COLDSPRING — Constable Sam Houston, San Jacinto County’s animal control officer, now has a place to take the numerous strays he encounters but could use a little help at the new Animal Control Shelter.

The new facility has been open since the end of March at 5480 FM 2025, near the intersection of FM 2025 and FM 2666 by the DPS headquarters.

The building, which has been under construction for the last two years, boasts 32 pens, but Houston said all are not useable because some are open to the weather and rainwater blows in.

He said that hopefully the county can get funds to put up weather blocks, but for now they only can use them temporarily if weather permits.

There are no employees, but Houston said his wife Sandra, who owns Waggin’ Tails Dog Rescue, has a few steady volunteers and three employees who help out.

“We’d like to appeal to the community to call me or Waggin’ Tails, fill out the forms and come and help,” he said, and those interested can call Sandra Houston at (281) 450-3676 for volunteers.

Donations of pet food would be helpful as well, Houston said.

Houston said they will continue to work with Houston humane society to provide regular spay/neuter clinics and vaccination clinics, and there are plans to hold adoption days twice a month.

Plans also are being made for an open house sometime in May.
