Generous Donor Donates Private Jet To Help Evacuate Stranded Dogs Out Of Hurricane Harvey

In the wake of a natural disaster, it's easy to forget those who aren't able to ask for help. The devastation of Hurricane Harvey left an overwhelming number of animals homeless and Houston-area shelters packed beyond capacity. Thanks to efforts of shelters nationwide, these animals are getting the care they need while they wait to find new homes. 

On Sunday a number of California shelters, incluing Muttville, a senior dog rescue located in San Francisco, welcomed 74 more cats and dogs affected by Harvey with the help of generous donor Joey Herrick.

In recent weeks, Muttville has taken in 18 senior animals affected by Harvey. Their full-time, in-house veterinary staff provide medical care and comfort for the dogs while they recover and get ready to find new homes.
