EXTREME HEAT

Due to extreme summer temperatures, heat-related cruelty cases and deaths are rising. Keep pets indoors when possible and provide plenty of shelter, food, and water.

Summer Safety for Pets

We have zero tolerance when it comes to animal cruelty in the Houston metro area. Our teams are uniquely equipped to rescue many types of animals from all kinds of abuse and neglect.
