|Our Animal Rescue Team is on the ground right now helping animals impacted by the massive flooding and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Upon our arrival in Texas City, we learned that the most urgent needs were in Dickinson and League City, where our help was requested by officials. My team is conducting animal search and rescue missions with Dickinson Animal Control. We are responding in flooded areas where roads remain impassible to rescue pets from their deluged homes.
The flooding is so severe that road closures will have our team marooned in place until some flooding subsides.
But we’ve purchased food and crates to temporarily house animals who are rescued from the field—and we’ll ensure they have a soft and warm place to rest.
We’re also transporting animals who were available for adoption before the storm in San Antonio to other states to make room for displaced pets.
Thank you so much for your support, and please stay tuned for another update tomorrow.
