Homeless Dogs From Tornado Ravaged Alabama To Arrive At New York Shelter For Adoption

Homeless Dogs From Alabama

The North Shore Animal League of America, headquartered in Port Washington, New York, recently deployed two of its Emergency Rescue Teams to assist its shelter partners in the state of Alabama.

With the recent devastating tornados, not only have hundreds of animals been abandoned or lost, but sadly many displaced families were left no choice but to relinquish their pets. This has resulted in the local shelters being inundated with animals with nowhere to go.

North Shore Animal League America’s Rescue Team aided the Greater Birmingham Humane Society with this crisis, and is now in route to its Port Washington, New York headquarters with 25 dogs, 30 puppies and 23 kittens on its Mobile Rescue Unit. This has helped relieve the GBHS of some overcrowding and allows them to open up space for the displaced animals that continue to come into the shelter, including those who are being sought after by their owners.

The dog breeds that are scheduled to arrive at the Animal League in Port Washington, New York are mixed breed Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies, Chihuahuas and small Terriers.

The puppy breeds include a Chihuahua/Dachshund, Shepherd/Dachshund and a Shepherd/Corgi.

Meanwhile, a second Animal League Rescue Team is now on its way to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to assist its shelter partner, the Tuscaloosa Alabama Metro Animal Shelter.

This second Animal League Rescue Team is scheduled to arrive back in Port Washington, New York on Thursday, May 12 transporting as many animals as possible giving them hope for a new beginning.

These could be pets, please think of that as folks have not recovered enough to check.

What you need to realize is that these animals may be someone’s pets. There are areas in Alabama that are so ravaged with storm damage that these owners haven’t been able to find their animals yet. They have no power, no transportattion, and in alot of cases, NO HOMES. Although I’m sure your intentions are good, you may have taken someone’s pet so far away that they will never be reunited. PLEASE don’t adopt these animals out until you have exhausted efforts to reunite them. There are numerous websites on FB solely for the purpose of posting pics of these animals, and I beg you to use these tools before you simply try to find new owners.

The North Shore Animal League has a web site and anyone can go on it and if they see thier pet all they need to do is contact them and I am sure they will do everything to unite the owners with thier pets. In the meantime these pets need donations from the public for medical care and if you live in the area you can drop off old blankets, towels, bandages, toys etc.

These were animals that were in Alabama shelters prior to the storm. Transporting these animals up North frees up in room in these shelters so they can house the animals displaced by the storm while they wait to be reunited with their owners.

People need to learn to read the articles more carefully before you comment and get others all worked up. The animals taken up North were relinquished by their owners because they were no longer able to care for them. They are not lost pets that potentially have owners looking for them.

I think it’s wonderful that rescues are coming together nationwide to help each other out but at the same time I can’t help but think if North Shore had enough room to place 55 new dogs then surely they could’ve lent a hand to NY AC&C that euthanizes dozens of dogs on a daily basis.

I live in one of the heaviest hit areas in Alabama,I thank God the way people have come together especially for the animals. We still have areas with no internet or land line,The local schools just returned May 9th.Our local shelter is set up in a Park with volunteers sleeping in tents so residents know where to go to look for their lost family member.My point is this, with the wide spread devastation across our state it would have been very easy for some of rescused animals to have been mixed up with the shelter animals since there is a language barrier between two-legged and four-legged animals.Does anyone know if all of the animals that  were transported were  photographed ? There are lots of people searching for their pet that was seen alive after the Tornados devastated our communities…..
