Animal Rescue Team Deploys to Minot, North Dakota
The Souris River continues to rise, threatening people and animals
The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Rescue Team is en route to Minot, N.D., to help the animals displaced by severe flooding.
The Souris Valley Animal Shelter asked The HSUS to provide guidance and sheltering assistance at their emergency shelter.
Residents who were forced to evacuate—but had nowhere to take their pets—have been dropping their animal companions off at the emergency shelter in Minot. There are already more than 450 pets there, and The HSUS is proud to come to the aid of these animals and their owners.
As the Souris River continues to rise to unprecedented levels with crests expected next week, The HSUS will be on the ground in Minot to offer aid to the animals affected by this historic flooding.
