List of animal shelters and rescues in the path of Hurricane Harvey

Even before a hurricane comes, many animal shelters are having to prepare for the unthinkable. And unfortunately, most of them are faced with tough decisions as they never have the resources necessary to save all the pets in their care.

When flood waters rise, these shelters need to ensure their animals aren’t left behind to starve or drowned. They also need to ensure that when the flood waters recede, they have plenty of open kennel space to take in all of the lost, abandoned, and stray pets rescued by their volunteers.

It’s truly chaos…. and they need our help.

We have compiled a list of all the shelters and rescue groups that will need help either directly or indirectly. Each one will need help in different ways, as each will play different roles. Many of the shelters will become “ground zero” for the lost and abandoned animals in their areas, while many rescue groups will be the “behind the scenes” heroes that will find foster families and volunteers to take in all of the overflow.

But one thing is certain… they will all need resources, supplies and volunteers. So, please reach out to them, and help them in any way you can.

You can search for pets in need at

Be a hero and help save lives…. our pets need us now more than ever.

    If I can help with a foster home,let me know,if inside cat needs to be able to get along with cat and dog that I already have. If outside, just able to get along with another cat,mime are all neutered. Would like for the fosters to be as well.

      Great idea! I would reach out to one of the larger shelters in your area. They are probably spearheading that right now. If not, let us know and we will try to help any way we can.

      I have a friend in Humble whose 3 cats need fostering while they strip their home of damaged sheetrock, carpeting, etc. Please respond with your contact info so I can have her call you. Her cats have crates and a litter box, and are frightened from all that’s been going on. Thank you for being willing to help!

    I don’t think I can take any fosters (I wish) – I have 6 animals in a small house already. BUT I would love to donate to do something to help out. Is there a place where one can donate? Should I check out the individual shelters?

    • Eric Theis August 29, 2017 Reply

      definitely look at both shelters and rescue groups. Keep in mind, your local ones may need supplies if they are planning to take in any via transport, so that may be a good start.

    Please post what animal welfare organizations are most in need of $$$ and what supplies we can send when delivery is available. Thank you

    I would love to start a drop off in my area, (Carlisle, Pennsylvania) for food, medication, supplies etc…if I get enough, I will personally pay for a UPS transport. Would there be a centralized location for delivery that can be distributed to the many other shelters in need? If this is do-able please contact me with information.

    • Eric Theis August 29, 2017 Reply

      That’s great. You can go to our facebook page @911fosterpets and post this to all of our audience. Also, you can go to our site at and search the pets in your local area. From there, choose a shelter that is closest to you and reach out to them via email. They should be able to coordinate that. In the meantime, we will let you know if we hear of anything in your area.

    • Eric Theis August 29, 2017 Reply

      Yes. We will check with the larger shelters in your area and see who is spearheading that.

    We live all the way in Virginia Beach, VA HOWEVER….we would love to foster any fur babies in need of a home until their families can take them back. We have 3 friendly and neutered male labs and a fenced back yard on a 2 acre lot. Veterinary references and foster experience. We will keep in touch with the family and send pictures and updates until your pet can safely return home.

    Must be a friendly pet — no aggressive animals or house breaking issues please.

      Great! Please go to and search for local pets. There are quite a few in your area right now that need help. Thanks!

    Home with fenced yard available in San Diego for an small senior dog. Must get along well with other dogs (we have one small senior girl). Can foster as long as needed until someone gets back on their feet. Someone is home full time so dog won’t be alone.

    We offer medical and care advice for pets on our Apple and Android app. We usually charge for vet opinions but will waive fees for the next few weeks for anyone caring for victims of Harvey or Irma. If interested let me know and I’ll post app information. I don’t want to spam your feed unless people are interested.
