COLORADO SPRINGS - Around the nation, people are stepping up to help those suffering through Hurricane Harvey, and right here in southern Colorado animal shelters are preparing to take in the furry, four-legged victims.
The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region will be taking in around 50 dogs on Wednesday from its transfer and rescue partner Acadiana Animal Aid in Lafayette, La. to assist in disaster relief work due to Hurricane Harvey.
Acadiana Animal Aid is arranging transport by plane, and HSPPR and Pueblo Animal Services representatives will be on site to unload these dogs.
Around 30 dogs will be staying at HSPPR, while PAS will be accepting about 20.
The dogs will all receive a medical and behavior evaluation.
The shelters hope to make dogs available for adoption within the next few days.
