Last week Texas and the south were devastated by unprecedented ice storms and freezing weather. People and pets were in dire circumstances without heat, electricity and in many cases running water. Animal shelters were particularly hard hit as temperatures dropped into the single digits.
Wings of Rescue has already flown four flights, carrying 401 dogs and cats out of the freezing cold and flying in 2,500 pounds of blankets for shelter animals in Fort Worth. We will continue our Texas relief missions by flying over 300 affected shelter pets on three flights in the coming week. On Saturday we will again partner with the ASPCA with a flight from the Humane Society of North Texas to Delaware’s Brandywine Valley SPCA and St Huberts Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey. On Monday we will be flying from the hard-hit Palm Valley Shelter in Edinburg, Texas to Brandywine Valley SPCA followed by a flight on Wednesday for which we will team with the fabulous Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach to fly out dogs from Austin Pets Alive.

Shelters are still struggling to get back to normal. Even though the weather has improved, potable water is in short supply and the shelters need to free up resources so they can continue to help serve their communities dogs and cats.
