Our thoughts are with all those in the path of Hurricane Harvey. Below are the latest Facebook and twitter posts of shelters and groups impacted by or helping with animal rescue. Please consider retweeting them and spreading the word to help them and to let others know of resources in the area. If you’re with a shelter or rescue, don’t forget to create an Amazon wishlist so that people can easily send you the items you need. If you don’t know how, here is a guide.

Casper came to us back in April through our Animal Cruelty Investigations unit. Her life before the SPCA of Texas wasn’t full of snuggles, trips to the park or peanut butter stuffed bones. It is now though, thanks to our fosters! Follow her story here, https://t.co/zPsMTkYdra

Austin Pets Alive!

Scrappy wants to say thanks to this loving community that donated to his TECA surgery earlier this year. Scrappy would have nearly constant ear infections and the only way to help him was this surgery. He's a much more spry pup now that he's not in constant pain.

Most shelters across the nation don't have the ability to do surgeries to improve the quality of life for the dogs in our care. Because of the generosity of YOU, Scrappy is living a much happier life in foster and cannot wait to meet his forever family! Email adopt@austinpetsalive.org for more info!

What a great day to have the grand open for the @HoustonSPCA and to be around people who love and care for animals as much as I do. I have a great team of animal investigators.

Houston SPCA

Who doesn’t love a good reunion story? Jazz and Petey came to the Houston SPCA with their litter back in August after a kind person took them in off the streets. Their siblings got adopted first, and then it was just the two of them left. Luan decided to adopt Jazz, but she couldn’t stop thinking about the other little kitten once they got home. She went online and saw that he’d been adopted, so she felt better.

A few weeks later Luan was on the Houston SPCA website again and saw Petey’s profile show up, so she called and asked if that was the same Petey who she’d almost adopted a month ago. It turns out Petey’s family had a little girl who just wasn’t ready to have a cat, so Luan and her boyfriend decided to come back and adopt him so they could reunite the two kitten siblings for good.

Today was a busy day at work but when I got home, my dog was excited to hang out with me. Three years ago, I adopted Scruffy from @austinhumane and it really was one of the best decisions in my life. He gets more treats today! #snapswithscruffy

Austin Humane Society

This week's #afdfurryfriday is giving us all the feels. Stop in to meet Lola and we're sure you'll fall in love! #adoptatx #keepaustinadopting #unleashhopeHer name was Lola, she was a showgirl… 🎶

Our Lola, this week’s #AFDFurryFriday feature, is a 3-year-old Chesapeake Bay Retriever who came to the Austin Humane Society (AHS) earlier this month after she was found abandoned on a piece of land. This sweet girl is a love-bug who’s very curious and likes to explore; she’s a super smarty-pants, so an active family would be ideal! Although she can be a bit shy in new surroundings, she settles in like a champ with a little time.

We found out during her photo shoot yesterday with Firefighter James Parker (Engine 4/C shift) that Lola likes people...all kinds of people of all different ages. She’s also very tolerant of little ones, so she’d make a great family dog!

Lola is heartworm positive, which is common in Texas, so she will require treatment. But thanks to AHS’s amazing veterinary partnerships, her new family will get the necessary medication at a much lower cost. Lola’s adoption fee is $85 and she’s been spayed, microchipped, and is current on vaccinations.

No yellow feathers in her hair to speak of, and the merengue and cha-cha are highly unlikely, but if you’re looking for a smart, sweet showgirl-wannabe, then Lola’s your lady! To learn more about her, visit www.austinhumanesociety.org/ or call (512) 646-7387.
