Central Texas was deluged with rain in May, and during the Memorial Day weekend, flash floods, tornadoes and thunderstorms flooded many homes and businesses. Dogs in an Austin TX animal shelter were submerged up to their bellies, and water began seeping into the cats’ area. The marketing manager, Amanda Potter-Laycock, snapped a photo and posted it on the shelter’s facebook. “WE NEED FOSTERS NOW.” The outpouring of the community of Austin was amazing– people lined up, and 65 dogs and 30 cats were fostered. Many were not returned!
