Hurricane Florence has taken a toll on many lives the last few weeks, not only human, but animal as well. We have saved many animals from past hurricanes like Harvey, Maria and Irma (over 100, in fact!), so as soon as we heard shelters affected by the disaster needed assistance, we wanted to help. This past weekend, we saved 9 lives from North Carolina that were in need. Best Friends Animal Society helped coordinate the transport that was brought pets to Brandywine Valley SPCA, in Georgetown, Delaware, where we went to pick up as many dogs as we could fit safely in our van. These animals were homeless in shelters in North Carolina in Hurricane Florence's path. Making space in those shelters allowed room for missing pets in the hopes that they can be reunited with their owners.
The more donations we get, the more lives we are able to save from tragedies like hurricanes and other disasters. It is important for shelters to stick together in times of need to reach the ultimate goal of saving as many lives as possible.
A few dogs have been adopted already, but these beautiful dogs are available for adoption, so if you are interested in saving a life that was affected by Hurricane Florence, pay a visit to our Adoption Center to meet them first-hand.
Please consider donating to helping save more dogs from Hurricane Florence and other urgent situations to come!
