Hurricane Harvey victims: How to help

[...] Austin Pets Alive! is an animal shelter and no-kill pet advocacy group seeking assistance to help with pets, following the onset of the storm, and has created a page on its website specific to Hurricane Harvey-related needs.

"Austin Pets Alive! has been helping shelters in the direct line of Hurricane Harvey. We’ve been working with these shelters to transport as many pets as possible to APA! and as of Saturday morning, we’ve transported over 235 animals to our shelter," a statement on the website says. "Because of the incredible, humbling support we’ve received from the community thus far, we have been able to remove some items from our needs list completely."

I feel sorry for the animals in a disaster like this. There often is no safety net for them. A few years back the Missouri River flooded and a lot of people were temporarily displaced in Eastern Nebraska. Of course it was nothing nearly as severe as a hurricane. But people had to find temporary shelter and sometimes couldn't have their pets with them. There were people who stepped up and offered to foster pets until their families could return home. I thought that was kind. It helps too if they are chipped, easier to find them if they get separated from their people.

Yes, animals seems so especially helpless in these situations. Now with all the cats I'm taking care of, I worry about them a lot because I can't really control their environment very well. But my earlier four indoor cats were all micro-chipped just in case.
