Rescued Animals Need Homes
September 24, 2020
After being evacuated from flooded areas in Louisiana and the Panhandle in the wake of hurricanes Laura and Sally, 24 rescue dogs have found new homes in Tampa Bay.
In the past three weeks, the Society for the Prevention of Animal Cruelty have transported 78 dogs and 11 cats from rescue shelters in Louisiana and the Panhandle to the SPCA Tampa Bay in Largo. The pets were transferred to Tampa Bay to free up space in animal shelters for pets rescued after being separated from their families during the flooding.
As of Wednesday, the SPCA Tampa Bay has seven dogs from Louisiana and three from the Panhandle that are still waiting for new homes.
In addition, 11 cats from the Panhandle are ready for adoption.
More pets will be cleared for adoption after completing medical treatment by the SPCA Tampa Bay.
