Hurricane rescue dogs coming to Wisconsin

Pet supplies being taken to Houston

This weekend a caravan of vehicles loaded with pet food and supplies will travel from Wisconsin to Houston.

They will return with more than 60 displaced dogs rescued from Hurricane Harvey.

“We’re planning four vehicles to come from Wisconsin on Friday. We’re so fortunate for all of the outpouring of supplies that have been donated,” said Larissa Gavin, founder of Lola’s Lucky Day, a pet rescue organization.

Gavin lives in Houston, but was born and raised in Fort Atkinson. She works with organizations in Southern Wisconsin to place rescued dogs from the Houston area.

In the two years Lola’s Lucky Day has operated they have rescued more than 2,000 dogs. This year alone they have found forever homes for more than 800 dogs.

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, animal shelters in South Texas have been overwhelmed with displaced pets.
To support Lola’s Lucky Day, pet supplies and donations are being collected at Lake Mills Market. Those supplies will be taken to Houston to help with the rescued dogs there.

While they need dog food and other pet supplies, they have a particular need for heartworm treatment and flea and tick prevention.

“If someone is looking for a pet, please consider a rescue animal. If they want to volunteer with our organization in the Madison area, please check out our website,” said Gavin.
