  • Kentucky shelter helping rescue animals from Irma's path

It will show stories of animals rescued from the storm that hit Texas, featuring the rescuers and volunteers who concentrated on making sure pets were safe.

Those animals, which were flown to the Tulsa Humane Society's Emergency Rescue shelter, were processed in and, in turn, flown to shelters in Tennessee, Wisconsin and Chicago. Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south. Authorities anticipate hundreds of thousands of people and their family pets in Florida and beyond may be displaced by Hurricane Irma.

"Set them free so that they can try and seek shelter".

The approximate 1,400-mile trek opened up room in Texas animal shelters needed for pets whose owners have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey, according to California's Helen Woodward Animal Center, which helped organize the move to their facility in Rancho Santa Fe. "I would be devastated if I lost my home and my pet and know it was placed several states away".

"They are a wonderful mix of breeds from chihuahuas to Labradors, all showing much personality and good health, even after a plane ride yesterday afternoon", said Steven Stolen, CEO of The Humane Society of Indianapolis. It had stops already planned in Rockford and Freeport, so Barr contacted them to be put on the donation list. "They need both temporary housing for owned pets, but also an opportunity for the strays to be reunited with the families they've been separated from", noted HAWS Executive Director Lynn Olenik.


"We're being extremely cautious not to do that", she said.

"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.

Almost 70 dogs indirectly displaced by the devastating floods in Texas have arrived in the Pittsburgh area looking for loving families. "With social media, sometimes our dogs only stay one day", Barr said.

Once all 40 dogs and puppies arrive at Animal Friends, they will be examined.

She said they will go through the same application process to find a qualified home as she would with any other animal.
