Humane Society taking in SC shelter animals following Irma

Humane Society taking in SC shelter animals following Irma”

- Dozens of dogs displaced by Hurricane Irma are now looking for new homes in metro-Detroit. They came from Texas on a big red bus.

The dogs in this trip range from 5 months old to 3 years in age, and will be available for adoption at the Tacoma shelter, 2608 Center St., in the next few days.

As they were taken out everyone was excited to meet them.

Hurricane Harvey left pets all throughout Houston helpless and homeless. Many of them were rescued from the risky conditions and brought to safety.

The Coulee Region Humane Society says these kinds of transfers would not be possible without the community's love for animals.

Dr. Robert Fisher was in Houston, Texas helping with hurricane rescues there when he was asked to make a pit stop in Pensacola to pick up 28 dogs and puppies from a shelter that was overwhelmed.

It can take them some adjusting as they get used to the new environment.

An animal behavior specialist and veterinarians will work with the animals.

"These are some of the groups that bailed us out the last two years", he said, of the shelters in Florida that helped take in animals from SC after Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and the 1,000-year flood in 2015.

Five organizations across Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo county are working together.

One group already brought in 27 animals, another 22 arrived Thursday evening.

Shelter officials said animals already in the local shelters will not be affected in any way.

"They're getting a good shot at a forever home and a happy life", said McLaughlan.
