Since Hurricane Harvey made its way to Texas, the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) has and will continue to assist as many dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in need of shelter, food, and necessary vaccinations and preventative care. Currently, we are housing 79 pets from evacuee families forced to flee their homes, strays, and transferred shelter pets from the gulf coast saved from the inclement weather. Many of these families affected have lost quite a bit, if not everything, and some are still in the dark as to what damage has occurred. Our plan is to house their pets for as long as necessary so that their owners can have peace of mind knowing that their pets are safe and well taken care of. For pets needing more than temporary care, our goal is to find them a forever home.
The cost of caring for these pets is approximately $36,000 and growing for the SAHS. For that reason, we ask that, if you are able to assist in any way that you visit SAhumane.org/hurricane-harvey to find out how you can help. So many individuals have dropped off or sent donations to help us so we continue our mission and we cannot thank them enough. The amazing generosity from those all over the world is greatly appreciated! If interested in donating directly to the SAHS to help us offset expenses, please visit our Harvey’s Heroes emergency fund.

You can honor or memorialize your loved ones at the San Antonio Humane Society by purchasing a memorial brick or tribute tag. These items will be displayed at the SAHS.
