Dogs rescued in wake of Hurricane Harvey arrive in Pittsburgh

Dozens of dogs, puppies from shelter hit by Hurricane Harvey headed to Pittsburgh

Supported by the Petco Foundation, Adopt-a-Pet.com developed Foster a Hurricane Pet with the goal to ensure beloved companion animals remain part of the families that cherish them and reserve the space in animal shelters for pets who need permanent adoption. Animal Friends has partnered with Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue to bring the dogs to Pittsburgh.

Pet Project Inc.in Marseilles has teamed up with Paws 4 Life out of Shreveport, Louisiana to help clear their shelter of adoptable pets in order to make room for Hurricane Harvey rescues. Bringing the dogs to Pittsburgh will allow shelters in Texas to focus on reuniting families with their displaced animals.

Charity group Wings of Rescue also flew 180 dogs and cats from Texas to Waukegan, Illinois this week in hopes of finding them new homes, Chicago-station WGN-TV reported. Let's just say a lot of "poop bags" were handed out! Executive Director Sara Archer said 10 of those dogs will be pit-bull types, the hardest to rehome out of any shelter.

Volunteer vets with Mukwonago Animal Hospital took six for medical treatment.

"The animals that they are taking are animals that may have been separated from their owners, maybe were inadvertently left", he said.

Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday that if Congress appropriates the money, there must be enough available to cover the Harvey aid. But divisions remain among both House and Senate Republicans about tying the aid to the debt-limit increase.

Mr Grant said the shelter normally houses about 300 animals, and has also opened its doors to the pets of evacuees from the southern islands. Local animal shelters and boarding facilities and veterinarians can also be resources for pet owners as they plan ahead. "Please contact your vet to discuss the hurricane as they may be able to house pets".

"They are a wonderful mix of breeds from chihuahuas to Labradors, all showing much personality and good health, even after a plane ride yesterday afternoon", said Steven Stolen, CEO of The Humane Society of Indianapolis.

For those who abandon their animals, such as chaining up their dog in a backyard without food or water, they will be issued two citations - animal cruelty and abandonment.

Members of the public can assist with donations of towels, canned and dry dog food - and monetary donations or gift cards to local pet supply retailers, so foster homes and HAWS can purchase other supplies as needed.
