I am Sheila RiceWatkins,  a Veterinarian trained by NVRT (a disbanded/ defunded FEMA/NDMS group, previously VMAT), CO Veterinary Medical Response Team (also defunded) and a local evacuation group. I am closing my practice Crow Hill Pet Hospital in Bailey, CO for the holiday weekend, assembling a team (including vet techs) and have solicited our amazing mountain community for supplies and donations to bring to Hurricane Harvey disaster survivors. I am working with our local humane society, Intermountain Humane Society as well for finding fosters to transport surrendered homeless pets to make room for continued survivors. Abaxis has donated 100 heartworm tests to us for our trip and we have up to 2000lbs of pet food. People of this community are amazing in time of disaster and anxious to help.... A group of 5 will be leaving Colorado 6pm Friday night and returning Tuesday am...we will have kennels, some medical supplies, and willing to transport surrenders back to colorado as we organize fosters and coordinate with local resources for after care. We also will supply our own fuel needs from Colorado as we understand it is unavailable in the disaster zones.

We have reached out to Houston SPCA as well as have connections at the Houston convention center and family/friends in the Magnolia area.   We will be providing veterinary care on a volunteer basis to animals in need and distributing donations to Harvey survivors around magnolia as well as Houston.   We have collected a tremendous amount of supplies from our surrounding mountain communities here in Bailey, CO. We are renting an RV (which this money will help cover the cost of) to create a self sufficient hospital. As the lead of our team, I will be responsible for withdrawing the donations to my personal bank account.We will be hauling our donations (mostly pet related, but clothing has also been collected) and medical supplies for pet care.  I have registered for
my emergency veterinary license in TX  and have been collecting medication, donations and supplies.  Thank you for your time and support.
