Hurricane Harvey: Dog Rescue Efforts

The Washington Post recently ran an article concerning the dog rescue efforts occurring in Houston after Hurricane Harvey.  The images below, with photo credits, illustrate the heartwarming rescue of dogs in the Houston area during this devastating time for all.  Doug and I donated to a few organizations, this week, to help those people and animals affected in Houston by this terrible storm.  If you are able to help in any way, all donations and help, no matter how small, matter.  Our hearts go out to all those affected by this extreme tragedy.
