The following is a message from Dallas-based company Petmate.
The destruction from Hurricane Harvey in Houston and South Texas areas is catastrophic. For Texas-based Petmate, this devastating situation hits far too close to home. In the true spirit of the Lone Star, Friendship state, Petmate is dedicated to helping out their neighbors, both two-legged and four-legged, to the south.
From a company standpoint, Petmate is donating needed supplies to shelters and rescue organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area like the Humane Society of North Texas, SPCA of Texas and Rescue Bank Dallas to aid in their efforts at housing thousands of displaced pets. Petmate also provided crates, kennels, leashes, blankets and more to several rescue teams and charity partners, like the MuttNation Foundation and Jackson Galaxy Foundation, which are making heroic and life-saving trips to Houston and the surrounding areas to transport pets out of the affected areas.
After the storm and flood waters recede and Petmate trucks are able to safely deliver to the area they will continue to donate more supplies as they are needed.
Additionally, their generous employees have committed to collecting funds to donate to the American Red Cross on behalf of Petmate.
As with any tragic situation of this magnitude, it takes a village to react, respond and recover. Petmate is calling upon the community in this time of need to consider donating to one of the organizations below to continue to support and render aid to the families affected by Hurricane Harvey.
