We’ve been worried like you about all the animals – horses, dogs, cats, donkeys, pigs, goats, sheep and more – and their people left stranded by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Over the past few days, we’ve gathered a list of organizations we know are reputable and that have ongoing operations on the ground to save the animals displaced by the hurricane.
This catastrophic tragedy will continue for the next several weeks and months and as victims start return to their homes, donations are sorely needed. Please donate even a small amount because every bit helps.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many are looking for ways that they can help the people and animals affected. Here’s how you can help during this urgent time.
