Top Inspirational photos from Hurricane Harvey
Even before Hurricane Harvey started to wreak its savage upon Texas, our rescue partners have been hard working endless nights and long days to save the animals. They are out on the streets rescuing strays, out on boats searching for the abandoned, looking under homes for scared cats and dogs, creating make-shift kennels to house even more animals, distributing food and pet supplies to the shelters and caring for the wounded. Dallas DogRRR volunteers even saved scores of animals housed at a nearby shelter that had been entirely flooded. San Antonio Pets Alive is out with their mobile transport unit. And, Austin Pets Alive has taken in 1,000 animals and making daily transport trips.
