I copied this press release. It was nice that Jasper thought about all the pet shelter needs. Lot's of living things need a hand not just people. Here in California, our shelters are trying to take animals in from some shelters in the bad areas so they can take in the new displaced animals. Link if you want to help at the bottom.
"Jasper Contractors, Inc. sends $25,000 donation to the Houston Humane Society Atlanta, Georgia – High-volume roofing contractor, Jasper Contractors, Inc. donates $25,000 to the Houston Humane Society after Hurricane Harvey hit southeast Texas on Aug. 25.
The Weather Channel recapped the impact of the hurricane stating that Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 Hurricane with winds of 130 miles per hour. Many were forced to leave their homes and belongings to seek dry shelter. As evacuations and rescues occurred, many pets were left behind. Luckily there are organizations such as the Houston Humane Society that are able to provide shelter for animals that were separated from their loved ones.
“I know that there are many animal lovers in the roofing industry,” says Brian Wedding, Owner and CEO of Jasper Contractors, Inc. “If you have the means to donate, we encourage you to help the Houston Humane Society.”
According to the Houston Humane Society’s website, they do not receive federal, state, or local government funding and rely solely on donations, program services, and special events. Leading up to Hurricane Harvey, the organization was able to clear the shelter to allow space for Harvey survivors. Although the hurricane has passed, funding is still needed for the humane society’s life-saving efforts.

“It is hurricane season, and as the people prepare for storms along the coasts, you can never be totally ready for the aftermath,” says Wedding. “These donations are crucial when rebuilding communities. Do your research and donate.”
