Local organizations dedicated to providing shelter to animals and helping curb overpopulation of strays recently underwent state inspections.
The Port Isabel Animal Shelter was inspected by the state last week and was found to be overcrowded as far as useable runs are concerned. The shelter must find places for 13 dogs or they have no choice but to euthanize them. These 13 dogs have to be out of the shelter as soon as possible since the state inspector can return at any moment and will close down the entire facility if it is not in compliance, shelter organizers said.
In order to prevent this, the Laguna Madre Humane Society is holding an adoptathon at The Garden in Lighthouse Square during Market Day on Saturday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
