Bailey gets a new home!
Because of all the hard work of the City of Port Isabel’s Animal Shelter Staff, Animal Shelter Volunteers, the Friends of the Isabel Y. Garcia Animal Shelter, the Laguna Madre Humane Society, the City of Port Isabel’s Animal Shelter Advisory Committee, Valley Morning Star, Channel 5 News, News Reporter Manuel De La Rosa, and citizens of both the City of Port Isabel and South Padre Island, the Shelter is near reaching its goal of decreasing the animal population.
Over the weekend, Monday and today, people from as far as McAllen, Harlingen, Brownsville and the communities of the Laguna Madre area, have come to adopt, foster and rescue animals. As of today, the dog population has decreased from 110 to 73 and the cat population from 80 to 43. We expect that number to decrease even more by the end of this week.
The City of Port Isabel waived the fee of the adoptions and paid for the vaccinations. Both the Friends of the Isabel Y. Garcia Animal Shelter and the Laguna Madre Humane Society paid for the Spay and Neuter and continue to promote foster care and rescue. This gave the public a chance to adopt the animals at no charge.
The City of Port Isabel Staff continues to update the facility to meet requirements of the state by replacing all wood with vinyl in the cat rooms, ICO room, etc., reducing the cages in the facility and cleaning the brush around the fence adding caliche around the fence to protect the animals from fleas and ticks. The A/C system of the main office and kennels are also being updated.
We are very pleased with this outcome and progress.
Edward P. Meza, City Manager
