Animal rescue groups and public officials throughout the US are working to save pets and other animals as they continue to be displaced in the wake of Harvey.
At least 100 homeless dogs that were awaiting adoption in San Antonio, Texas, shelters are being relocated to facilities in the northeast to free up space for animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
We have several vehicles including our disaster rig, and have five MOUs (with more on the way) with Texas cities and agencies including Texas City, Corpus Christi, Houston Humane Society and the SPCA of Texas.
As weather experts predict more rainfall in the coming days and residual effects from the storm, shelters are seeking the public's help in preparing for the influx of animals who will be displaced from the bad weather. We are also working with the Houston Humane Society and other local groups to relieve the pressure on overcrowded shelters.
