Thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners, Houston PetSet has set up a Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund to offer assistance to registered 501c3 animal welfare-related organizations serving animals and their owners affected by this terrible tragedy.
Houston PetSet existing grantees and partners will be given first consideration but the funds are available to any organizations that qualify for the following purposes:
1) TRANSFER / TRANSPORT – If you need funds to help facilitate transport or transfer of animals currently in danger, these requests will receive first priority. Please note, we will be looking for requests to fund collaboration with existing, reputable transfer/transport service providers as opposed to requests for gas or support for private individuals or volunteers. Based on current travel conditions, we urge you to carefully consider if and when transfer/transport will be the best choice for the animals in your care.
2) BASIC NEEDS – Pet food, travel crates, potty pads, etc. for animals currently in your care, in the care of your network of volunteers and fosters and for those temporarily displaced in shelters. Again, based on current travel conditions, we urge you to carefully consider if and when travel to deliver any items will be viable without placing you or your volunteers in any danger.
3) REBUILDING – For those with physical facilities, we know the rebuilding efforts will last long past these immediate concerns. A specific application for repairs and capital improvement efforts will be released later on but we do want you to know we anticipate having funds in hand to assist with these efforts.
4) MEDICAL VETERINARY - Please indicate if costs are for basic wellness, preventative medications, health certificates for transport, emergency aid or injury treatment and/or spay & neuter surgeries.
If you have other needs outside of these areas, please send an email with details to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
To make the process as simple as possible, we are asking organizations to simply complete this form and a representative will be in touch to ask for additional information if necessary.
At this time, we cannot make any promises regarding the timing of our response but we will do our best to be as timely as possible in our follow up. Please call us directly at (713) 960-6622 for questions or concerns.
Houston PetSet is a 501(c)(3) umbrella organization that provides grants to Houston-area animal non-profits with the goal of ending homelessness & alleviating suffering... For the Animals!
