An estimated 600,000 pets were killed during Hurricane Harvey. And, 77 people lost their lives. Harvey left most of Texas in ruins and hundreds of thousands of pets separated from their parents and countless other animals homeless fending for themselves on the street. When we first saw the images from Hurricane Harvey, we immediately went into action and created a nationwide campaign to help raise funds for the rescues on the ground. Our partners at Corridor Rescue were one of those rescues affected by the hurricane. Although Harvey destroyed their kennels and homes, volunteers from Corridor took to the streets to save animals.
The video you see is of volunteers who found a mother and her entire litter of puppies in the hurricane aftermath. These volunteers risked their lives to save this family in need. This was just one of hundreds of animals Corridor Rescue saved. They spent weeks scouring the streets. The animals that were displaced were reunited with their owners and the pets that were homeless were flown across the nation to people opening up their homes to these four legged victims. Corridor was one of 15 of our partners on the ground in Texas. This is the power behind a Hendrick and Co. animal-saving tees. Because of your purchase from our Hurricane Harvey Awareness campaign you raised over $10,000 for volunteers, rescues and shelters. Because of you, countless lives were saved. We are humbled and honored to have your support.
