UPDATE 10:30 PM
Officials with Grand Companions Humane Society out of Fort Davis have confirmed with CBS 7 that they will be taking over all of Midland SPCA’s pets.
The SPCA's funds have been quickly running out, forcing them to find a place to house their pets and shut their doors for good this Saturday.
The thirty to forty animals will be making their way to Fort Davis over the weekend.
Grand Companions is a no-kill facility but does have to turn pets away when they are full.
Officials at Grand Companions say they are happy to help and will be looking at putting a small shelter where the SPCA is currently in Midland.
Sources tell us Midland SPCA is closing its doors on Saturday.
We called a board member at Midland SPCA to confirm and ask why, they responded only by saying they would be sending out a statement tomorrow.
According to our source the employees were given a two day notice that the doors were shutting.
Now the question people are asking is why? And what will happen to the animals?
