Atlanta Animal Shelters Help In Wake of Hurricane Harvey

Atlanta Animal Shelters Help In Wake of Hurricane Harvey

People sent money and rescue groups transported unclaimed pets to shelters and new homes.

So far, Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter hasn't been contacted by animal shelters in either state, said kennel manager Mindy Natiocchioni.

Atlanta Humane Society's Christina Hill explained how animal welfare organizations across the country are working together to aid animals that have been displaced by the hurricane.

US Open counts second big upset with Naomi Osaka bouncing Angelique Kerber
The next game, Kerber clinched two break points but Osaka hit a backhand victor and a forehand down the line to save both. The Latvian won 12 of the last 14 points to seal the deal in a tie suspended at 3-1 in the final set five hours earlier.

An estimated 600,000 animals were killed or stranded in Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2003 and authorities are aiming to prevent something similar happening now. Animal rescue and shelter administrators say it's still too early to estimate how many animals are struggling to find their way home. It instead began marketing itself as the sole provider of animal care to the devastated area and launched a massive advertising campaign to secure donations.

"Some of the most heart-wrenching images we've seen are dogs tied to porches or crates left on steps which is a death sentence if flood waters continue to rise, said Angela Speed with the Wisconsin Humane Society". Some pet owners have refused to leave flooded areas without their dogs and cats, despite the dangers.

Animal Friends has helped with housing and placing animals after natural disasters in the past, Beaver said. "Luckily a family who lived in the neighborhood had a boat and they went back and rescued the three other dogs from the upstairs bathroom". "We want to empty the shelters to make space for those pets".

Several groups are on route to join forces with local organizations to help animals in need. Shelter in downtown Austin has been independently operating as a command center for animal rescue initiatives. "We are taking part in our own mission from Cincinnati".
