How to Help Hurricane Harvey Victims

 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey.

 

“This event is unprecedented,” the National Weather Service said on Sunday. “All impacts are unknown and beyond anything experienced.”

Here is how you can help!

The Salvation Army and American Red Cross currently are taking donations to help with hurricane relief efforts. The Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group is also seeking donations to help those hit the hardest in the coastal region.

Don’t forget about all the pets affected by Hurricane Harvey! Austin Pets Alive has transported over 200 animals and are expecting an influx of animals as flooding get worse. They are currently looking for financial donations to help take care of the new animals, looking for volunteers and looking for people willing to adopt pets to help alleviate crowding in the shelters. Austin Pets Alive also needs the following things donated ASAP to help with the several hundred displaced pets:

  • Donated (not loaned) Medium & Large Wire Dog Crates
  • Sheets (can be used)
  • Bath & Beach Towels (can be used)
  • Aluminum Food Bowls
