Baytown Animal Services Unveils
ASPCA-Funded Emergency Evacuation Trailer

Evac Trailer

The City of Baytown Animal Shelter unveiled its new emergency evacuation trailer to the Baytown City Council on November 17. The trailer is designed to evacuate the animals housed in Baytown Animal Shelter when a natural or manmade disaster strikes, as well as assist other animals impacted by the disaster. The vehicle is equipped to provide extended off-site care for animals post-evacuation.

Funded through general funds, citizen donations and a $25,500 grant from the ASPCA, the trailer contains 44 kennels and can support two animal services officers.

City Manager, Bob Leiper says, “We are so pleased to partner with concerned citizens and the ASPCA on this project. The trailer will insure the safe removal and extended offsite care of domestic stray cats and dogs housed in the Baytown Animal Shelter following an emergency evacuation due to natural or manmade emergencies and provide temporary housing if our own facility is damaged.”

Baytown, Texas is located in the hurricane and flood-prone Gulf Coast region and was devastated by Hurricanes Alicia in 1983, Hurricane Ike in 2008 and flooded by Tropical Storm Allison in 2001. Baytown is also home to the largest domestic petrochemical plant in the nation as well as other major industrial operations.

Animal Services Coordinator, Marti Lechner adds, “The trailer will also serve as a mobile adoption station to increase the number of shelter animal adoptions throughout the city and will be featured at city-sponsored events like Christmas on Texas Avenue.”

“This trailer is equipped to save displaced animals when a disaster hits,” said Dick Green, senior director of ASPCA Disaster Response. “We’re pleased to be in a position to help Baytown Animal Services ensure that animals in the community are prepared for the worst. Every city should include animals in their emergency plans.”

The City of Baytown recognizes the importance of disaster planning and preparation and has a comprehensive emergency management plan as well as agreements in place with partner cities which provide for mutual animal evacuation support.
