DENVER – A Colorado homeless pet advocacy group is heading to Texas to help pets affected in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Several teams with No Kill Colorado have already been deployed to the Texas Gulf Coast earlier this week and are coming back, in order to return next Thursday with more supplies to help in relief efforts for pets forgotten or abandoned in the aftermath of the hurricane, according to spokesman Davyd Smith.

The group has already collected several thousands of pounds of food and items, but they’re asking the public to help with donating the following:

  • Cat litter - clumping preferred
  • Tarps
  • Martingale collars 
  • Crates
  • Dog treats- chew toys, peanut butter, bones, etc.- for the stressed out dogs
  • Large trash bags
  • Spray bottles
  • Bleach
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Metal dog dishes (please no plastic as it cannot be properly sanitized) large and small
  • Litter boxes- 10 x 12 or smaller
  • Sponges
  • Latex gloves
  • Dog harnesses- preferably med, large and extra large
  • Paper or Styrofoam bowls (to feed cats wet food in)
  • Puppy and kitten formula
  • Flea and tick preventative

Donations can be dropped off at three locations throughout Colorado:

Castle Rock:

  1. Castle Rock Adventist Hospital – 2350 Meadows Boulevard


  1. Mountain View Pet Lodge – 475 South Angus Avenue
  2. Arcanum Electric Tattoo – Arcanum 113 Colorado Avenue

No Kill Colorado is also asking that you check out their Facebook page for information on how to help with disaster relief efforts, or if you’re interested in becoming a foster owner for one of these pets. 

If you’re interested in donating money to their case, they ask that you do it through their PayPal account.
