McKINNEY (CBS 11 NEWS) – 181 animals from the Gulf Coast arrived in North Texas today from animal shelters threatened by Hurricane Isaac.

The SPCA of Texas says it received 87 cats and 60 dogs from the Louisiana SPCA in New Orleans.  34 cats from the Humane Society in Gulfport, Mississippi were also transferred to North Texas.

The SPCA of Texas has a “Memorandum of Understanding” with these groups that provides for mutual assistance of this type should any natural disaster strike.

To help make room for the newly arrived dogs and cats, the SPCA of Texas is offering a 50-percent discount off all adoption fees through Friday, August 31. The SPCA of Texas’ two shelters—in Dallas and McKinney—will be also open until 8pm Tuesday and Wednesday.

The SPCA is providing ongoing updates about the rescue efforts on their blog.
