Dogs rescued in wake of Hurricane Harvey arrive in Pittsburgh

Nearly 70 Texas Shelter Dogs Flown to Pittsburgh After Harvey

Nearly 70 Texas Shelter Dogs Flown to Pittsburgh After Harvey

Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south.

With Hurricane Harvey in our rear view mirror and Hurricane Irma on the horizon, it seems appropriate to talk about pets and disasters.

Only people local to the areas affected by the storm are being asked to open their homes to foster a pet.

Pet Project Inc., a no-kill animal shelter in Marseilles, has teamed up with Paws 4 Life out of Shreveport, Louisiana to help take some of their existing animals in order to make room for local animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

Step one of the plan is to find all animals in the shelter homes.

"We want to remind people that they should not abandon their pets", KuKes said in a press release. "Please contact your vet to discuss the hurricane as they may be able to house pets". She said, right now, she has 10 dogs with a 20-dog capacity. Adopters who anticipate adopting should bring a hard-sided carrier to safely bring the dog, puppy or cat home. Bringing the dogs to Pittsburgh will allow shelters in Texas to focus on reuniting families with their displaced animals.

Instead, there was an unusual gap left in the back row, with Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale standing separately as if in a two-man team of their own.

Almost 70 dogs indirectly displaced by the devastating floods in Texas have arrived in the Pittsburgh area looking for loving families.

For those who abandon their animals, such as chaining up their dog in a backyard without food or water, they will be issued two citations - animal cruelty and abandonment.

"We don't know what we would have done if ARC hadn't come through" Said, Monica Lee, Development Director of the Humane Society of Southeast Texas, "We are so grateful for them and everyone that is working to help these animals in need".

"We are taking inventory on animal shelters' critical needs in the Lowcountry and Pee Dee regions", said Elmore.

"Bottom line is, we serve LaSalle County, but we can reach out and help when we can", Barr said. Charleston Animal Society will be pulling a number of animals from Frances R. Willis Animal Shelter in Dorchester County, the St. Frances Animal Shelter in Georgetown, SC and the Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach, FL.
