Operation Rescue: Over 50 Dogs Moved from Flooded Louisiana

DALLAS -- The historic flooding in Louisiana has displaced many families from their homes and neighborhoods, that includes those who walk on all fours. It`s why the SPCA of Texas is working with the humane society to move more than 50 dogs that were up for adoption in Baton Rouge out of the city.

Unfortunately, families being separated from their pets is common during emergencies like the one in Louisiana but officials are attempting to find as many lost animals as possible. Victoria Albrecht, the Communications Manager for SPCA of Texas, says everything is being done to reunite families with their pets, "From what I understand there are boots on the ground in Louisiana trying to assist with what is happening and trying to match up these families who have displaced animals with their animals."

But there's a process before these new Texans can be made available for adoption here explains Albrecht, "They basically need to be medically and behaviorally evaluated and we hope to have them available for adoption in the upcoming days."

So if you want to welcome one of these Cajun pups to the lone star state swing on by the SPCA of Texas.

If adopting isn't your thing you can still help out in other ways like making a monetary donation by going to spca.org/gift.
