Corpus Christi Animal Care Services seeks rescuers and adopters

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Animal Care Services needs the community’s help to make room at their facility after a large pound sent their kennel space beyond capacity.

CCAS staff say they desperately need people who can foster and/or adopt animals to make room for the incoming cats and dogs.

“Due to an unexpected large impoundment last night while assisting the Corpus Christi Police Department, we are in dire need of kennel space,” CCACS staff said in a post on social media. social.

Although animals that have been impounded are not currently available for adoption or rescue tags, many dogs and cats are in dire need of forever homes.

“All of our pets need to be rescued! However, every animal matters and we have no plans to euthanize for space at this time,” CCACS staff said.

Staff say they will welcome adopters and rescue partners to their facility Monday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The CCACS says its goal is to have 10 kennels open by Sunday, May 8. Organizers say all the animals can be seen on PetHarbor: lost, found and adoptable animals.
