These are a few of the dogs who will be euthanized first thing Saturday morning if not rescued or fostered. They need to be rescued by Friday night. Staff and volunteers have been working very hard to help the dogs affected by Hurricane Ike. For all of our efforts there will still be over a hundred dogs euthanized on Saturday morning if the power is restored before then. If you can, please help these dogs. They deserve a second chance. Montgomery County Animal Shelter has been helping other shelters in the Houston areas who incurred worse damage, but we still need help. We will not be able to help these dogs without your help. Please consider rescuing some of these dogs. Medication, etc. can be provided by a MCAS vet if needed. Just let us know what you need. The power has not yet been restored to the shelter, but when it returns these dogs will not be able to stay.

We are not sure when the power will be restored. Staff have been working at the shelter overtime in order to take care of the animals. Staff are there in the mornings from 9-12 A.M. We are not taking in any animals until the power comes back on. You can come by the shelter located at 8535 State Hwy 242 in Conroe, Texas 77385 (phone number for MCAS is 936-442-7738) during that time or meet up with one of the volunteers in the afternoon. Please call me if you can help 281-465-0570 or 832-326-2468 cell. Thank you!!!! Maile Schuyler, MCAS volunteer
We can figure out transportation if you are not in the immediate area.
