UPDATED Hurricane Relief Opportunities


Updated: September 1-15,  Chuck & Don’s accepted monetary donations for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts with 100% of the donations going to local Texas shelters (Austin Pets Alive and Harris County Animal Shelter). With your amazing help we raised more than $40,000! Chuck & Don’s will match the donations to further support the families and pets in need.

Now through September 30, Chuck & Don’s will assist our local shelters helping all hurricane relief efforts by collecting in-demand items (listed below). We encourage customers to purchase items to donate and/or donate gently used items.

If you have any questions on the items listed below, please ask your local Chuck & Don’s team, they are ready to help! Thank you for your generosity!

  • Collars
  • Leashes
  • Harnesses
  • Durable Dog Toys
  • Dog Toy Puzzles
  • Puppy Training Pads
  • Litter
  • Crates

One of our core values is Commitment to Communities and we have watched Hurricane Harvey’s effect on Houston and surrounding areas with heavy hearts. The historic rains and flooding have affected residences, businesses and animal organizations. Not only have their locations and supplies been compromised, but animals already in need have been joined by animals needing shelter as they are waiting to be reunited with their understandingly displaced and heartbroken owners.

We want to help Houston area families and pets. This includes sending funds to shelters and rescues.

As always, our amazing customers also want to get involved. We are accepting monetary donations at all of our stores now through September 15th. Simply round up your purchase or specify an amount and 100% will go directly to area shelters and rescues. Chuck & Don’s will also be matching donations to further support the families and pets in need.

Thank you for your continued support of pets in need across the country. If you have any questions, please ask a Chuck & Don’s Team Member.
