In the wake of devastation caused by hurricane’s Havery, Irma, and Maria over the past few months, we have seen cities and suburbs flattened, lives destroyed and hundreds of thousands of animals displaced and abandoned. With local shelters running understaffed, over capacity and more animals arriving each day, Little Shelter is continuing our relief efforts to help the overwhelming amount of animals in need of placement.
As the last of our current hurricane Harvey dogs went up for adoption, a transport arrived to Little Shelter from Florida with dogs and kittens from hurricane affected areas. Due to the need for space in the local shelters, these animals were scheduled to be euthanized until Little Shelter stepped in. This is just one of a few transports we have in the works over the next couple of months to help our friends down south.
YOU can help, donate to Little Shelter’s youcaring campaign to help us care for these special animals. Your donations help us continue to schedule transports to rescue more dogs and cats from affected areas and to provide for the ones who have just arrived. Each of the animals that arrived will need medical care before being available for adoption, in addition to needing food/beds/toys/treats/ect.
We are asking for donations to help us cover the expenses as we continue our efforts of helping our friends in Texas, Florida and other hurricane affected areas.
When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, no one could have predicted the amount of destruction it would cause. Many cities in Texas were left completely underwater and in ruins. After the storm settled and rescue groups could get into the affected areas, a team of Little Shelter staff set off with relief supplies for dogs and cats affected by Hurricane Harvey. Little Shelter spent days of communicating back and forth with animal shelters and rescue teams coordinating rescue. Seven dogs were found in need of a safe haven to make room for more lives to be saved. Little Shelter immediately agreed to take the dogs and prepared one of our transport vans.
