Compelled to act after witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, Embrace Pet Insurance is donating funds to a handful of the many animal rescue groups working tirelessly to assist pets and people in the relief effort.
“At Embrace, pets are family. We want to do our part to recognize the devastation in Florida and Texas, and the need for rescue efforts for the communities affected. Pets have been displaced from their families, and many are now homeless. The local shelters need all of the help they can get during this difficult time, and we are happy to be able to assist,” said Embrace President Chris Hagesfeld.
Embrace will spread their donation across several non-profit organizations in Florida and Texas, including Best Friends Animal Society (TX), Collier County Animal Services (FL), For the Love of Cats (FL), The Humane Society (TX), the RedRover organization (TX), and SPCA of Texas (TX).
According to Business Insider, Hurricane Harvey is responsible for killing approximately 83 people, destroying or damaging over 100,000 homes, flooding neighborhoods, and displacing over 30,000 people in Texas and Louisiana. Hurricane Irma hit Florida and several Caribbean islands, and is responsible for knocking out power, leaving thousands homeless, and killing at least 41 people.
