The HSUS also is giving displaced pet owners pet food and crates for their pets to sleep in, and has teams on the ground in Houston that are partnering with municipalities to help reunite flood victims with their pets. "Here is something people can do to help", Barr said. "Know where they're going to evacuate if they need to evacuate, listen to authorities [and] do evacuate".

Berkeley County leaders are working to identify shelters if an evacuation is ordered. Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south.Pet Project Marseilles has teamed up with Paws 4 Life out of Shreveport, Louisiana to help clear their shelter of adoptable pets in order to make room for Hurricane Harvey rescues.

The dogs are from the San Antonio Humane Society and were available for adoption before the flooding took place. Make sure you are checking with hotels to see if they will accommodate your pet if you choose to evacuate.

The BHS has also advised people to ensure their pets have collars and identification. For Florida residents, these precautions should be taken between now and Saturday, when Irma is expected to begin approaching the state.

Philip O'Brien Elementary School, Lake Region High School, & Alta Vista Elementary in #Florida are allowing people w/ pets. All the animals were so loving and patient, considering what they had been through.

The commission said on Wednesday that 27,695 asylum seekers have been relocated so far from Greece (19,244) and Italy (8,451). However, at the moment were allocated only about 25 thousand people.

Mr Grant urged the public not to tie down their pets if they are unable to keep them indoors during the passage of Hurricane Irma. "It's the safest place to be".

Local animal rights advocate Jason Cooke is in Texas and arranged for Canfield's Angels for Animals to take in three dogs. Last week, around 100 dogs were airlifted from shelters throughout Texas to New Jersey to be placed for adoption.

She said they will go through the same application process to find a qualified home as she would with any other animal.

Pets may also be disoriented after being evacuated or enduring the hurricane, so pet owners are advised to be patient. "They lost their homes; they don't want to lose their pets too".
