Pets Alive rescues dogs in the path of Hurricane Harvey


Jarl said tomorrow they will send another hundred animals-both dogs and cats - on a second plane out of Texas.

"As soon as we can get down there and get on the ground, we plan on getting down there", said Patty Dawson, president of Dallas Dog Rescue Rehab and Reform.

The local humane society also helped take in animals from the Gulf Coast region in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina.

People can submit an online foster application here if they are willing to help by sheltering one or more hurricane animals for placement through Louie's Legacy.

"We only have a certain capacity as well, so we are coordinating these efforts, where we're pulling animals in from these disaster zones, but also working with shelters to keep moving them [animals] up in order to have space where they're needed most", Hill said.




The Anti-Cruelty Society said it expects to received their first animals later this week and will try to place them in homes here. Adams is one of the volunteers. There will no doubt be a large number of dogs and cats that need to find safe haven and new homes outside the flood zones.

Animal Friends has helped with housing and placing animals after natural disasters in the past, Beaver said. The remaining animals will go to the Hudson Valley SPCA, Humane Society of Walden, Suruluna Animal Rescue in Pine Bush, and an animal rescue group in Vermont.

Some Northeast Ohio animal rescues are on standby to receive animals from shelters impacted by storm-ravaged Texas and Louisiana, but so far there are no reports of animals being been transferred here. Video shows the animals being evacuated in cages via boat.

The animals will be transferred to partner shelters throughout New Jersey, including Father John's Animal House in Lafayette which has worked closely with St. Hubert's for many years. "We are taking part in our own mission from Cincinnati".
