Flagler Humane Society to accept animals from flood-stricken areas of South Carolina

NC rescue group to transport six dogs and six cats on Thursday, Nov. 5
PALM COAST, Fla. - Nov. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Flagler Humane Society (FHS) will receive six homeless dogs and six cats from South Carolina that have become displaced because of the recent flooding. All twelve animals will be placed up for adoption. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue has set up an Emergency Relief Center at its 82 acre sanctuary in Asheville, North Carolina and will be arranging transport to FHS on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 9 a.m.

“These animals are in tremendous and urgent need and we are fortunate enough to be able to help,” said Amy Carotenuto, Flagler Humane Society Executive Director. “We have been consistently saving 88 percent of the animals entering our shelter this year and we are so grateful to be able to help these animals left homeless because of a disaster.”

A weather system funneled tropical moisture into South Carolina in early October causing dams to break and billions of dollars of damage. A huge burden has been placed on already crowded shelters as animals lost during the floods have traveled to lower ground as waters receded. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue created a temporary Emergency Relief Center and has been working with municipalities to pull as many animals as possible to make room for the cat and dog refugees from the floods.

“We’ve visited these shelters met the animals face to face,” said Denise Bitz, President and Founder of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. “These shelters are already chock full of literally hundreds of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats, and shelter officials fear they will have to be euthanized to make room for lost local pets, displaced from the floods.”

All twelve of the animals will be given any needed medical treatment and will be placed up for adoption upon arriving at FHS. To donate towards the care of these animals or to adopt contact FHS at 386-445-1814 or at www.flaglerhumanesociety.org.

Flagler Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization formed in 1980 with the mission of sheltering and nurturing homeless animals, finding them life-long matches in forever homes, coordinating regionally to help animals and being the community resource and advocate for all Flagler’s animals.
