Welland SPCA helps Houston canines

The Welland SPCA has stepped up to help the four legged residents of Houston affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The local SPCA along with  Toronto based Redemption Dogs sent eight volunteers to Texas to take 35 dogs that had been housed in animal shelters awaiting adoption.

Nine of the dogs are being cared for in Welland.

They will undergo routine checks before being returned to Redemption Dogs and put up for adoption.
