Anti Cruelty Accepts Rescued Animals from Oklahoma: IN Need of Foster Homes and Adopters
The Anti-Cruelty Society in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) took in well over 100 cats and dogs stranded by severe storms and flooding in Oklahoma. These animals were in the shelters prior to the storms arrival. By relocated all the animals, their odds of speedier adoption in an urban area the size of Chicago increases and also frees up space for animals who need somewhere to live because their own homes have been destroyed or severely damaged.
“As an open admission shelter, we are here to help any pet in need, including pets impacted by the storms in Oklahoma,” says Tracy Elliott, president at The Anti-Cruelty Society. “We want to do what we can to help the impacted area, so removing pets that were in the shelter prior to the storm to make room for animals needing shelter and care until they can be reunited with their families is very important. But we can’t do it without the public’s help. If you’d like to help with the local effort, we’re in need of foster homes for these pets and monetary donations to help aid in providing care for them.”
