Animal welfare groups take in dogs, cats displaced by Harvey
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Animal welfare organizations in Delaware are taking in animals from Texas and Louisiana who’ve been displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
The News Journal in Wilmington, Delaware, reported Sunday that many of the animals were up for adoption in shelters that flooded. They will now be ready to adopt in Delaware.
Some dogs and cats have arrived from a shelter in Jefferson Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana, which experienced severe flooding.
One of the Delaware groups, the Brandywine Valley SPCA, took in 50 animals. They included Chihuahuas and little Rottweiler mixes.
Renee Martini, the founder of Renee’s Rescue, worked with various organizations to retrieve animals. She said they rendezvoused with a Texas animal welfare organization in Tennessee to pick up animals that got flooded out.
