St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center and regional placement partners recently welcomed 86 dogs and cats to Madison from Wayne County Animal Adoption and Education Center in North Carolina. Wayne County and other parts of the region that were under state of emergency due to severe flooding. As a HSUS Emergency Placement Partner, St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center is often called in to participate in large scale rescues and coordinates the safe placement and adoption of those animals.
The animals in this transport were already awaiting adoption in North Carolina and are not the pets of displaced residents. By evacuating the animals awaiting adoption from North Carolina, the local shelter can help to house lost pets of displaced residents and orchestrate a plan for recovery.
Other emergency partners will be arriving at St. Hubert’s Madison Campus to assist and accept the animals they will be transferring to their shelters.
The alliance between the HSUS and Emergency Placement Partners (EPP), helps to ensure animals will be safely transported away from disaster areas, obtain the proper care they need and get ready for adoption – all in a timely manner.
Donations towards the care of these homeless pets and other St. Hubert’s emergency transfer efforts are greatly appreciated; those who can lend support can donate at www.sthuberts.org.
