Humans aren’t the only ones weathering the storm as Hurricane Harvey ravages Texas with “epic and catastrophic” flooding that has left thousands of people stranded.

Rescue efforts are also underway for pets and animals across the state, with many shelters and good Samaritans helping animals that are scared, hungry and alone.

‘Epic and catastrophic’ flooding devastates Houston as more rainfall is forecast.

SPCA of Texas provides help and shelter for abandoned pets rescued. The following is information explains how you can donate to help save our pet victims of the horrible disaster.

The SPCA of Texas is putting every available resource behind assisting pets and people who have evacuated the Gulf Coast to the North Texas area. We are deploying staff, volunteers and supplies to support evacuees housed at the mega shelter opening today in Dallas, working with city and county disaster officials to care for the pets of evacuees.

We also took in 123 cats from The Cattery cat shelter in Corpus Christi on Friday in advance of the storm. These cats were un-owned, and we cleared their shelter to ensure the cats’ safety.

People can help us help the hundreds, possibly even thousands, of evacuees’ pets coming to North Texas by donating to the SPCA of Texas at

You can help the thousands of pets that are abandoned, alone and frightened by making a donation today.

Remember, your pets count!
