"We're keeping our chin up; we're without power and water but Houston has been extremely supportive," she says. "We are extremely low on kitty litter, blankets and towels and water."
She says conditions are "crowded but comfortable," and if they get too packed in there's a ready list of people who've said they will temporarily board animals.
If you want to donate supplies, just take them by the HHS headquarters, 14700 Almeda Road, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
