Hurricane Harvey – Animals Need Help Too

Posted by on Monday, August 28th, 2017 in Uncategorized

In the wake and aftermath of Hurricane Harvey our furry friends need our help too. Many families had to leave in a hurry, some without their pets, and some not knowing where to go were forced to turn over their family pet to a shelter. Not just dogs and cats but livestock too.

Austin Pets Alive (only 5 minutes from the ViaGen office), since Saturday morning has taken in over 235 animals to their shelter.  The SPCA of Texas received over 123 cats from the Corpus Christi area last week alone. In the coming days, even more animals will be arriving not only to Austin Pets Alive and the SPCA but other shelters in the area as well.

How can you help? Here is a list of immediate needs that any of these shelters would be more than happy to accept:

  • Monetary Donations
  • Fostering
  • Leashes
  • Collars
  • Cat Litter
  • Cat Beds
  • Dog Beds
  • Dog Treats
  • Kitten and Puppy Dry Food
  • Wet Cat Food
  • Litter Boxes
  • Crates
