Rescue Dogs and Cats From Hurricane Florence Make it Safely to Their Destination

Animals have a rough time when a hurricane strikes but his story has a happy ending. The following article published by the Washington Post.

The roughly 40 cats and dogs were being taken north to Washington from South Carolina, where Hurricane Florence was expected to hit.

But their trip soured when the van they were in broke down with a failed alternator about 90 minutes into their journey.

The group that was helping get them out of the hurricane’s path — Lucky Dog Animal Rescue based in Arlington — put out an SOS for help on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon.

They got a response.

About 50 volunteers from Looney’s K9 Rescue Transport in Lexington, S.C., arrived at a gas station along Interstate 95 near Fayetteville, N.C., to help unload the stranded cats and dogs and get them into air-conditioned cars while they waited for a new van. Many volunteers also brought water.

Eventually, all the animals made it to foster homes in the D.C. area. This Sunday at PetSmart in Gaithersburg, some of the animals that have been rescued from the Carolinas will be available for adoption.
