Day 5 – Rescue Teams Still Searching

Filed under: Rescues & Transfers — atlantahumanesociety @ 1:31 am

We went back to Galveston today to process more animals still coming in. The more days that pass the hungrier and withdrawn the displaced animals get. Some are so dirty I wonder how they’ve made it this far. I guess it’s their survival instinct, just like ours.

We’ve seen the police and rescue teams go out during the day to retrieve more homeless animals. At times they’ve had to use the catchpoles to retrieve them. It saddens me to see although I know it’s best for the animals and protects the rescue members from being bitten. You can’t blame them for being so scared. Once they’ve gotten food and water they’ve started to warm up to us. I’ve included a couple photos to show you.

Check back with us tomorrow for more updates.
