Saving Paws rescues homeless dogs from Texas

Brought Houston dog food, returned with adoptable pets

Appleton (WFRV) One local pet rescue who went to Houston with supplies for the animals left in the floodwaters of Harvey is back home tonight. And they didn't come alone.

Saving Paws Animal Rescue  filled two vans  with pet food and supplies donated by caring community members and left on Friday. They arrived in Texas Saturday night.

The donations are desperately needed. Houston K-911 Rescue has been out rescuing as many animals as they can, "They were so grateful they were crying they just couldn't believe how much supplies that we, and I told them you only got about a third of the supplies that we have," said Glenda Stadler, Saving Paws Animal Rescue.

Sunday night they brought home  seven dogs and six puppies from the Houston area rescues. 

These are dogs that were already homeless before harvey- to make room for lost pets, "The dogs that we did bring back were out of their foster program both of those rescues are foster based as well so the dogs we took out of there opens them up so they can bring in more dogs that are out on the streets," said Glenda Stadler, Saving Paws Animal Rescue.

The dogs and puppies will be up for adoption at Saving Paws.

The shelter says they plan to make more trips - and are still accepting donations.
