"This very well could have been us", she said.

Across the city, people pulled together to help rescue creatures great and small, as many refused to leave the animals to their fate.

The shelter also urges all pet owners to have a plan in place which includes a pet emergency kit, a buddy system with friends or neighbors, and transportation.

"The shelters in Texas are facing large numbers of incoming animals made homeless by this storm and need to move them to safety", Stephanie Shain, HRA's chief operating officer, says in a press release.

Rescue efforts are underway for pets and animals across Texas, with many shelters and good Samaritans helping stranded animals.

Speed said the shelter has the capacity and is on standby to help out.

One of the most powerful photos of all is surely this one of a man and his pet dog outside his ruined home in the aftermath of the storm. Both organizations are heading to Texas and Louisiana with a 50-foot animal rescue vehicle and 100,000 pounds of pet food. Both dogs and cats can be chipped, and it is a quick, simple procedure that only takes minutes.

Animal Friends has helped with housing and placing animals after natural disasters in the past, Beaver said.

Shelters in Texas are expecting to get a surge of strays and pets.

Some of the animals will be met in New Jersey by the St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, and it's sister shelters around New Jersey. San Antonio Animal Care Services has taken in about 200 evacuated pets so far.

There are many ways you can help the animals impacted by Harvey including hosting a fundraiser, donating, signing up for training to help with future disasters, and spreading awareness by sharing updates and links to donate.
