ARL Dispatches Water Rescue Team to Hurricane Harvey Area

Central Dakota Humane Society staff to admit pets from Louisiana

Other organizations are also mobilizing for the flood of flood-stricken pets including the Humane Society of the United States, GreaterGood.org, Wings of Rescue and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Workers with the Humane Society rescued three dogs from a house in Dickinson, Texas, on Tuesday where floodwaters had reached chest-high, said Deputy Director of Operations Wendy Merling.

"The animals we are agreeing to take in are already in the Houston shelter system", said Hawkins.

The CEO of the Louisiana SPCA, Ana Zorrilla, said there has been "huge progress" for animals since Katrina ravaged New Orleans. They are the ones on the front lines taking in evacuated pets impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

There will be a trailer marked for dogs and cats in need of assistance and a trailer marked for people who will be cleaning up after the storm.

None of the animals being transferred to HES are owned pets, according to a news release.

Note: If you'd like to help these dogs and other animals after suffering the wrath of the hurricane, a GoFundMe page has been set up for donations at Harvey Disaster Animal Fund.

Concluded the chief, "I promise you, that I will hold anyone accountable that unlawfully restrains their dog in extreme weather conditions".

A number of sports teams, leagues and players-most notably Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Within two hours, people helped him reach his initial $200,000 goal.

As part of the relief effort, animal charities have led a drive to help rescue pets across the affected areas. "And it's right for the people, who love their animals and consider them members of the family". Volunteers are working to give pet owners what they need. "I have two Labradors and I'll tell you the thought of having your pet not being rescued I know is a very emotional and hard thing". Some pick up on stress from their owners, which can also cause an otherwise well-behaved animal to suddenly flee.

"It's hard, it's really hard", Taylor said, describing hearing the panic in people's voices.

If the Atlanta shelter fills up, it will ship some of its animals north to states unaffected by the hurricane in order to keep providing aid to animals in need.

"Most of the help that they would get normally would be coming from Houston and San Antonio areas".

Still, even with many positive stories of rescue and reunited pets, many more animals are lost.

The was group planning another flight of up to 120 dogs and cats to OR and Washington state on Wednesday, she said.

While Dallas does not allow animals to stay with humans in the same shelters, pets are microchipped, photographed, collared, kept in the same city, and have extensive visiting hours during the day.
