Ohio Animal Rescuers Clear Shelters Ahead Of Irma

An Ohio animal shelter is doing its part to help four-legged evacuees of Hurricane Irma.

The League for Animal Welfare, an Ohio based no-kill shelter, sent an emergency transport team to Gainesville, Fla. to help pull homeless cats and dogs from local shelters to clear space for animals displaced by the hurricane.

The group took a total of 17 animals from Gainesville Pet Rescue, Alachua County Humane Society, Haile’s Angels Pet Rescue, and Helping Hands Pet Rescue.

The shelters say they will now hopefully be better prepared for whatever stray situation Hurricane Irma creates.
