Rescued Pets Movement is a 501(c)3 charity and is undertaking numerous initiatives in response to the Hurricane Harvey crisis. We serve as the biggest rescue partner for the city shelter (BARC) and, since our founding in 2013, have provided more than 23,000 death-row animals a second chance via temporary fosters, rehabilitation, and transport to forever homes in communities throughout the country and Canada where there is a demand for adoptable pets. Both the city and county shelters will be inundated moving forward, as Houston already experienced an overwhelming number of stray/abandoned animals.
Monetary funds are needed for us to maintain and expand transports with partnerships currently in formation. From vetting costs for each animal to actual hard transportation costs (vans, fuel, maintenance, etc.), additional funds are critical to our being able to answer the call. For those who prefer to donate items, we also have an Amazon list of items that we desperately need.
We are also opening our boarding facility and clinic at The Jack C. Alexander Building to care for pets displaced by Harvey, and we need volunteers! To volunteer, please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4baea828a6fb6-boardingclinic.
