Two Delaware pet adoption organizations have teamed up to rescue dozens of dogs who have landed in Texas shelters due to Hurricane Harvey.
Just last week Faithful Friends Animal Society transported 37 small dogs from Texas. The no-kill shelter and Delaware Humane Association will take in additional animals as soon as health certificates have been issued for them.
Since the storm, shelters all over the region have received an increase amount of displaced dogs, requiring support from around the country.
Once the Delaware organizations receive the green light that all dogs and puppies bound for Delaware are healthy, a volunteer transport team from Faithful Friends will head south to meet up with Rockwall Pets, a Texas-based rescue organization, who will transport dogs from Austin, TX, to the meeting point in Knoxville, TN. Both organizations will post updates on their social media pages once the canines are secured in Delaware.
The organizations hope to find homes for the dogs quickly because Terxas may send more dogs our way in the coming weeks.
Approximately 20 dogs and puppies will stay at Faithful Friends, and 10 will go to Delaware Humane Association. The puppies will be held for a week of quarantine and will then be available for adoption after that. Interested adopters should check the organizations’ websites for updates on the rescue, hours of operation and details on adoption procedures.
