Dayton-headquartered Midmark Corp. has donated 10 pet containment units to Austin Pets Alive! to assist in animal rescue efforts following Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

Midmark, a provider of medical, dental and veterinary equipment and technology, donated the 10 stainless steel cases as well as a cat condo unit. The unites arrived at the Austin facility and will be used to house cats being medically treated and cared for after the hurricane.

“We were extremely excited to donate veterinary equipment to support Austin Pets Alive! in their mission to rescue and care for animals after this tragic event known as Hurricane Harvey,” said Doug Berner, sales operations manager for Midmark.

Search and rescue teams brought animals to the Austin Pets Alive! command center staged in Katy, Texas. Animals were then examined, scanned for microchips, labeled, then transported to Austin or a temporary shelter in Houston.

“We cannot express our gratitude for the continued support from the APA! community and businesses like Midmark,” said Logan Anderson, development associate, Austin Pets Alive!, “Their support has aided in our ability to continue much needed medical assistance for the influx of animals rescued from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.”
