Via HumaneSociety.org - Last week, the Humane Society of the United States' Animal Rescue Team helped relocate dogs and cats from the Charleston Animal Society and other shelters to help ease overcrowding in the wake of record-breaking rain and flooding that inundated much of South Carolina.
The Animal Rescue Team helped relocate 170 animals, and they estimate an additional 150 animals will need to be transported to HSUS Emergency Placement Partners.
The HSUS Disaster Relief Fund provides the support necessary to save and care for animals affected by disasters.
From supplying emergency funding to a local shelter for temporary air conditioners after theirs broke during a heat wave, to providing 40 tons of hay to feed horses left hungry by wildfires, to search, rescue, and emergency sheltering efforts after tragic storms— the HSUS is able to provide relief for animals in need.
