Our Animal Rescue Team has worked around the clock since our arrival in the Gulf Coast region readying Hurricane Isaac animals for transport to our Emergency Placement Partners in Alabama and North Carolina.

The Humane Society of Charlotte and the Montgomery Humane Society assisted with the temporary housing of 200 dogs and cats over the past four days, while eight placement partners have provided space in their adoption programs for 96 Isaac animals in just 36 hours.

The Humane Society of the United States will continue to provide care for dozens of animals displaced by Isaac, until they can find permanent homes through our Emergency Placement Partners.
