McKINNEY — Eighty-four more animals evacuated from the Gulf Coast hurricane zone arrived at the SPCA of Texas shelter in McKinney on Saturday. They will be available for adoption next week.
The animals were delivered from two shelters in Plaquemines Parish in Louisiana, which was among the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Isaac. The SPCA has taken in more than 200 animals since Tuesday from the Gulf Coast.
SPCA spokeswoman Lacy Ball said they are trying to get the dogs and cats that have been there the longest adopted first.
"The faster we can find our own pets homes, the faster we can get those guys from Louisiana and Mississippi onto our adoption floor so we can find them loving homes as well," she said.
It's not just dogs and cats looking for a new address; there's even a little pig named Bentley.
