ARC will provide daily care until they can be transferred to shelter and rescue organizations that will ultimately adopt them into loving homes. Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south.

These dogs were homeless before Hurricane Harvey flooded the Houston area, where pet shelters are scrambling to make room for pets who have been separated from their people by the floods.

Animal Rescue Corps performed Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort in conjunction with The Bissell Pet Foundation, HEARTS, LLC of Greenville TN, My Buddy's Transport of Byron GA.

With Hurricane Harvey in our rear view mirror and Hurricane Irma on the horizon, it seems appropriate to talk about pets and disasters.

Officials warned that pets should not be taken to animal shelters with the idea that they can board there during the storm. And their skills are incredibly impactful on the people and pets they serve.

"We're being extremely cautious not to do that", she said.

Almost 70 dogs indirectly displaced by the devastating floods in Texas have arrived in the Pittsburgh area looking for loving families. "We now have 674 animals under our care", said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore.

"We know the dog we took has heartworm disease, so that's one thing we know we'll have to treat, but a lot of them look like they have some other parasites and other health issues that we may need to treat as well", Lee Anne Sherrod with the Mukwonago Animal Hospital said.

"It's fantastic to see all of these people and groups come together to help the animals affected by this storm", said Aaron Johnson, director, Montgomery County Animal Shelter.

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. Executive Director Sara Archer said 10 of those dogs will be pit-bull types, the hardest to rehome out of any shelter. She plans to fill up the empty crates from Paws 4 Life with food donations to take back to Louisiana. "Here is something people can do to help", Barr said.
