Some Cats, Dogs Headed to McKinney Shelter

McKINNEY, Texas (AP) - More than 100 dogs and cats sheltered in Beaumont after Hurricane Ike will be available for adoption at the SPCA of Texas.

The SPCA late Monday announced 75 dogs and 33 cats were being transported to the group's animal care center in McKinney, about 30 miles north of Dallas.

The animals were at a shelter in Beaumont, and available for adoption. The transfer will allow Beaumont Animal Control to respond to animals in need along the Texas coast.

Hurricane Ike made landfall Saturday.

The SPCA continues its adoption discount on large dogs and adult cats to make room for animals evacuated from the hurricane until further notice.

Admitting departments at both the Dallas and McKinney SPCA locations are closed until further notice to Ike transfers, but adoptions and spay-neuter clinics remain open.
