Thousands of lives in Texas were affected this past weekend during Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the disaster. There has been an outpouring of love and support to help the people of Houston, but we cannot forget the animals that are also in need.
Some of our Instagram famous friends including Harlow and Sage, Goldens Glee, Ella Bean and Wolfgang2242 have taken to social media to spread awareness on how you can join the efforts to save the animals.
Check out the organizations listed below to find more details on how you can get involved with the animal relief efforts by donating your time or resources.
Austin Pets Alive has already helped to save over 330 animals from the floods, but they still need your immediate assistance. Donations of any kind are greatly appreciated and they are actively looking for foster families for the animals. You can find more information about these options on their website.
SPCA of Texas has been working hard to safely transport all pets affected by the storm to North Texas. They have posted an Amazon Wish List for products and supplies they still in need. Please consider donating if you are able.
Dallas Dogrrr partnered with Operation Save Tall Tails Animal Rescue. They have been updating their Instagram profile throughout the Hurricane with news on where rescue dogs are located and what the organization is in need of to keep the relief coming. They will be sending out a wish list once they have secured all animals and have a shipping address for the supplies to be sent. Please continue to visit their page for new information.
UPDATE AS OF 7am on HARVEY FLOOD VICTIMS IN Hankamer, TX 775602. A message from Kat: “– Please pray for us and our dogs. Its non-stop raining here. We are laying on a picnic table near all the dogs we could get. Trying to catch a little sleep to regain strength for tomorrow. Please pray to whatever God or spiritual being you pray too. And may God forgive us for the choices we had to make today.” I want to address some false rumors, although The Chambers County Sheriff department has most certainly helped with making 1 trip to get a handful of dogs which is so very much appreciated, in no way shape or form are the animals safe. Last night Kevin and Megan went back very very late and it was unsafe, in the matter of 1 hour the water rose 3 inches. Dogs and Pigs still remain at the property and another dam may be released this morning. More boats were to go back out this morning. Our very own Kay has her trailer and is approaching as we speak in communication with the sheriff but the conditions are pretty wild right now. Park where they are located with the animals: Whites Park Pavillion off I-10 exit 61 Anahuac TX I’m told they need these supplies right away if anyone is near the area: Dog bowls, leashes, Collars Cleaning supplies, Blankets, Large sized crates, Water, Warm clothing for adults. If you are currently nearby and can help Kevin and Kat walk dogs, bring food, supplies phone charges please do not wait. Go now! If you have a boat and are near by, please do not wait and go to the house. Kat is one of the most True Grit, compassionate and efficient rescuers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Kat is responsible for saving thousands of dogs through out the years. We need to come together and make sure that Operation Save Tall Tails Animal Rescue will keep going. Please share and tag. Please donate at : Dallasdogrrr.org (funds will go to Tall Tails Animals) We will be doing a wishlist and when a shipping address is final we will let y’all know. Please remain patient with the updates– Kat and Kevin are bogged down and we are communicating with Alicia right now. #dallasdogrrr #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #hurricaneharvey
