Humane Rescue Alliance Needs You to Adopt a Pet This Week so It Can Take in Hurricane Harvey Animals

Louisiana SPCA prepping for influx of animals from Texas

Animal lovers and rescue groups are rushing to help the relief effort in Texas, hoping to make sure four-footed family pets aren't left behind as the state grapples with Hurricane Harvey.

Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh is also waiting to hear how they can help. "That was another major, major lesson from Hurricane Katrina to not remove lost pets from the area, to keep them as close to the area as possible", Davies said. Rescue Village's partner shelters are working to prepare animals for transport and are unsure how long it will take them to arrive. Animal rescue and shelter administrators say it's still too early to estimate how many animals are struggling to find their way home.

If the Atlanta shelter fills up, it will ship some of its animals north to states unaffected by the hurricane in order to keep providing aid to animals in need.

"HSUS is not affiliated with local humane societies and uses only about one percent of its budget to help animals in shelters", said Kay Johnson Smith, president and CEO at the Alliance.

The Texas Department of Agriculture established the STAR Fund to receive donations that will be redirected 100 percent back to livestock producers who need the help. Adams is one of the volunteers. Those are some of the things you can do to help when disaster strikes.

The Texas Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had received 50 pets as of Tuesday afternoon, ranging from dogs to birds to hamsters.

Some of the animals will be met in New Jersey by the St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, and it's sister shelters around New Jersey. "HRA stands ready to take in animals, regardless of breed, with open arms and we look forward to finding forever homes for them in our nation's capital".
