Tyler Fire Department asking residents to donate pet carriers, cages

The Tyler Fire Department is asking Tyler residents for pet carriers and cages in the wake of the large number of pets being brought in with Hurricane Gustav evacuees.

Right now, pets are being received at the evacuee reception area at Faulkner Park and are being transported to Harvey Hall to be housed.

You can drop off donations at any Tyler Fire station. To view a map with Tyler Fire Department locations, click here.
