With the recent storms and flooding, hundreds of pets have been displaced. Shelters are overflowing with unidentified pets. Some of these pets are from the Beaumont area and were separated from their owners during evacuation. Now they are being housed in Houston with no way to identify many of them. The pets who were microchipped and properly registered were able to be reunited with their owners. Collars and tags are helpful, but can be lost. We strongly encourage pet owners to microchip their pets and always update their information if any changes are made to phone numbers or addresses.
