Caring for the Conroe 200!
Montgomery County Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Wayne Mack awarded custody of more than 200 horses rescued last week from Calico Dairy in Conroe, TX to the Houston SPCA. The horses were rescued from horrific cruelty. Nearly all of them suffered from a wide range of health problems, including emaciation, abscesses and open wounds, and deformed feet. The majority appear to have never received hoof care or hands-on contact. Their road to recovery will be long. Their physical ailments and wounds must be treated. And, they will have to learn to trust the gentleness of a human touch. We are launching "Caring for the Conroe 200" to help us buy food, provide veterinary care and medicine, and give hope and a second chance at life to animals in need. You can help by donating online to The Cinderella Fund which helps the Houston SPCA rescue, rehabilitate and rehome over 10,000 animals each year.
Remember Kirby the kitten who was saved from a harrowing experience in a highway drain on 610 at Kirby Drive? We rushed to his aid, using every available resource to keep this sweet kitty from falling to the street below while also keeping him from darting into rush-hour freeway traffic! Thanks to the attentive care of our veterinary staff and some good old fashioned TLC, Kirby is fully recovered from his scary adventure and ready to find his forever home. Watch the daring rescue!
