Photo by Betty Walter of Long Drive Dog and Cat Hospital in Houston. Here’s the caption from Betty’s facebook page: To these amazing guys that help me and some of my neighbors dogs that I rescued. I was worried there was too many dogs on the boat and it would tipped over. I told them I would stay behind and for them to make 2 trips. They said NO we are taking all and you. We had 21 dogs on this boat. No place for any humans on this boat. We had to walk in water over my head to get out.
Please I am going to need help if you can donate. paypal.me/betty23
So many people and animals in need. I’m so glad Betty was able to find help to get her dogs out.
With Harvey coming onshore in Texas, and looking like he’s there to stay for awhile, my thoughts turned to evacuation plans. If you stay in place, the American Red Cross recommends you plan on help not reaching you for at least three days after a disaster. That means you need food, water, medications, and supplies, not just for yourself, but for your animals, as well. So, here’s my question: have you planned for what you will do in the event of a disaster?
If you haven’t yet found a place to ride out Hurricane Harvey, please be advised the Red Cross is opening a shelter that will accommodate your pets. The Weather Channel isn’t offering the shelter location, but I can give you this contact information for the Coastal Bend chapter: Continue reading Red Cross Adds Pet-Friendly Corpus Christi Shelter→
