Heading to Houston


Our hearts are as full as the trucks headed to Houston with your donations to help the displaced pets of Hurricane Harvey!

The two 26 foot trucks and a cargo van are being piloted by some amazing people with really big hearts! Thanks to Truck Team #1: Mike and Mary! Thanks to Truck Team #2: Kim and Greg! And Thanks to Truck Team #3: Rich and Irene!

So many wonderful people made this Hurricane Harvey supply drive possible. A big thanks to Destination Pet who is providing the trucks, Bentley's Pet Stuff for donating a truck full of food for truck 1 and being drop off points for the drive, Petco Foundation for an incredible donation to help us fill any empty space in truck 2, the staff at the Petco Lake Zurich IL for always being so amazing to Young at Heart and being there to help in any way possible, Trader Joe's-Lake Zurich,IL for the food and drink donations for our drivers, and P.A.W.S. Tinley Park for donating a ton of pet food, too! Thanks to Young at Heart volunteers and staff for all of your help, and thanks to YOU, the good people who donated to make this trip possible!

The cargo van pictured has crates loaded and on their way to Texas so that we can bring senior pets back that have either been surrendered by their owners or were in the shelter system before the hurricane hit. This will help create space for those displaced or lost pets who have people looking for them so that they can hopefully be reunited. At the same time, we also have new senior pets arriving from shelters in the Chicago area this weekend as well.

If you'd like to donate towards bringing senior pets back from Texas and the vet care that they will need, we are leaving our special paypal link open. The donations collected through this link from here on out will be used to help Young at Heart help dogs and cats from Texas. Donate online at http://srpets.co/yahharvey17 or via snail mail at Young at Heart, PO Box 1293, Palatine IL 60078. Your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law.

We are so grateful to everyone for working together. ❤️
