American Humane Rescues Pets from Hurricane Florence Flood Waters

American Humane - puppy mill rescue


American Humane - Hurricane Florence

When natural disasters strike, we are comforted to know—and honored to support—the organizations that devote themselves to helping our pets.

As residents in the Carolinas fled inland for safety in anticipation of Hurricane Florence, American Humane’s first responders headed straight for the targeted areas and successfully evacuated animals from shelters along the South Carolina coast before the storm hit. Once Florence did its damage, American Humane sent in its Northeast rescue vehicle to help with water rescues in severely flooded spots. Working alongside Code 3 Associates, American Humane used rescue boats in the flood waters to reach animals that needed their help.

We at Halo are relieved to have such courageous, dedicated people working hard for animals in need, and are proud that Halo Pet Foundation supports American Humane.

    Glad that I was able to send you a very modest donation this time, I see that so often the USA sends aid all over the world, I have not forgotten how the world turned it’s back when hurricane Katrina hit and you suffered as a country so much and the rest of the world sent zippo to our shame, I think the efforts of a few are amazing.

    Well done! Terrific! – May similar problems in Asia now find similar solutions and rescue teams for the animals too, if it is more likely to be in the way of’ cure’ rather than prevention this time around!

    I know when disaster strikes that people usually have to flee. And for those that didn’t plan or can’t take their animals with them, thank you to the responders who do go at great lengths to save these poor, stranded animals. A plan is the best to have so our pets stay safe. Kudos to you all!

    It is beyond me how those precious critters were left by their humans….During a fire in our area I took only 3 things and the first thing I took was my precious pup….Thank God for those amazing responders who worked so hard to save all lives.

    I think it’s amazing how they go out of their way to help these animals, because most of these pets in some case are left because they
    are not human (sad to say). But the ones that are reunited with their pets are overwhelmed i’m sure.

    My deepest and most heartfelt thanks to ALL of those involved in pet rescue following Florence. I was very lucky in that friends came for me AND my little cat after learning that I had decided to stay with her, come what may. Others, particularly those with children or aging parents to care for, could not make that decision.

    I am so very awed by the folks who put themselves at risk to help the vulnerable pets no one else charged with their care could or would help and protect. My heartfelt thanks for the effort and for giving me a little more hope about human kind.

    I think I would rather Die than abandon my adopted Kitty Sapphire in the event of an evacuation disaster! I have a tote packed for myself and a tote for her in case it ever comes to that living here in the high Sierras. Please people! If you have a pet that is family and you Must take care of family!
