Hurricane Relief Assistance Needed! Please help now!
The mission of Ty’s Animal Support Team is to encourage youth, individuals and families, to recognize and be involved in the efforts of animal support, rescue and need for philanthropic efforts to assist animals through donations (monetary and supplies) and community involvement.,
The vision of Ty’s Animal Support Team is to build an understanding in today’s youth, individuals and families of animal husbandry, animal welfare and to assist in the efforts of animal abandonment, homelessness rescue, and disaster relief though dedicated preparedness efforts, support and education.
Raised in a family of animal lovers, I believed that regardless of a pet's behavior, that pet was a family member for life. My mother donated to many pet charities and carried a card in her purse of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and ecology. Animals were a central focus of my family growing up, and during my first years of teaching, my community service projects focused on pet philanthropy, such as for victims of Hurricane Katrina and animal rescue needs.
When I reached my late 30’s, I was torn whether to move forward to pursue a Veterinary career, my dream, or having my first child. Fortunately, I was blessed with the most amazing boy that has a tremendous love for all animals.
Ty was born an animal lover. He always wanted to hug our dogs but as they were older and fragile, he became passionate about wanting to do more for all animals. When he was turning 4, Ty said he didn’t want toys for his birthday since it was so close to Christmas. He wanted to have a dog food drive to benefit "Don't Forget to Feed the Animals." This loving, kind and generous gift from my son has continued every year since. In addition, he supported a Go Fund Me fund for Second Chance Farm that allowed pets to have specialized surgery and donated truckloads of animal food and supplies through his neighborhood community and the Keller FFA program to help in animal hurricane relief.
In short, Ty has begun to be an active part of the animal community and wanted to educate others, including his peers, in the pursuit of animal philanthropy.
As we sat on the couch Friday, August 25th, 2017 Ty was in horror of what was about to hit Rockport. He asked, “What about the pets?” To which I explained, “Well Ty, we will lose some, but we must pray for them. He came up with the idea of starting an organization to help them. This was the beginning of the idea for the Texas Animal Support Team. He wanted to bring all of his friends, neighbors and the community to be a part of helping animals.
Hence, as the name he chose was unavailable, we filed as a non-profit 501(c)3 to help animals in need under the name “Ty’s Animal Support Team".
Call For Action!!
In the days to come, the Florida Coast will need our assistance. Though our website and Facebook, our goal is to raise $1,000. 100% of funds during disaster campaigns will be sent to the effected area.
Campaign encouraging children to give back at an early age. Funds to benefit 'Rescue Buckets', pets of homeless individuals, and pets of elderly that need financial support.
The Partners and Paws Campaign essembles animal rescue buckets for disaster releif efforts and emergency pet care. Funds are collected to assemble pre-need kits for immediate distribution in times of need.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, we thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like yourself.
Thank you to our supporters that helped raise funds for Hurricane Florence. Although we did not get close to our goal, I am excited to present a check for $310 dollars to assist those that helped rescue animals during this time of crisis.
