New Jersey Shelters Welcome Dogs From Harvey-Ravaged Texas

While in New Jersey, the pets will be fed and cared for, but the ultimate goal is to return the dogs back to their homes.

The efforts expand to the four-legged victims of the hurricane, as well, with at least 100 dogs arriving in New Jersey after being evacuated from Texas' storm-ridden areas because animal shelters there are already at capacity. 8 of those pets were brought to the Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees Township.

"We're the hub for these animals, so they come here".

"In a few days, we should have all of these dogs up for adoption", Miller said.

The airlift of the dogs, which will be the first animal flight to the northeast out of Harvey-ravaged Texas, was organized by the Humane Society of the United States with the help of the Wings of Rescue organization.

"And they will be placed up for adoption through us and our partners", said St. Hubert's president and chief executive officer Heather Camisis.

Even shelters from New England and Canada are helping out to take some of the dogs.

St. Hubert's is a part of a national network of designated Emergency Placement Partners with the Humane Society, and responds to emergencies to accept animals or deploy experienced staff. The center recently tended to dogs from California after the massive wildfires previous year.

"Anything they need, we're here to help", she said.
