Members of the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force returned to St. Louis from Houston with 51 adoptable cats following Hurricane Harvey.

The Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals needed additional space for animals still in need of emergency shelter and care. So, the team from Missouri helped them free up space by transporting 51 adoptable cats from the Houston shelter to Missouri this weekend.

Those cats are in addition to 43 dogs and puppies transported to the Humane Society of Missouri from areas affected by Harvey. 

The Humane Society is also offering a cat adoption special from Sept. 1-3 at their adoption center at 1201 Macklind Avenue.  Adult cats will be available to adopt for free and kittens will cost $75 to adopt.
