You don’t need to live in Texas to support the animals affected by the hurricane. Help shelters by donating supplies to those hit by the storm or to shelters taking in flood animals. These shelters typically need wire crates, blankets, dog and cat food, bowls, cat litter boxes and litter, bedding, comfort toys, leashes and collars. “For those that fled with nothing, they need all these things for their pets right now,” a representative of the Humane Society of North Texas tells The Dodo. The Humane Society of North Texas has taken in 22 Gulf Coast pets, with more on the way.
Before donating, make sure to check the shelters’ website and Facebook page to see if they have specific requests for supplies. To get started, check out the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services’s Amazon Wish List and the SPCA of Texas’s top-requested items. Helping can be one click away!
