Save Animals Impacted by Hurricane Harvey

Target: Greg Abbott, Texas Governor

Goal: Provide support to help rescue and aid animals that have been displaced by the flooding and storms from Hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey swept Texas, leaving a path of devastation in its wake that has touched thousands of residents and an unknown number of animals. Precious animals are trapped in shelters or running around homeless after being displaced during the storm. These animals must be rescued and included in the relief efforts. Urge the Texas governor to provide support to rescue and care for innocent animals impacted by the hurricane.

Texas animal shelters and those in nearby states are facing overcrowded conditions and a lack of resources as they are overflowing with animals uprooted by the storm. These shelters are in desperate need of supplies, including food and medical supplies, to take care of the influx of animals.

A colony of about 300,000 of Houston’s Mexican free-tailed bats lived in the Waugh Bridge, which has now been submerged underwater. Rescuers are working to save and care for these and other wildlife such as deer who may have nearly drowned in the storm or no longer have a home.

Animals must be part of rescue and support efforts to ensure the entire Houston ecosystem can be restored and that innocent animals lives will not be lost. Urge the Texas governor to provide aid to the animals impacted by the storm.


Dear Governor Abbott,

Hurricane Harvey has left a disaster for many residents of your state, including the furry ones. Many Texans’ pets, along with shelter animals and wildlife, are suffering from the aftermath of the storm. These animals will remain lost and starving and thousands will die if they are not included in rescue efforts.

I urge you to save countless animal lives by providing aid towards their rescue and care during this tragic time.
