Seattle-area shelters take in Texas animals displaced by Harvey flooding

Seattle-area shelters take in Texas animals displaced by Harvey flooding

Several dogs are headed to Seattle Wednesday after being rescued from flooded shelters hit by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

"We could only take this dog, Charlie because the waters were too high", said Autumn Henley.

The CEO of the Louisiana SPCA, Ana Zorrilla, said there has been "huge progress" for animals since Katrina ravaged New Orleans.

Sam Speights tries to hold back tears while holding his dogs and surveying the damage to his home in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017, in Rockport, Texas.

According to a post on its Facebook page, the shelter is looking for dog bowls, leashes, collars, cleaning supplies, blankets, large crates, water and adult clothes.

In 2005, during Hurricane Katrina, up to 100,000 pets were separated from their owners, and fewer than half were reunited. "During this tragic time, we feel that it is our responsibility as animal welfare advocates to help our neighbors in Texas, both two-legged and four-legged". Pilots with Sierra West Airlines said the dogs had been loaded onto their Metroliner at about 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Adam Brackman said he is trying to help rescue Cindi Simpson and her 90-year-old mother from their attic, along with Simpson's three dogs and three cats. "I want them to be calm and feel good, so I have to be that way when I deal with the animals".

"There are groups on the front lines of Texas that are working really hard to get these animals out safely", she said.

After more than 50 inches of rain in some areas, flooding is causing a major headache for rescue agencies, many of which have teams stranded because of road closures.

He added that firefighters were continuing to work with pet owners in need of help.

Heartbroken over the plight of animals in the Gulf Coast, multiple Northwest Indiana rescue shelters are preparing to send assistance in the coming days.

Austin Pets Alive, an animal shelter and no-kill pet advocacy group, said it has transported hundreds of pets in the path of Hurricane Harvey to its shelter.

PETA has been busy warning families in the affected areas about the storm, encouraging them to take their animals indoors and not leave them behind in the event of an evacuation.

Officials with the Lexington Humane Society said they are on standby to take in displaced animals from Texas. Your pet's behavior may change after a crisis, becoming more aggressive or self-protective. He said the team departed from the Oklahoma-Texas border Tuesday morning.

Standing head and shoulders above a pack of dogs is Goliath, a friendly Irish Wolfhound who made the trek with his owners from Houston.
