Shelter Animals Flown To Safety Away From Hurricane Irma's Path

It's now free to adopt an animal from the shelter, according to Bowling.

For those not looking to temporarily and permanently adopt a dog, it's also possible to give back through donations.

"The shelter is not designed for events like Irma, so it would be better for an animal to ride out the storm in a home rather than in a shelter", Bowling said.

For the most part, the 11 dogs who arrived Monday night at the Pet Refuge shelter look like the others who are already there waiting for new adoptive homes.

There is a possibility HSUS may attempt to get another measure included in the farm bill that would provide protections for pets in domestic violence cases.

The HSUS also is giving displaced pet owners pet food and crates for their pets to sleep in, and has teams on the ground in Houston that are partnering with municipalities to help reunite flood victims with their pets.

Barr said she has done research and has found out, for some reason, there are more strays in the south than they have up here, so that also made sense to get them up here, where she has a high adoption success rate. "Seventy-five dogs will be coming from Texas".

Barr said she has a former colleague who wrote an article about Paws 4 Life and their mission to help bring existing adoptable animals from the shelters up north to free up room for the hurricane animals. "With social media, sometimes our dogs only stay one day", Barr said.

"We don't know what we would have done if ARC hadn't come through" Said, Monica Lee, Development Director of the Humane Society of Southeast Texas, "We are so grateful for them and everyone that is working to help these animals in need".

For those who abandon their animals, such as chaining up their dog in a backyard without food or water, they will be issued two citations - animal cruelty and abandonment.

Beaufort County Animal Services and Hilton Head Humane will go into homes after any storm, as they did after Hurricane Matthew, to check on reports of animals left behind, feral cats and other animal needs.

"People just really need to have a plan", he said today on "Good Morning America".
