HOUSTON (KTRK) -- An animal shelter in Waller County is facing a dire situation, thanks to the flooding weather.
About 56 dogs and five horses on a 20 acre "no kill" shelter in Waller County were in danger, according to their owner. The low-lying property is flooded and she's asking any kennels or people who can transport and care for the animals to please help.
Dogtown Ranch and Sanctuary rehabs unwanted dogs, which would be euthanized elsewhere, and many are pit bulls. Foster homes are needed.
Help has arrived for some of the animals. The Washington Animal Clinic took 10 dogs. Two horses went to the Brazos Valley Equine Hospital.
The other horses are OK for now, but another six dogs need to be taken to a clinic. Hay is needed for the shelter as well.
No Paws Left Behind has donated $3,000 to the sanctuary.
The shelter's address is 45912 Qualls Road, Hempstead 77448. If you would like to help, please call 979-826-2480.
