About 120 dogs and cats from southwest Louisiana arrived in Virginia Saturday afternoon.
The animals were removed from a shelter to give pets displaced by Hurricane Harvey a safe place to live until they can be reunited with their evacuated families.
According to the Humane Society of the United States, the animals will be placed in shelters, examined by veterinarians, and evaluated for adoption.
The dogs and cats have gone to various shelters around the region including, the Humane Rescue Alliance, Tri County Animal Shelter, Animal Lifeline, Adams County SPCA, Animal Care Sanctuary, Brandywine, Angels of Assisi, Homeward Trails, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue, Maryland SPCA.
The dogs that went to Lost Dog and Car Rescue will be available for adoption Monday at the organization’s Labor Day Adoptorama.
That’s at 7 Corners PetSmart from 12pm to 3pm. That's located at 6100 Arlington Boulevard, Falls Church, VA.
