Bastrop County Animal Shelter gets much-needed donations from H-E-B

Bastrop County

BASTROP, Texas (KXAN) — Parts of the walls at the Bastrop County Animal Control and Shelter are still missing after a drinking fountain malfunctioned and flooded the shelter in June.

The shelter says the water caused $50,000 worth of damage and volunteers worked feverishly to get the furry animals into loving homes while crews assessed the damage.

On Monday, H-E-B surprised the shelter with a $5,000 check and dropped off more than 1,300 pounds worth of animal food and $2,000 worth of cat litter.

“When we saw how much damage was done we knew we wanted to definitely help out,” said H-E-B spokesperson Annie Flowers.
