If there was ever a group of people deserving of credit for
their hard work, dedication and community involvement,
it is the Bayou Animal Services. So when we heard that
they were being awarded $500,000 for a new shelter
from Petco, we weren’t surprised. After Harvey, their
population swelled to well over 260 animals. They were
able to find original owners for 178 and only lost two after
Harvey and by the end of the month the animal population
had been winnowed down to 37 animals.
PETCO FOUNDATION INVESTS IN LIFESAVING
WORK OF BAYOU ANIMAL SERVICES. GRANT
OF $500,000 WILL EXTEND EFFORTS TO
SAVE MORE ANIMAL LIVES IN DICKINSON,
SANTA FE, AND CLEAR LAKE SHORES.
DICKINSON – BAYOU ANIMAL SERVICES
TODAY ANNOUNCED IT HAS BEEN AWARDED
A $500,000 GRANT FROM THE PETCO
FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT CONSTRUCTION
OF A NEW ANIMAL SHELTER AT ITS 3120
DEATS ROAD LOCATION.
The Petco Foundation grant will provide a capital investment
to build a new animal shelter for Bayou Animal
Services. In addition to the added kennel space, a new
shelter will include: upgraded cat condos, a free roaming
cat room, outdoor dog play yards for large dog playgroups,
and a larger facility with separation for the intake
and medical areas.
“We are incredibly grateful for the generous grant provided
by the Petco Foundation. This grant is a recognition
of the tremendously hard work put in by the animal control
officers at Bayou Animal Services during Hurricane
Harvey and every day they come in to work. We can’t
thank the Petco Foundation enough for its commitment
to Bayou Animal Services and the cities of Dickinson,
Santa Fe, and Clear Lake Shores,” said Dickinson City
Administrator Ron Morales.
Following Hurricane Harvey, the Petco Foundation committed
more than $3.5 million to support recovery and
long-term rebuilding efforts in Texas and Louisiana.
“Supporting organizations dedicated to saving animal
lives during disasters is just one of the ways the Petco
Foundation works to create a lifesaving nation for animals,”
said Susanne Kogut, Petco Foundation executive
director. “Our goal is to help under-resourced organizations
substantially increase the number of lives saved in
their communities and we are proud to invest in an organization
like Bayou Animal Services who works hard to
save animal lives during times of disaster and every day.”
Bayou Animal Services is a non-profit local government
corporation formed in 2016 to provide animal control and
sheltering services for its originating cities of Clear Lake
Shores, Dickinson and Santa Fe. Since its founding,
Bayou Animal Services has facilitated the adoption of
over 1200 animals.
