ON THE ROAD TO A NEW HOME-Rescue partnerships provide hope for overlooked pets

While Hurricane Harvey was devastating to our city, it did bring a ray of sunshine to the rescue community as the plight of so many homeless animals was blasted all over the US. Many out of state rescue organization reached out to the Gulf Coast to help and that help is still continuing today. Since Harvey through the end of March, we have transferred 256 dogs and cats to out of state rescues that have been carefully screened to match up with our standards and requirements for adoptable homes. While large breed dogs and puppies are a "dime a dozen" here, they are sought after by adopters in the northern regions ot the US including the Pacific Northwest, and the Great Lakes region as well as the East Coast. With harse winters and strict spay neuter ordinances, most shelters in these area have many empty foster homes and kennels. We have partnered with organizations whose values and requirements align with our, to send animals who languished for months in our area, to organizations where they were adopted before they arrived. While in most cases, transportation is free to us, each shelter requires vetting ranging from animals being fully vetted (spay/neutered, all vaccines and heartworm free) to having inital vaccines and a health certificate. SInce many of the animals going have been overlooked here, most are fully vetted with $150-750 in vetting when they leave. We cannot continue to ready these animals for transport without some support from the public.

$40 supplies a Health Certificate and exam
$85 provides a spay surgery
$65 provides a neuter surgery
$15 provides a Rabies vaccine

If you would like to help with the costs of sending these animals to new home please donate today! Every dollar helps
