We’ve rushed another grant to a shelter flooded by rain from Hurricane Harvey.
“Etosha Rescue is located in Seguin in South Central Texas,” says Assistant Director Julie Mitchell. “This made us a target for the high winds and floods of Hurricane Harvey. We have suffered flooding, a carport ripped from the ground and upended, downed fences and posts, fallen tree limbs, a food shed that was damaged, and several tarps and tin roofs that were damaged. The water will drain off eventually, but we do need assistance with cleanup and repairs. This project will impact 106 dogs by giving them a safe and secure place to live.
“While we have a history of taking in pets from past natural disasters, we can not do that immediately because of the shelter damage. Once repairs are made and water recedes, we can then begin accepting displaced animals.” Grant funds will be used to repair damaged property and to purchase 14 large wire crates for pets displaced by the storm.
