Humane Society of North Texas helping animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey

On the north shore, the St. Tammany Humane Society plans to absorb any displaced animals by putting them in foster homes, said Scott Bernier, the group's chief executive officer.

More than 10 bags of dog food have been donated in Moultrie for Texas animals displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

Willson said they are ready to bring pets back to MI, and will send down more staff as needed. The Atlanta Humane Society accepted the first of what could be several truckloads of shelter animals from Louisiana on Saturday morning. All the animals that arrive from Texas will be checked at their clinic and evaluated before they go into a home. "Instead, they use a significant amount of their funds to lobby against farmers and ranchers like the ones impacted by Hurricane Harvey".

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.

"I don't even know if he can get it down there", she said of the items that will be collected at the shelter. San Antonio Animal Care Services has taken in about 200 evacuated pets so far.

Pittman says they've also made preliminary arrangements with at least one other shelter in Georgia to take in 25 other animals.

As a result of the influx of animals due to Harvey, the surrenders and long-term stays at various shelters are being shipped to nearby states to free up space.

Senate Republicans plan to use a procedural tactic to prevent Democrats from blocking the tax overhaul with a filibuster. In a Gallup poll from April, six in 10 Americans overall said upper-income earners pay too little in taxes.

Whether this is an example of animal resilience or simply a hungry pooch taking control of the situation isn't clear, Reid says, since very little research exists on resilience in companion animals.

"The goal right now is to make space and as much room as possible at animal shelters for the next three to six months when the intake increases due to strays", Denise Bash, the director of Special Projects at, said.

In 2005, during Hurricane Katrina, up to 100,000 pets were separated from their owners, and fewer than half were reunited.

The pets all of the organizations take in will eventually be available for adoption.

Some of the animals will end up at Alive Rescue on Belmont Avenue in Chicago more than 1000 miles from Houston.

Pet owners who reside in Orleans Parish and who will need the city's assistance to evacuate in an emergency should register by calling 311.
