The costs of rescuing, transporting and medically treating more than 3500 animals in just one month can be challenging. This incredibly generous donation from Network for Animals will allow us to continue the daily care we have been providing for the dogs, cats, horses and wild animals affected by Hurricane #Harvey. Thank you to all the kind supporters who donated to our cause! .

Jonas and his family tragically lost their miniature horse to the flooding caused by Harvey. Their other horse, Shocky, made it through the storm and we were able to reunite the two of them this weekend! Jonas couldn't thank us enough, and promised that as soon as they are able, they will be coming back to adopt a pony for the family. We were also grateful to be able to supply them with hay and grain donated by the community to help get them back on their feet. .

The generosity of animal lovers doesn't have to stay within state lines. The  @ri_spca reached out to the citizens of their little state and collected donations for the animal victims of Harvey, and they sent this amazing batch of checks "from the smallest state in the Union to the largest in the contiguous United States". To our dear friends in the Northeast, we thank you with all our hearts!

Ava made it through Harvey safe and sound, but the fence in her back yard had some storm damage and she managed to slip out.  She was rescued by the Houston SPCA's 24-hour injured animal rescue ambulance after she was hit by a car, and we brought her in to receive expert veterinary care. Her mom, Rachelle, was so relieved when she discovered Ava was with us, and the two were clearly happy to be together once again.

The Houston SPCA was thrilled to reunite Tammy with her mare, Cyanne, and Carl  with his gelding, Interstate. Unfortunately, the couple lost everything in the storm but were overjoyed to have their babies back and were extremely grateful for the care their horses received while with us. To help them get through the next few weeks, we supplied them with some hay and grain that has been donated to us from the community. One less thing to worry about while they get back on their feet!

The Houston SPCA’s 24-hour animal rescue ambulance came to the aid of a 90 pound alligator snapping turtle that was discovered in the middle of the road by Houston Police Department on Memorial Drive at Waugh overnight. The ambulance brought the endangered turtle to the Houston SPCA’s Wildlife Center of Texas for sanctuary. The turtle is estimated to be between 70-100 years old and was returned to Buffalo Bayou this afternoon by Texas Parks and Wildlife!

Get out those tissues... Analyn had a tearful reunion with her beloved cats Mishka and MoMo here at the Houston SPCA. They were rescued from the second floor of their home by our hardworking team, and Analyn was overjoyed to see how healthy and happy they looked despite their ordeal. Their house is still completely under water, but they're together and safe, and that's what matters!

We're filled with gratitude for our partners at Humane Society of Missouri who transferred 51 adoptable cats for placement to make room for victims of Hurricane Harvey. When we work together, we can do amazing things for the animals!

Comfort in the Storm: You can distract yourself and your pets from #HurricaneHarvey by keeping busy with games, toys and treats! Fill up a few treat-dispensing toys with peanut butter or dry kibble mixed with wet food and freeze them to provide longer-lasting entertainment. Practice your parlor tricks and play your pets’ favorite games to help the time pass.

Comfort in the Storm: One of the easiest ways to alleviate your pets’ anxiety during #HurricaneHarvey is to sit with them in a quiet, interior room in your house. You can also play soft music to help drown out the noise of the storm. Bring in some comfy cushions and a good book and ride out the storm together.

Comfort in the Storm: Do you have a crate for your pet? It can be a calm, safe place for your dog or cat to ride out #HurricaneHarvey with you. Put the crate in a quiet spot away from windows and exterior doors, and put a soft bed and your pet’s favorite toys in with them. Don’t lock them in if they start to panic, only use the crate if your pets are used to staying in there.

Every responsible pet owner knows the importance of a properly-fitting collar with current ID tags. Unfortunately the Houston SPCA often sees animals whose collars were not adjusted as they grew, resulting in painful embedding. Sarah, a 1.5-year-old Labrador Retriever, was rescued by a Houston SPCA cruelty investigator because her owners had left her collar too tight. She was rushed into triage to be examined and have her deep, painful neck wound assessed. The injury was documented for her court case, and then the veterinary team went about cleaning and bandaging her up.

As with all court cases, sweet Sarah spent several weeks under the watchful eye of the Houston SPCA while her case was resolved. Her neck was routinely cleaned and bandaged, and it healed beautifully in the time she spent waiting. A little less than one month after Sarah was rescued, she was placed on the adoption floor with a healed neck and a new lease on life. It took just six days for her new dad Paul to find her and fall in love.

There is a common misconception that animals who come into animal shelters must be broken or flawed, otherwise why would their owners ever give them up? The truth is, so many pets come to the Houston SPCA because their families have no other option. Nova was one such dog- she was loved, but her family had to move and couldn't bring her. She was swiftly adopted by a Houston SPCA volunteer, and has proven to be a perfect pet in her new home. Here, she's practicing her agility skills. Next on her list is to conquer dock diving! Give rescue pets a chance. They often surprise you with how wonderful they really are!
