Missouri Humane Society Helping with Harvey Pets

Hurricane shows value of microchips for pets clinics are open

The organization along with local groups like the Houston Humane Society are also accepting financial donations and in-kind donations, including cat litter, litter boxes, towels, blankets, large wire crates, toys, treats, pet beds, newspaper and gas gift cards.

She says she's not sure what her official duties will be, but she's ready to clean up, feed animals, exercise dogs, set up kennels - whatever is required.

And firefighters in Houston rescuing people by boat on Sunday spotted two dogs on the roof of a home, said Marty Lancton, union president of the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association.

"These pets are getting a second chance and they're making room for the other ones that need the help", she said. "There'll be different jobs we'll be sending people down there to do", she added.

Employees at the Wisconsin Humane Society are getting a lot of calls from people in the Milwaukee area who want to help the animals impacted by Harvey.

In Kentucky, the Humane Society has offered to take in as many as 70 displaced animals.

Nick then claimed the two got married (which turned out to be untrue) in order to receive a part of Whitney's inheritance. Her family accused Gordon of giving her the toxic cocktail and left her to drown in the bathtub.

Some evacuees are keeping their animals with them, while others are taking them to shelters for care, planning to pick them up after the waters recede.

New Jersey's St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center - just one of many groups looking to help displaced animals - flew in at least 100 dogs from Texas, and coordinated their placement through a network of other shelters, NJ.com reported.

While Dallas does not allow animals to stay with humans in the same shelters, pets are microchipped, photographed, collared, kept in the same city, and have extensive visiting hours during the day. Numerous rescued clutch beloved pets.

Fostering is one of the best ways you can help a homeless cat or dog.

The shelter is offering microchips for $15 from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. daily through Friday, Sept. 1. From there, some will be sent to shelters across the county.
