How Minnesota shelters are helping pets displaced by Hurricane Harvey

Some animals will be transported to shelters in Minnesota.

Animal shelters in Minnesota are looking to help Texas dogs displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

According to WDIO and the Animal Allies Humane Society in Duluth, shelters in Texas are under a lot of stress trying to care for all the pets in need following the storm. 

So shelters throughout Minnesota are offering up some of their resources. 

The Humane Society in Duluth is looking to transport some animals from overcrowded shelters in Texas. 

The shelter explains that it would take in animals that had been at Dallas shelters before the hurricane to free up space for animals displaced by the storm. That way the displaced pets have a place to stay until they're reunited with their owners. 

The shelter says it's collecting donations because each transport costs about $3,000. It hopes to "facilitate as many transports as possible" to care for the animals and find them homes.

Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley is also raising money to send a team to Texas and bring back some animals.

WDIO says the Friends of Animals Humane Society in Cloquet has been asking for donations to help both people and pets in Texas. They've been accepting clothes, hygiene items and canned goods for people – along with leashes, kennels, blankets and food for pets.

People can also donate straight to the Houston Humane Society here
