The animal shelter in Bastrop County is currently at maximum capacity and although this is not abnormal, the fact that the community is struggling to rebuild could be a problem.
According to shelter officials, the wildfire caused more than 300 animals to arrive at the shelter. With the help of other shelters, all of the animals were reunited with their owners. Now, a few months after the fires, the animal shelter is full again.
Officials are asking that rescue crews come to Bastrop County in order to assist in helping relocate the animals in the shelter. Because the community is in rebuilding stage, homeowners who may have had dogs may be waiting until their homes are set up, which will hurt the number of adoptions in Bastrop.
The wildfires in Bastop County caused severe damage and destroyed over a thousand homes. If you or a loved one lost your home as a result of the fire, contact the Bastrop wildfire insurance lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-639-8460.
