The Anti-Cruelty Society Helps Pets in the Path of Irma

The Anti-Cruelty Society Helps Pets in the Path of Irma

On September 9, in anticipation of Hurricane Irma’s arrival in Florida, The Anti-Cruelty Society teamed up with the ASPCA to take in animals that were in the shelters in Lee County.

The Anti-Cruelty Society took in 49 cats and dogs on Saturday. This is in addition to the 84 cats and dogs the Society took in on September 4 from the Houston area that were in shelters prior to Hurricane Harvey hitting the area. Most of these pets went to foster homes immediately and have started to become available for adoption.

Cats and dogs taken in this past Saturday will become available for adoption in the next few days and weeks.

The Anti-Cruelty Society is actively recruiting dog foster homes. People interested in fostering can fill out a form at http://bit.ly/Irma_ACS.
