AHFA to help TX Harvey animals

$810 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 13 months
A Heart for Animals is partnering with two animal rescue transports to help save animals that are currently sitting in shelters in the surrounding areas of Houston. This will free up room in the local shelters to take in flood victim animals. If there is no room in the shelters for these flood victim animals, then the animals currently in the shelters will be euthanized for space.

We would like to acknowledge the support and sponsorship of our rescue efforts from our preferred vets in our area; Randall Road Animal Hospital and Wonder Lake Vet, respectively.

We are hoping our first transport will be next weekend, Sept. 9.

Ways you can help! Fostering, monetary donations and donation of items.

Fostering - Being foster home based, we can only take in an animal into rescue if we have an open foster home. If you have ever considered fostering, now is the time! Please visit our website www.aheartforanimals.org and fill out our foster app under the foster tab. A Heart for Animals provides medical care and supplies, you provide the love and the home.

Monetary donations - Our greatest expense is medical care. Any amount is greatly appreciated and needed.  Any money collected through Gofundme, will be designated for TX Harvey animals. 

Donations of goods - Supplies are needed such as blankets, pet food, collars, leashes, capstar, dewormer, paper towels, bleach, etc. Please contact us to find out about drop off points near you. 847.868.2432. Our goal is to share these items with the animal rescue transport teams we are partnering with so that they can take down to TX on their next transport.

The rescue efforts for the TX Harvey animals will be a marathon and not a sprint.  Alone we can only do so much, together we can do so much more!  

We truly appreciate your support. Every bit helps! Sharing this fundraiser is a great help as well.

Thank you again!

More TX animals taken into AHFA

It has been quite the week! We have taken in 6 animals from TX within 6 days, in addition to the animals in our own state of IL and also OH.

The first trio of animals from TX consisted of Rex, a 4 month old Rat Terrier, Liberty a Terrier mix and Saffron a Lab mix. All extremely friendly and loving.

Liberty became ill within 12 hours of transport. After a costly ER visit for testing and treatment, she went back home to her foster home. Within 12 hours she was at our vet with a 105.6 temp! She has spent the last 5 days is isolation at our vet's office for treatment. We are unsure of when she will be released.

The next trio came in last night; Cypress and Star who are our first cats rescued from TX and Bayou, a gorgeous Flat Coat Retriever. They are all healthy and enjoying being safe within a rescue. Cypress has actually already been adopted!

Our adoption fees rarely cover our medical but in Liberty's case, her medical will far exceed her $300 adoption fee.

In an effort for us to be able to help save more animals, regardless the state, please consider making a donation to our Hurricane fund. We have been asked to help save more animals from TX and also now from FL as well. There are just too many animals in need!

Thank you again for your support. Every bit helps and together we are making a difference.
