Lucy Pet Foundation Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Karen Halligan and Founder Joey Herrick Deploy to Brazoria County SPCA to Assist Animals Affected by Hurricane Harvey
Dr. Halligan will administer medical aid to animals suffering from upper respiratory problems, skin infections, ringworm and all other affects of Hurricane Harvey.
Lucy Pet Foundation (LPF) Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Karen “Doc” Halligan, LPF Founder Joey Herrick and LPF Registered Veterinary Technician Casey Jenkins will deploy to Brazoria County Texas to assist hundreds of animals in need of immediate medical care as a result of Hurricane Harvey.
“The Lucy Pet Foundation will assist in the day-to-day treatment of shelter pets and help with the constant influx of animals in need of medical care for upperrespiratory problems, skin infections, ringworm plus help manage the 300 plus animals being housed at the nearby fairgrounds,” said Dr. Halligan, who also assisted suffering animals during Hurricane Katrina and is the former Director of Veterinary Services for spcaLA.
Dr. Halligan continued, “It is just astonishing to see the number of pets who are lost, homeless or injured as a result of this devastating hurricane. It breaks your heart to see animals in pain and in shock. They are so vulnerable and afraid.”
LPF will also assist in preparing current shelter animals to be transported to other states for adoption into forever homes.
“We were asked to deploy by the Brazoria County SPCA,” said Lucy Pet Foundation Founder Joey Herrick. “We are familiar with this organization through adoption events held at this location in the past. “We are proud to be assisting after this devastating natural disaster.”
In addition to medical aid, LPF will be donating Lucy Pet’s Formulas for Life Pet Food to shelter dogs and cats. “We are very happy to be able to provide food to these traumatized pets,” added Herrick.
