Hurricane Isaac Forces Animals Into Shelters

HSUS is transporting animals from hurricane-devastated areas to shelters in unaffected locations.

The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Rescue Team is using its Disaster Relief Fund to help animals affected by Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana. This past weekend, the HSUS transported 161 dogs and cats from the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter to communities outside of the storm zone, as many shelters hit by Isaac have lost power, undergone flooding, and been packed with homeless animals brought in by the storm. To free up shelter space, HSUS is working to place Isaac-affected animals in shelters outside of the region, such as the Charlotte, NC and using Twitter as a platform to find animal guardians.
