BC rescue group taking in dogs who were displaced by Hurricane Harvey

Worcester County Humane Society Suspends Animal Intake

Trice also recommended that if people know where they'll be evacuating to, they should call local animal shelters and boarding facilities and ask if they can house their animals for a few days until the storm passes. Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south. The animals taking the flight to San Diego were all already in animal shelters prior to the storm, the center said on Facebook.

Supported by the Petco Foundation, Adopt-a-Pet.com developed Foster a Hurricane Pet with the goal to ensure beloved companion animals remain part of the families that cherish them and reserve the space in animal shelters for pets who need permanent adoption. "Please contact your vet to discuss the hurricane as they may be able to house pets".

The animals were in shelters before Harvey hit, but they needed to be moved to make room for hundreds of animals lost and stranded during the natural disaster.

Beaufort County Animal Services will not be accepting owner surrenders until after the threat of Hurricane Irma passes. She said, right now, she has 10 dogs with a 20-dog capacity.

Two cats and a dog have been adopted since the fees were waived, according to Bowling.




"The pictures and biographies will go up as soon as we have all of the information and we can promote what dogs are coming".

"They are a wonderful mix of breeds from chihuahuas to Labradors, all showing much personality and good health, even after a plane ride yesterday afternoon", said Steven Stolen, CEO of The Humane Society of Indianapolis. "With social media, sometimes our dogs only stay one day", Barr said.

"Those were well-intentioned animal effort rescue efforts, but moving animals away from their families has a lasting impact", she said. Alboum said shelters around the country have told similar stories.

The first of the dogs impacted by Hurricane Harvey, who are being cared for at the Humane Animal Welfare Society in Waukesha have found their forever homes! She plans to fill up the empty crates from Paws 4 Life with food donations to take back to Louisiana.
