September: A Special Addition Dogs in Need

Posted by

  

  

Usually, our Dogs in Need charity posts are light-hearted and fun, showing cute images and descriptions of all the available dogs that are up for adoption from our monthly charity. This month however, Felix Chien is proud to partner with a shelter in much need of help due to Hurricane Harvey. The Houston SPCA was founded in 1924 and is the first and largest animal shelter in the Texas Gulf Coast area. It is a private, non-profit charity that operates solely from donations and volunteers. They need all the help they can get to provide as much care and shelter for all the incoming animals affected by the hurricane.

Houston SPCA

The Houston SPCA is a multiple faceted charity that offers a variety of resources and programs to the Houston area. Not only does it offer pet adoption, shelter, and rescue, it also has children-related activities and community outreach programs to inform and involve the surrounding area. They also have a team of animal cruelty investigators to respond quickly to reported cases of animal abuse. Their most recent and involved effort is to reunite and rehome pets displaced or abandoned from Hurricane Harvey.

At this time, Houston SPCA is focusing on all the incoming animals that were either lost or left during the storm. Because of this, standard adoptions have been put on the back burner and their adoption page has not been recently updated. This just means there are other ways to help! If you are in the Houston area and would like to help out, they are constantly looking for new volunteers! Please feel feel to check out their Volunteer page for more information. Another way to help out is to foster if you have the ability. HSPCA collaborated with adoptapet.com to launch Foster a Hurricane Pet in response to Harvey (and now Irma). This wonderful website gives people in the area the opportunity to open up their home to pets that could not be taken during the hurricanes and keep them safe until their family can reclaim them again. If you are not local to the Houston, TX area and wish to help, please consider checking out their Donations and Wish List Pages. The Houston SPCA is in much need of not only funding but supplies too! As always, we thank you for your Felix Chien purchase which allows us to donate to this great charity through the month of September!
