Hurricane Harvey Leaves Hundreds of Pets Stranded

32 comments

Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas and lingered over the already inundated cities, flooding neighborhoods and roadways and forcing thousands of people—and their pets—to flee their homes.

Unfortunately, some pets were left behind when owners were forced to evacuate and were turned away by shelters that do not allow animals. These beloved pets are in need of rescue, but luckily, there are caring heroes, ordinary citizens, braving the flood waters to ensure that the animals in need are being rescued.

 

Here, six cats are rescued from the rushing torrents. The felines were found in the Houston area and were safely transported to the shelter where they received the help they desperately needed.

In an effort to avoid some of the mistakes made in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago, animal safety advocates have joined forces to clear shelters in the Houston area and beyond to make space for animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey - even wildlife in need are being rescued.

The national effort to clear shelters to make room for the pets lost or displaced by Harvey involves flying the homeless animals already in the shelters to shelters in other parts of the country, such as New Jersey.  The huge effort is being undertaken by Humane Society of the United States, Wings of Rescue, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, GreaterGood.org, the Best Friends Animal Society and other animal rescue and welfare organizations.

The animal shelters in Texas that are still up and running are taking in hundreds of displaced dogs and cats and are expecting more and more as the rescue efforts increase. 

Austin Pets Alive! Is moving as many displaced animals as possible into its shelter and is working on adopting out the animals currently residing there, so it has more room for Harvey evacuees. The rescue is looking for financial donations and potential adopters, learn more here.

  • Backup Recovery

    After losing my 2.06 BTC in2020, I thought that was it. I mean, there are hardly any cases of successful recoveries.But fast-forward to 2022-2024, it hit its ultimate boom and I instantly knew I wasnot ready to give up on my bitcoin. So, I started researching known andwell-rated hackers on the internet. Also trimmed them down by removing those inthe red-police notice for not being legit hackers (scammers too). One DECODEHACKERS stood on top of my list. I had to trust my gut and dig deep with thisone. So, I hit them up via their email; Decodehackers@gmail.com I am glad I did. In two days,they had cracked my situation and transferred back the BTC to my wallet. The processturned out smoother than I expected. Now, why are you so afraid of taking yourfirst step to your redemption? Try them out as well and share your testimony aswell to help others. Thank you so much DECODE HACKERS.

    My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2021 but was diagnosed in 2022. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn’t walk without a walker, or a power chair. I had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then I decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Dr.GODSENT YARE’S herbal healing home, It has made a tremendous difference for me. You can reach out to him by email: dryareherbalcurehome@gmail.com  I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight, and others. To everyone Suffering from ALS/MND, some form of mental health or vicious cycle, you are not alone. Is ok to talk about it. The best thing for your mind is to talk. If you know someone suffering, simply be there for them. I promise to keep on keeping on sharing this awesome remedy by Dr.GODSENT YARE to everyone everywhere. Sharing is Caring.

    I had doubts because I was scared of being defrauded again online, but HACK MAVENS changed my perspective and gave me reasons to own a home. They did a very superb job in fixing my credit. They had my bankruptcy cleared and my score boosted from 525 to 788 excellent score across the three major bureaus. I strongly recommend HACK MAVENS to you reading this. One thing I like so much is that, they were able to achieve it all within 5 days. Don’t hesitate to contact them via; HACKMAVENS (AT) GMAIL DOT COM / +1 (209) 417 – 1957. They are second to none!
