Seattle Humane is prepared to take in up to 300 pets (200 cats/100 dogs) from animal rescue organizations in Texas following Hurricane Harvey that left thousands of families and their pets stranded.

This effort is to relieve overcrowding and open up space and resources for pets displaced by the storm, and for those in need of temporary housing while their owners reside in evacuation shelters.

Seattle Humane will not take in pets separated from their owners in the disaster.

Wings of Rescue will transport shelter pets from Texas to Boeing Field on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at 2:45pm where Seattle Humane staff and volunteers, along with several other local shelters, will be waiting to receive the animals.

The Seattle Humane team will transport pets to our shelter in Bellevue where they will be placed for adoption. This is the first of several expected flights to Seattle to help shelters that are directly housing displaced pets outside of Houston.

Seattle Humane is organizing an emergency foster care orientation for prospective volunteers who can temporarily house pets currently in our care to create more space for animals flying in from Texas.  Email for more information.
