Hurricane Harvey: As a Team We Can Do More

Hurricane Harvey:  As a Team We Can Do More

To our Wonderful Supporters, 

We'd like to thank you for helping us help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Because of your support, we were able to cover medical expenses of the displaced animals who sought shelter at our facility while their owners got back on their feet.  Medical expenses covered heartworm prevention and treatment, spay and neutering for those who were not, while tending to medical injuries requiring immediate attention.  

For those animals that did not stay with us directly, we handed out crates for cats and dogs along with food to support families in need.  

Today marks the official end of the 2017 hurricane season, and we thought it would be appropriate to end this specific campaign.  We ask that you still continue to support our wonderful shelter through our main project via GlobalGiving, where we provide general shelter updates quarterly. Follow the link below for more information! 

As always, thank you for your continued support of our shelter!

We have been asked to take in as many displaced animals as possible, and we are doing whatever we can to support our friends in Southeast Texas.  We have already taken in a few displaced cats and dogs, and because our shelter is small, we are asking for your help.  Many of you have responded to our call by submitting foster applications.  We are eternally grateful for your support as it demonstrates how committed our small, but mighty network is! 

If you are able, we ask that you consider opening your home to foster a displaced cat or dog.  Through our foster program, we provide medical care and food, crates, leashes, and other necessary items…all you need to do is provide shelter and love!  The funding that results from this campaign will go toward assisting our foster volunteers with this effort. 



This week, we have been busy collecting supplies like crates, foods, leashes, etc. and handing them out to directly affected shelters.  Collected supplies will be allocated to our fosters as well as neighboring shelters aiding in this major rescue effort.

We have also welcomed Luna, a gorgeous 6-month old Weimaraner.  Her family lost everything in Rockport, TX, and they have asked us to keep her safe until they can get back on their feet (hopefully within a month).  We have also welcomed 3 cats from Rockport, TX as well, looking for a temporary place to crash while their humans get back on their feet.  A good Samaritan found two Chihuahua babies floating in the Houston floods, and they have been brought to our shelter.  They are now safe in a foster home.

These people are doing the right thing despite the circumstances; they are taking care of those innocent animals who do not have a voice and are often forgotten in times of disaster.  These are the same people that have lost everything and have nowhere to turn.  They have done their part, now let’s do ours. 

Thank you for your support!
