Natural disasters affect humans and animals alike, and Hurricane Harvey is forcing many families to evacuate to emergency shelters, where pets are not permitted due to possible allergic reactions from other people at the shelters. As a result, animal guardians are unwillingly relinquishing their beloved pets to animal shelters.

Austin Pets Alive! (APA!), an animal rescue in Austin, Texas, is working hard to keep up with the growing animal shelter populations, and as of this past Saturday, they have transported 235 animals to their shelter, and they anticipate many more as animals continue to be relinquished to shelters and found on flooded streets.

APA! says they are humbled by the outpouring of support they have received, but they still need more assistance, and they are asking you for your help to save and care for these frightened and displaced animals who have been tragically separated from their families.

Due to the generous donations they have already received, APA! is running out of storage space for crates, bags of dry food, and other large items. They are asking for financial donations in lieu of these items, which will allow them to allocate funds as needed. If you are able, you can donate to APA! here. If you are in the Austin area, they will also accept donations of items from their wish list.

If you cannot make a financial contribution, you can help save these innocent lives by volunteering as a foster or adopting one of these animals. Fostering truly does save lives, and APA! is asking for volunteers who will be able to commit to fostering until the animals are adopted to forever homes. To learn more about fostering or adopting through APA!, visit here.

There is great power in a community joining together for a common good, so please share this with your network to help gain more support for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

And what about "farm" animals on ranches and farms? Evacuated? Rescued? Abandoned? And "lab" animals? "Both Covance and SNBL have facilities in Alice, Texas,” near San Antonio, mentioned Stop Animal Exploitation Now cofounder Michael Budkie in a posting to International Primate Protection League founder Shirley McGreal’s Facebook page. Between the two, Covance and SNBL may house well over 9,000 macaques.

The south Texas region also includes many of the world’s biggest cattle ranches and dairy barns, several dozen major zoos and exotic wildlife sanctuaries, and both state and national wildlife refuges of significance.
