More than 150 animals from southeast Texas are now safe in the Midstate following Hurricane Harvey's devastation. The outcry in the past was that animals were never included in emergency contingency plans.
Montgomery-County Animal Shelter and Operation Pets Alive!, of Montgomery County, Texas, joined forces to save the almost 700 pets from potential euthanasia and give them dry places to stay with food, water and required medical attention.
"We are taking inventory on animal shelters' critical needs in the Lowcountry and Pee Dee regions", said Elmore. The shelter will not be accepting owner surrenders or strays until Hurricane Irma no longer poses a threat to SC.

Trice also recommended that if people know where they'll be evacuating to, they should call local animal shelters and boarding facilities and ask if they can house their animals for a few days until the storm passes.
That advice is echoed by the Humane Society of the USA, which says in an emergency guide posted online to make sure at the very least cats and dogs are wearing collars or identification tags. "Pets are part of the family", Fadem said. "It's been truly remarkable to watch our animal care community come together to save as many lives as possible". The air conditioning units in the large room that housed the big dogs stopped working, and both animals and volunteers dealt with the Labor Day weekend heat. "It was an incredible response, but very stressful too".
"The outpouring of support has been insane", Fadem said. We worked directly with the shelters to take animals out of the shelters for those who were displaced. A Santa Monica-based animal rescue organization flew 30 dogs affected by Tropical Storm Harvey from Texas to the Los Angeles area over the weekend in hopes of getting them adopted. Last week, around 100 dogs were airlifted from shelters throughout Texas to New Jersey to be placed for adoption. Make sure you are checking with hotels to see if they will accommodate your pet if you choose to evacuate. The shelter is working to ensure all animals now in the facility are properly cared for and/or transported.
