I am starting a new project inspired by the experiences I witnessed on social media during hurricane Harvey as well as broadcasted by traditional media, and my experience at George R.Brown as a volunteer in the families with pets area.
There were so many images of people rescuing perfect strangers, big guys with boated who just could not sit at home and watch people suffer on TV. When the rain finally stopped I found that I had a bad case of survivors guilt. The only thing you can do about survivors guilt is to volunteer. So that I did; I went down to the George R. Brown Convention Center and as fate would have it I was assigned the families with pets section. I was the only non trained volunteer the put in the families with pets section. The other volunteers were trained by pets4life one of the local pet rescue associations. In the families with pets section the families are allowed to bring their pets. The have to be seen by the volunteer vet. They were given any vaccines or medication they needed.
