Look at all the amazing volunteers, employees, companies, and efforts that brought this operation to life. This long chain of loving people gave the dogs of Hurricane Harvey a new chance at life:
- Delia McLinden of Texas (FarmHouse Fresh) & Shawna Dahl of Minnesota (Sothys USA) decided over a late night message to orchestrate the rescue and were instrumental in coordinating all the details.
- The Underdog Project Dallas
worked with Urgent Animals of Fort Worth
and rescues in south Texas to save and transport dogs to DFW holding areas.
- Donations from all over DFW poured in, including kennels, blankets, food, leashes, water bowls, and more.
- FHF employees, and volunteers responding to posts online, came to the holding areas to wash, walk, feed, clean, and care for the dogs over many days while the dogs awaited transport to Minnesota.
- Wendelin & Delia (of FHF, featured in the photo above) drove waves of dogs to a local veterinarian for their shots and wellness care.
- Upon arrival to Minnesota, dozens of volunteers came to the campground to feed, walk, and welcome the dogs before they made their final journeys. Some became fosters and made formal adoptions.
in St. Cloud, MN donated pallets of food, treats, leashes and collars for all the dogs.
- Fagen Inc.
provided a large cargo SUV to continue the dog transport to other shelters across the state.
