBCAS Director Rene Vasquez. “Our shelter is not designed to hold over 200 animals and we are, right now, exceeding that number.
Unfortunately, when we reach this point we have to publish this list of the dogs most in need of adoption, rescue or fostering to save their lives. It’s not a place we want to be at, but we are doing what we can through adoption specials and community outreach through the media to reach the widest audience possible to help these pets, some of which have been with us since December and January.”
“ Right now, we are offering all of the dogs on our PUSH list for an adoption fee of $10 which includes an already spayed/neutered dog, basic and rabies vaccines, heartworm testing and a microchip,” said Community Involvement Coordinator Barbara Vass.
“We also are offering all of our pets that have been turned in by their owners for $10, and those that are six months and older for $25, six months and younger, $50 and all cats that are already spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and combo tested for just $1.”
The role of Fort Bend County Animal Services is to eradicate the spread of rabies among the county’s animals and to prevent rabies in the human population.
In an average year, FBCAS has approximately 4,000 dogs and cats come through its doors and the need to find loving and happy homes for those companion animals grows every day.
