TAKE ACTION: Hurricane Harvey Animal Victims Need Our Help!

(HURRICANE HARVEY/ANIMAL RESCUE) Being the most powerful storm to hit the mainland in over a decade, Hurricane Harvey has completely wreaked havoc throughout Texas and Louisiana. To put things in perspective, an estimated 20 trillion gallons dumped on the 2.3 million-person city of Houston since Harvey came ashore. Some parts of Texas received as much as 50 inches of rain, causing extensive property damage that could reach $190 billion. The torrential rain, devastating winds, and widespread flooding has resulted in 39 human casualties and driven over one million people and their pets out of their flooded homes. Fortunately, an extensive network of animal rescue groups from all over the U.S. are rushing to provide aid as first responders are working round-the-clock to save stranded pets. In Houston alone, there likely are thousands upon thousands of displaced pets in need. These animals desperately need our help. Please consider making a donation, no matter how small, to make this life-saving work possible. -- Global Animal

Hurricane Harvey: How To Help Pets In Need

(HELP ANIMALS/ANIMAL RESCUE) HOUSTON -- In the same type of catastrophic flooding that beset Texas during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, record rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey has battered the nation's fourth largest city this past week. The flooding has left 25 dead and caused more than 30,000 people to flee their flooded homes. While many pets are left behind, animal rescuers remain hopeful that animals will stand a better chance than they did 12 years ago during Hurricane Katrina, which left an estimated 600,000 animals killed or stranded. Thanks to the passage of the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards which forever changed the way animals are treated during emergency situations, first responders can now rescue pets just as they save people. Efforts to save animal victims are well underway as floodwaters continue to rise. Global Animal Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that funds emergency animal rescue worldwide, is collecting donations to disperse between vetted organizations working on the ground in the affected areas to help with medical costs for injured animals, boarding and food, and reuniting lost pets with their guardians. Please consider supporting the efforts to save animals in critical peril.

Heroes Of The Flood: How Two Vets Saved 33 Dogs In Louisiana

(ANIMAL RESCUE/NATURAL DISASTER RELIEF) Animal rescue efforts are still underway following the Great Flood of 2016. The Humane Society of Louisiana put out a call for help after the Louisiana floods devastated the Livingston Parish region. Dogs were found stranded on the roof of the flooded Denham Springs Animal Shelter, but luckily Dr. Liza Ledet and Ashley Geoghegan, two veterinarians from the Mandeville Animal Hospital, came to the rescue. The two vets and their staff members are being credited with saving the lives of more than 30 dogs rescued from the Louisiana floodwaters. This week, Jeff Dorson of the Humane Society of Louisiana thanked the dedicated vets by presenting them each with a special "Heroes of the Flood" award for their noble efforts. Not only did they save 33 animal lives, but they are also committed to caring for the animals--out-of-pocket---until they're adopted. "We had 17 dogs that were just rescued from the flood that needed immediate help, and who could help us,"Jeff Dorson said. "Their answers were, 'We can. Just bring them in and we'll figure it out.'" Thanks to Global Animal donors like you, so far we've distributed over $2,200 to help animals affected by the floods. Funds are being dispersed between the Humane Society of Louisiana (HSL) and Companion Animal Alliance of Baton Rouge (CAABR) to assist with field rescue operations and sheltering services.

HELP: Pets In Need After U.S. Tornado Outbreak

(EMERGENCY ANIMAL RESCUE) Early last week, a ferocious storm system tore through Central and Southern U.S., killing at least 38 people and destroying hundreds of homes across six states. For three days, dozens of tornadoes and widespread flooding with hurricane force winds moved through parts of the Plains, Midwest, and South. Arkansas and Mississippi were among the hardest hit states. Amid tornado recovery and search and rescue efforts to ensure human safety, animal rescue operations are ongoing.
