Valley couple establish animal rescue amid growing number of strays
WESLACO – Stray dogs a big problem in the Rio Grande Valley. Some people even describe it as an epidemic.
A couple started Paws and Strides Rescue a few years ago, rescuing dogs and house them in their backyard, equipped with kennels and beds.
The organization spend thousands of dollars and countless hours every month trying to give these forgotten animals, a better life.
“These are, for a lack of a better word, helpless and voiceless creatures. They need us in order to be able to live,” says Monique Montemayor.
The Palm Valley Animal Society, which is the primary shelter in the Valley, takes in some of the most animals in the nation. Yet, they receive some of the least amount of funds because the money comes from municipal funds.
