COST ASSISTANCE
Grant funds may be available during the year to help with the cost of spay or neuter. Additionally, grant money may help with pet vaccinations. We will announce availability on this website, Facebook and Twitter.


TRAP AND RELEASE PROGRAM

If you live in San Patricio County, Texas and know where there are feral cats, please call us at 361-332-1445 or click CONTACT to email us.  We will need to know the location of the colony, approximate number of cats or kittens, current food source and general condition. We’ll use this information to contact area rescues and provide help as funds become available.

TRAPS AVAILABLE/NEEDED

We have humane cat traps available for short-term loan.  If you need to trap a cat for medical purposes such as spay/neuter, please call 361-332-1445 or click CONTACT to email us. Be sure to leave a short message with your name and phone number.  We will return your call.

If you have traps you know longer need, please consider dropping them off to us so we can, in turn, provide help to others.


VETERINARY TIPS

ANIMALS IN EXTREME HEAT AND DRY CONDITIONS

Hot dry weather affects  pets as much or more than it affects people. Shade, protection from elements and fresh water are essential. Do not over exercise pets and be especially careful of older ones. Always be watchful of heatstroke symptoms. Remember, hot concrete and pavement can easily burn the tender pads of feet so use protective paw pads or wait until late evening to walk your dog. Insects such as fleas and ticks also look for shade and moisture near your home. Snakes, rats, and other creatures are apt to seek refuge in garden areas and near foundations where it is cooler.
