Pasco County Animal Services in Florida takes rescue animals from the path of Hurricane Ida

The video shows how Bay Area, Florida animal rescue groups have helped by taking animals impacted by Hurricane Ida which cut a path from Louisiana to New York. Both were devasated. The director of Pasco Animal Services, Mike Shumate, got a call from Charleston Animal Society who worked with the Humane Society of South Mississippi. He says that the majority of dogs received are ready to be adopted which obviously makes it much easier for them. 


The video shows the co-director of Southern States Bully Rescue explaining how they had to work really fast to get the animals out of there. It's about quid pro quo or paying it forward. Mike makes the point very well by saying that if he helps animal shelters in Louisiana then one day they will need their help when a storm or hurricane passes through Florida. 

I think it's a very impressive network of shelters who work so effectively together under these dramatic circumstances. I also think it is only in America where you get this kind of teamwork and that may be because they appear to have more devastating storms compared to other countries together with the fact that they have many animal shelters. They had to find a way to deal with these emergencies and they certainly did.

Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
