Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinics Fosters Pets Displaced by Hurricane Harvey

Operation Reunite partners with Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinics to provide housing for pets displaced by the hurricane until they can be reunited with their families.


Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinics are committed to aiding pets rescued from Hurricane Harvey’s devastation in southeast Texas. The hurricane’s path left thousands of humans and animals homeless.

Operation Reunite was created by the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Texas Veterinary Medical Association. The program is a means of reuniting pets with their families after the families establish new homes. The program also finds families for rescued animals with no identifiable family or home.

Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinics partnered with Operation Reunite by lending their in-house boarding facilities to the cause. “Our kennel staff is prepared to take in extra pets at some of our Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic locations,” Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Lockhart’s practice manager Jeri Leseman explains. “We are very excited to be able to help our fellow Texans during this time.”

Operation Reunite’s goal is to place each pet back with his or her family within 45 days. While the four-legged hurricane survivors await the day they can finally go home to their families, they enjoy Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic’s boarding facilities where they are treated to premium pet food and daily exercise and play sessions.

“Fostering pets is currently one of the biggest needs after Hurricane Harvey,” says Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic veterinarian Dr. Steven Golla.

Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinics are proud to assist hurricane relief efforts and Operation Reunite.
