animal shelter

For the month of August, Beaumont Animal Care reports a live release rate of 81 per cent at the animal shelter. The live release rate refers to the percentage of animals that leave the shelter alive. Animals leave the shelter through being reclaimed by their owner, being adopted into a new home, being released into a trap-neuter-return program, being released into temporary foster care, or being transferred to a separate agency, such as a rescue organization. In the month of August, 353 animals were brought to the shelter and 288 animals left the shelter alive.

Beaumont Animal Care (BAC) has released their euthanasia rates for the period of January through May for 2018. 

BAC’s percentage of animals euthanized has declined from 51 percent in 2016 to 21 percent for the same time period in 2018. BAC has been working to reach the goal of 10 percent or less of animals euthanized in the shelter. To meet this goal BAC is asking the public to consider adopting a pet from them. BAC says that they have many “wonderful” dogs and cats that are all fully vaccinated, micro chipped and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Hi, my name is Altuve! I was born in the foster program of HSSET during Hurricane Harvey when my mother had to have an emergency C-section due to the stress the storm had caused her. I am lucky to be alive! My foster family describes me as a lap-loving dog who enjoys cuddles and kisses. I have been raised around other dogs and cats of a variety of different ages and sizes. I am now at HSSET so that I can get more exposure and find my fur-ever family! If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out an adoption application and come visit me at HSSET today!

One was surrendered to the shelter when his family lost everything during Hurricane Harvey, but he has so much love to give! One is not your usual Labrador retriever; he is calm and gentle in nature. One prefers sitting at your feet and enjoying your company, rather than chasing ducks or swimming. Don’t get us wrong — he is an active pupper who does enjoy a nice lap around the pool, and enjoys playing with his canine and human friends! A truly incredible dog, One has a giant heart full of love that he is waiting to give to a family. Could that family be yours?

Marshall

Meet Marshall, a beautiful male American Staffordshire terrier. He weighs 74 pounds and came in July 24 as a stray. However, he is extremely friendly and loves people. Marshall has shared playtime with other shelter dogs and gets along just fine. He showed no interest when a cat “fluffed” by him. Marshall is very much the gentleman when walking on a leash. A home visit is required on all American Staffordshire terrier adoption requests prior to approval. The adoption fee of $120 covers the neuter, DHLP, bordatella, rabies, flea treatment and worming.
