PAWS Chicago Animal Shelter will Receive 30+ Dogs Displaced by Houston Tornadoes

PAWS Chicago, the Midwest’s largest comprehensive No Kill animal welfare organization, has partnered with Houston-based Rescued Pets Movement (RPM) and several Houston-area animal shelters and organizations to bring more than 30 dogs displaced by Houston’s severe tornadoes.  

Last week, rare January tornadoes struck the Houston, Texas area, badly damaging and forcing the closure of the Pasadena Animal Shelter in Pasadena, TX. The roof of the shelter was completely ripped from the building, forcing the facility to relocate each animal to other nearby shelters.

PAWS Chicago reached out to the Pasadena shelter and others in the area to rescue almost three dozen dogs and puppies. The transfer will allow the shelters to continue normal operations while also preparing to receive displaced pets as a result of the storms. RPM is coordinating the pickup and transfer of the dogs and will deliver them directly to the PAWS Chicago Medical Center.

These dogs will need homes! Head to for updates and even more adoptable pets.
