56 volunteers have arrived or are arriving today to assist Houston SPCA in their effort to support their own shelter staff, support for the wildlife shelter which is part of HSPCA, assist Galveston Island with establishing an Emergency Shelter, assessment of the animal needs and Search & Rescue Efforts.

3 Search & Rescue teams made up of members from the Houston SPCA field services and Code 3 Associates responded to calls for 46 animals.

All team members are taking turns helping with the more than 300 Baby Squirrels that are being cared.
