Beaumont pet rescues being held at Pine Street and Ford Park

Beaumont Animal Services paired with the Humane Society of the United States to bring in animals daily from the flood waters; most as a result of being left behind or displaced by Harvey. There are four field officers responding to calls and a 4 -8 man Animal Rescue Team going out daily, conducting high-water rescues, according to the Beaumont Police Department. As of Tuesday, Sept. 5, the animal services team reports about 100 animals in the shelter at 1884 Pine Street in addition to the hundreds of animals piloted to Ford Park.

Beaumont Animal Care’s Animal Shelter is under emergency operations and is currently not open to the public, but available to assist the public in looking for their displaced animals. Beaumont Animal Care will be open for "reclaims only," from 2 - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Bring an ID and any vaccination records as well as a photo of the missing pet (if available) to assist in locating it.

Also, be sure to check Jefferson County’s sheltering location at Ford Park on IH-10; many other rescue groups are taking animals to this location. The Houston ASPCA is set up there, manning the small animal shelter and would be able to assist citizens at that location.
