Rescue Mission: Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey continues to cause catastrophic flooding in southeastern Texas and has moved inland unleashing further deluges over Eastern Texas and Louisiana. The floods have displaced tens of thousands of people and inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, leaving countless families, service animals and household pets without anywhere to live.
The focus of Katherine Heigl’s organization, the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, will be to provide financial assistance to organizations that are working to help animals affected by this disaster, to help them support people struggling to provide shelter, care and food for their animals, and to assist local rescues and shelters with the huge influx of homeless pets.
All across the country people are gearing up to help those affected. One of the organizations that the Foundation helps to assist financially, Hearts United For Animals, will be making several trips to both Houston and Louisiana to provide much needed supplies and bring displaced dogs back to their shelter.
If you are able to help the people and pets stricken by this horrific disaster please consider making a donation to Hearts United For Animals.
Funds will be used to provide emergency medical care for the dogs as well as food and shelter in the upcoming weeks and months.
