Cincinnati animal shelter taking in dogs, cats displaced by Harvey

Cincinnati animal shelter taking in dogs, cats displaced by Harveyā€¯

"We only have a certain capacity as well, so we are coordinating these efforts, where we're pulling animals in from these disaster zones, but also working with shelters to keep moving them [animals] up in order to have space where they're needed most", Hill said. After a health check, it will be time to find homes. But many areas are still risky and Fasseas said she doesn't have a time line yet. Jarl said tomorrow they will send another hundred animals-both dogs and cats - on a second plane out of Texas.

PAWS has two adoption centers in IL, a main facility in Lincoln Park and another in the north suburbs. For people who've lost everything in a flood, escaping with their pets is a big deal, says Jim Boller with the animal rescue organization Code 3 Associates in Longmont.

"We could easily bring in from 60 to100".

Karen Yost, director of Father John's, said that the shelter has committed to taking "at least" seven dogs. This is going to be a huge influx. Some shelters might be looking for short-term fosters to care for the animals that were already in their care before the storm hit or to take care of owned pets while the families recover from damage and get back on their feet. The George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, the city's largest shelter, has a separate area for people with pets. "Right now we are setting up crates, like a triage area, " she said. They blew up an air mattress and used a one-person kayak to transport their two dogs and cat.

Maura Davies, vice president of communications, said they've also been getting donations of supplies and money.

One of the most powerful photos of all is surely this one of a man and his pet dog outside his ruined home in the aftermath of the storm.
