First hand account of our Technician Manager Chelsea's experience in volunteering helping pets in need after Harvey's devastation.


Hard times often reveal the true nature of people, for Houston, Hurricane Harvey defined the community. During my three days of volunteering, I saw firsthand what "Texas Strong" really means. Before my arrival at Houston Pets Alive! I read heartwarming stories of those who were lucky enough to be on high ground. They opened up their homes to their neighbors and loaned out their cars so others could get to work.

"We have been working with Dr. Taylor for several years now. She is skilled and knowledgeable. More importantly, she listens and works with me. I have been involved with dogs for over 35 years as a breeder and exhibitor and need a vet who works with me as a team.

I highly recommend Dr. Taylor and look forward to continuing my professional relationship with her on behalf of my pets." Read More
