We’ve taken your calls and received your messages. Your hearts are heavy, and ours are too for our four-legged friends and their companions in Texas. We want you to know: we’re going to help.
On Friday, Sep. 1, we welcomed 38 cats and dogs from animal shelters in affected. The week of Sep. 4, we are taking 5 more dogs from Texas. We are committed to continuing to help as long as there is need.
Our efforts are to help clear their shelters to make room for displaced animals who can hopefully be reunited with their families.
But they cannot get to our safety without you. We need to fund their journey to us, which we are estimating will cost roughly $100 per animal.
Meet a few of our Harvey rescues:
Patience was in flood water up to her neck for 3 days before being rescued from a Texas-affected shelter. As a result, her skin has been irritated, but should hopefully clear up with some medicated shampoo. She is a true survivor and grateful people are out there to rescue these pets in need. She will make the best addition to anyone’s family.

And of course we rescued kitties, too, some of which already found their forevers, like Hailey Sue:
