Cleveland Co Animal Shelter waving adoption fees before Hurricane Irma

Kentucky shelter helping rescue animals from Irma's path

Charleston County will have a last-resort shelter for folks with pets at 3765 Leeds Avenue which is next to the county jail, said Kay Hyman of the Charleston Animal Society. 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 shelter is not designed for events like Irma, so it would be better for an animal to ride out the storm in a home rather than in a shelter", Bowling said.

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.

Angel Ridge Animal Rescue, an animal shelter and sanctuary in Chartiers Township, is sponsoring a pet food and supply drive for animals displaced during Hurricane Harvey's flooding in Texas.

Barr said she has done research and has found out, for some reason, there are more strays in the south than they have up here, so that also made sense to get them up here, where she has a high adoption success rate.

Archer said the biggest challenge will be heartworm, as some cats and dogs in shelters in southern states test positive for the potentially fatal disease. Sponsored by the pet lovers at Purina, the Petco Foundation, Petco, and Bayer Animal Health LLC, Adopt-a-Pet.com helps homeless dogs, cats, and even rabbits and other animals go from alone to adopted.

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




Weeman says HSUS officials know Congress is split on many issues and they will take advantage of that to push their ant- agriculture agenda.

Pet owners who return to their home with their pets should make sure to keep their animals leashed as they readjust to their surroundings, according to the Humane Society.

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

In preparation for the possibility of Hurricane Irma making landfall in Southwest Florida, Collier County Domestic Animal Services will offer free microchipping this week.

"Those were well-intentioned animal effort rescue efforts, but moving animals away from their families has a lasting impact", she said.

Once all 40 dogs and puppies arrive at Animal Friends, they will be examined. She plans to fill up the empty crates from Paws 4 Life with food donations to take back to Louisiana.
