Kentucky shelter helping rescue animals from Irma's path

Kentucky shelter helping rescue animals from Irma's path”

So on Friday, 41 dogs and cats were sent three hours north to the Houston Humane Society.

Corpus Christi's Animal Care Services said more pets than usual got loose during Hurricane Harvey and many ran away - so many that almost 50 animals had to be transferred to the Houston Humane Society Friday morning.

And they proved willing to put their money up to help pets in 2014, narrowly approving a a penny-per-$10 sales tax increase to help build the new Larimer Humane Society shelter that opened Tuesday.

DCHS staff says they are working on containing what they're calling a contagious respiratory disease. "Hats off to Broward County in Florida for taking such an honorable initiative".

The dogs were flown from the Fort Lauderdale airport by Wings of Rescue.

The Humane Society of the United States Emergency Placement program is desperately trying to move dogs from communities in the hurricanes path to other shelters around the country.

"All the animals have to be processed, medically assessed, spayed, neutered and chipped if necessary, and we'll let them get settled", Altherr said.

"They're safe, we'll take care of them".
