Seattle Humane taking in hundreds of pets after Hurricane Harvey

Seattle Humane taking in hundreds of pets after Hurricane Harvey

Spokane Humane Society has partnered with a Texas animal shelter, San Antonio Pets Alive, to rescue animals displaced by the flooding from Harvey.

The animals were then sorted out according to where they were going - shelters from all across Virginia, D.C., Maryland, and Pennsylvania opened their doors to assist in this effort.

Emily Klehm of the South Suburban Humane Society said that MS dogs are available for adoption.

Twenty-five pets just arrived at the South Suburban Humane Shelter as part of a major movement of shelter animals following Hurricane Harvey.

India out to whitewash Sri Lanka
We whitewashed Australia (3-0 in the T20 series in 2016), and I don't even remember which team has ever done that in Australia. Coming into the series, Rohit Sharma didn't have a great record in Sri Lanka and in the first ODI, that continued.

"All the dogs we are getting will be dogs that have been sitting in the shelters in Texas awaiting homes", Beggio explained.

Anyone who wants to help but can't bring in pets should donate to animal rescue programs in Texas, Bird said. Until 2:00 pm on Saturday, Sept. 2, all dogs now at the shelter and over six-months of age will be free to adopt. They are working with the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies on transporting the pets here.

The Nebraska Humane Society collected more than 500 kennels, 800 collars and leashes along with food bowls, toys, pet food and more much needed supplies. These are animals that were taken from the streets of their communities and need homes.

"We're so grateful for all the help we've gotten", Hallenberg said. "There were many lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina and other disaster relief efforts in the years since". Monetary donations enable HSCO to provide necessary medical care and meet the special needs of each animal.
