How Pearland Pets Was Involved For Hurricane Harvey
Shelter Cleared of Adoptable Pets
We facilitated the removable of 44 dogs and 21 cats from the Pearland Animal Shelter immediately after Hurricane Harvey hit. This was done to allow space in the shelter for pets that became displaced due to the hurricane. The pets that were removed were taken into multiple pet rescues and were sent to several northern Texas cities as well as to other states, such as Colorado and Washington State for adoption. See photos below of the shelter being cleared.
Pearland Pet Food Bank
Photos below show the Pearland Pets’ Pet Food Bank that was opened over Labor Day Weekend and again the weekend of 09/16 & 09/17. Please note that all people in these photos are of those either making a donation or are volunteering. No photo contains images of those receiving assistance.
Because of the tremendous support we received from the community, we were able to serve approximately 1,700 families affected by Hurricane Harvey. We distributed at least 90,000 pounds of food, along with thousands of other items, such as toys, bowls, collars, leashes, beds, kitty litter, etc.
