Best Friends help save pets affected by Hurricane Harvey

Harvey Evacuees Hope to Call DFW Home for Good

Beginning on September 1st, Animal Rescue Corps (ARC), a national animal protection nonprofit responded to requests for assistance from multiple animal protection agencies in Southeast Texas after the devastating destruction of Hurricane Harvey left the region under several feet of water, and without power or water. Approximately 30 of the Texas shelter animals were also sent to Oklahoma City Humane's emergency shelter as well. They are highly adoptable dogs who were in animal shelters in the Lafayette area. Alboum said shelters around the country have told similar stories.

Forty-six of the dogs were taken to the Humane Animal Welfare Society - HAWS of Waukesha. On Thursday, Charleston Animal Society will be working with partners from the SPCA Albrecht Center in Aiken, Greenville County Animal Care and Charlotte Humane Society, along with Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team in Pennsylvania to move animals out of Charleston.

With Hurricane Harvey in our rear view mirror and Hurricane Irma on the horizon, it seems appropriate to talk about pets and disasters. "Pets are a significant part of our family".

EU Court Rejects Challenges to Refugee Resettlement
The low level of relocations, the ECJ noted, was partly due to " the lack of cooperation on the part of certain member states ". Hungary and Slovakia were seeking to have the decision annulled. " Politics has raped European law and values ", he said.

MARL employees and volunteers helped them and took the dogs for a walk. "We now have 674 animals under our care", said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore. "It was an incredible response, but very stressful too". It was a stressful thing, and it was both sad and happy at the same time.

"The outpouring of support has been insane", Fadem said. Animal rescuers learned lessons during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when animal shelters were full, forcing many abandoned animals to be taken to out-of-state shelters where reunions with owners were much more hard.

"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 score flatters the US , who gave their second consecutive pitiful performance and are lucky to remain mostly unscathed. He's got bags of pace and deadly finishing ability, fitting for a man affectionately known as "the panther".

Karma Rescue representatives and volunteers flew to Austin where dogs from Houston were taken in order to free up shelter space.

He added pets can evacuate with you at pet-friendly shelters. The shelter is working to ensure all animals now in the facility are properly cared for and/or transported.
