Bayou Animal Services, the League City Animal Shelter, and the Galveston Island Humane Society are continuing to work together to create positive outcomes for animals and families affected by Hurricane Harvey. The three organizations have teamed up to create the “Hurricane Harvey Animal Rescue Shelter,” now open at Gulf Greyhound Park, 1000 FM 2004, La Marque, to provide services, space and support for homeless or displaced pets related to Hurricane Harvey. This location is assisting with the continued rescue, care, and reunification of these animals.

Beginning Friday, Sept. 8 th at 10 a.m., ALL Hurricane Harvey related pets from these three shelter facilities were to be consolidated at the Gulf Greyhound location – a project that may take more than one day. Please refer to the Gulf Greyhound location for pet redemption and support services.
“If you were separated from your animal, need assistance with your pets, or are interested in volunteering or fostering, we encourage you to come to the Hurricane Harvey Animal Rescue Shelter,” said Galveston Island Humane Society Executive Director Caroline Dorsett-Pate. As pets become available for adoption they will be transferred back to area shelters, primarily the League City Animal Shelter or the Galveston Island Humane Society while Bayou Animal Services continues their recovery.
Hurricane Harvey caused many pets to be lost, left homeless, abandoned by families, or temporarily left for emergency housing with any of the above shelters and the three shelters have teamed up to create a single location to accommodate animals and assist with rehoming and care.
