RESCUE UNDERWAY | 4 p.m., June 14, 2019: We’re on the ground in Killeen, Texas, assisting with a large-scale case of alleged neglect where nearly 200 cats and kittens (plus several dogs) are being removed from appalling conditions in an 1,800 square-foot residence. Kittens were being housed in aquarium tanks, suffering from severe eye issues and surrounded by moldy litterboxes. Now, these animals will be given the veterinary care they’ve so far been denied and, eventually, the opportunity to be placed in loving homes.
We never know when disasters will strike or when animals may be in need of urgent rescue, but we know we must be ready. Your support makes our preparedness, rescue, care and relief work possible.
From moving animals out of harm’s way before a hurricane, to rescuing the victims of a case of extreme cruelty, to supplying emergency funding to a local shelter for temporary air conditioners, to providing 40 tons of hay to feed horses left hungry by wildfires, to search, rescue, transport and emergency sheltering efforts after tragic storms—we're only able to offer relief for animals because of supporters like you.
Please support rescue and relief efforts by donating to our Emergency Animal Rescue Fund using our secure form. Your gift today will ensure that our team can continue to answer the call during times of emergency wherever and whenever animals need us. (Find out more about how your donation will be used.) Thank you for your contribution to these lifesaving efforts.
