Dallas-Fort Worth is currently preparing to receive Hurricane Gustav animal evacuees. Louisiana is expected to begin evacuations on Saturday if the Hurricane continues on its current path.
Earlier this week the SPCA of Texas shelters in Dallas and McKinney stopped accepting owner-surrendered pets in efforts to make room for animals being moved out of Hurricane Gustav’s way. They have also reduced animal adoption fees by 50% to help in the process.
