HIGH TEMPERATURES

High temperatures are persisting, and heat-related cruelty cases haven't stopped. Keep pets indoors when possible and provide plenty of shelter, food, and water.

Heat 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.
