Houston NPR affiliate KUHF-FM 88.7 recently covered SNAP efforts to address the plight of animals in Houston's infamous "corridor of cruelty." Six abandoned dogs were rescued from the area on Monday, February 23, 2009. Ms. Deborah Hoffman and SNAP trapped and sterilized the animals. Ms. Hoffman, who is a member of the PAWS Houston animal rescue organization, is arranging to place the animals in foster homes through that organization. PAWS will then attempt to find permanent homes for them. Only dogs deemed suitable for adoption can be rescued through the program, which is funded by a generous grant from the Glasgow Foundation. Three additional visits to the area are planned during the coming months.
