Now, more than ever, Texas needs our help. Hurricane Harvey devastated many parts of the state, but all of America is coming together to rebuild.
It is inspiring to see so many from all over the country donate their time, money, and resources to relief efforts in Texas. The courageous actions of so many have inspired me to help, which is why I’ve been working with Animal Aid USA.
Animal Aid is a volunteer-based organization whose mission is to create a lifeline for unwanted and abandoned animals. To date, this organization has saved more than 18,000 animals.
I, along with a group of volunteers from New Jersey, traveled with Animal Aid to Texas to assist in relief efforts.
Rescuing Animals in Texas
In Texas, we are visiting shelters and rescuing surrendered or unwanted dogs. The animals we are rescuing were up for adoption before Harvey hit.
While here, we help shelter organizers clean and prepare the spaces for incoming animals.
Our hope is that animals currently being picked up in Harvey have owners that are looking for them. Many pets go missing in the wake of national disasters like Harvey, when cities are evacuated or residents must flee due to flooding.
After rescuing these dogs, we will transport them to no-kill shelters on our way back to New jersey.
Consider Making a Donation
So many animals are in danger as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Our rescue efforts are meaningful, but expensive. If you have the means, please consider making a donation to Animal Aid USA.
I can guarantee that 100% of the donated funds go directly towards saving animals.
