While it is our intent to support Rescue Scotties in Texas, sometimes life throws us in a direction that we simply cannot ignore. Take the case of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and the impact on the lives of so many dogs in Texas. The TSRF Board of Directors unanimously decided to support and donate funds to five organizations in Texas that were doing and outstanding job of saving lives.
While they were not Scottie specific groups, we felt we needed to be part of the response due to the overwhelming number of images seen every day in the media and the enormous efforts and resources needed to save the dogs. We are pleased to have donated $250 each to the following groups:
Carole Owen, TSRF Board of Directors member worked with this group during Hurricane Katrina relief in New Orleans and easily recommend them as a recipient based upon her experience.
APA! is truly amazing for what they contributed to the many shelters of Houston and the Texas coast. APA! transported over 2000 shelter animals to Austin so the local Houston area shelters could take in dogs from Hurricane Harvey and house them until their owners were found.
Humane Society of Southeast Texas 501(c)(3)
Jackie Taylor, TSRF Board of Directors member is familiar with HSSET as it is in her home town area of Beaumont, Texas which was equally devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The shelter was completely flooded and with limited resources. Her recommendation was easily chosen based upon her experiences with them.
Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation
TVMF is the philanthropic arm of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association. They established a disaster fund to help veterinarians care for animals displaced and/or injured by Hurricane Harvey due to the catastrophic flooding.
Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Disaster Fund
The Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team, arguably the largest, most sophisticated veterinary emergency response team in the nation, deployed to the area the day before Hurricane Harvey hit to assist in caring for animals in need. Donations were used to assist in response and relief operations as well as to offset medical and other costs that arise after a disaster with significant veterinary impact.
