Texas Dogs Have Arrived

Please help the animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Click here to donate.

Update: 9/15: Look at these beautiful babies you helped us save! 38 dogs arrived last night from Texas at around 8pm and were welcomed by our wonderful volunteers! Many went off to foster homes and others will receive lots of love in our kennel. This is just our first TX Hurricane Harvey rescue trip - we will be rescuing more dogs and cats (which didn't make it on this trip). THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us save their lives - we and they are grateful! Please keep an eye on our website over the next couple of weeks... they will be posted as soon as they are ready. Click here or above to see a video of their arrival.
UPDATE: We have sent the first load of food and other pet necessities. The stories are heartbreaking and our rescue friends on the ground are going above and beyond to help as many animals as they can. We are getting ready to welcome our newcomers from this region.
By now, you've seen and heard the devastating news about Hurricane Harvey pummeling Texas with 25 inches of rain. And more rain is expected - another 25 inches in some areas. The floods have left 8 people dead, and thousands homeless and flocking to make-shift shelters. Experts are predicting that the damage will exceed that of Hurricane Katrina.

The animals are suffering too - shelters are overwhelmed and in immediate need of assistance. Our friends in The Woodlands, TX are desperately trying to assist the Montgomery County Animal Control in their efforts to rescue and save the animals of Montgomery County, which is just north of Houston - the area worst hit. They have set up a temporary shelter in a storage facility for rescued animals and to help make room for more, but space is filling up quickly. Many animals have been left behind with no food, water or the possibility of survival unless these Good Samaritans can get to them and save them. Without help, these animals will die.

Pet Rescue has committed to pulling 30-35 animals to safety in the next 10 days, or as soon as transport can be organized. We would also like to send pet food and supplies to the impacted area since the weeks to come will require food, crates, toys, bedding, etc. Any assistance you can provide today will directly help in rescuing these needy animals in Texas.

Please give what you can. Every gift makes a cumulative difference.
Thank you for joining us to support animals in need!
