PRESS Staff Report
The clock is ticking for a number of animals housed at the Port Isabel Animal Shelter. As reported in Thursday’s PRESS, the Laguna Madre Humane Society/Isabel Garcia Animal Shelter faces a grave overpopulation problem.
According to Laguna Madre Humane Society Board President Beth Fedigan, the City of Port Isabel received notice from the state that the shelter was egregiously overpopulated. As of last Wednesday, the shelter housed 48 animals, which is about 20 more than the law allows for the shelter’s space.
“We are getting a few animals out (since last week’s PRESS article), but not enough. We are still overcrowded, and need help,” Fedigan said this weekend.
