The Memorial Day flood broke records submerging the city of Austin underwater for hours. Four people have been confirmed dead and at least 12 people are still missing. Governor Greg Abbott declared 30 counties in a state of disaster due to the recent rainfall in Texas. While the rain is gone for now, there are still many homeless homeowners and displaced pets that are in need. Relief funds need donations and flooded animal shelters need foster homes. Here’s a list of all the ways you can help flood victims, including our 4-legged best friends.
