A letter from our President

Pup 1 Pup 2 Pup 3

I want to thank every person and business who helped support us during our initial and ongoing efforts to help the rescue community after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

We are proud to share that through our various partnerships, we were able to move 94 animals out of Texas and the surrounding areas. Our trip directly to Houston netted us more than 36 volunteer hours at the NRG Stadium with Best Friends (where more than 400 dogs have been moved to await possible owners finding them), a moving truck full of dog and cat food donated directly from I & Love & You to the animals at Houston Pets Alive, and the subsequent evacuation of 27 animals from both of those rescues.

Our dedication to the animals and people impacted by this storm will continue into the following year. We anticipate seeing hundreds more animals influx the national rescue scene as animals are declared strays and owners do not come forward (or have to relinquish because of housing situations.)

In all the sadness, we do have several happy endings. Two of the canines we pulled from Houston had been in the shelter system since the beginning of April. Both dogs were lucky enough to find new homes during the PetSmart National Adoption Weekend in mid-September. This means that because of the storm, for the first time in their adult lives they are sleeping in a home as someone's beloved pet. Pictured is Gypsy, a 10 month old mix that now has a little girl to love her.

Many of the animals we have transported have found adoptive families, and we continue to provide care to those still looking while they are with us.

If you are interested in helping, we always need foster families as well as volunteers. Please email to be directed to the correct person. Donations are used 100% towards the care of our animals, and are fully tax deductible. Click the button below to donate using PayPal.
