As Hurricane Harvey lashed Texas, area animal shelters found themselves flooded with the pets of evacuees.

Overwhelmed with lost and displaced animals, rescue groups across North America came together with a shared mandate: Empty the Houston-area shelters of its existing animals to clear the way for the pets of evacuees streaming in by the truckload.

Black Dog Rescue in Surrey is one of the dozens of groups plucking dogs from the high-kill shelters. They’ve been bringing back dogs from Texas and finding them new homes in British Columbia for five years, but are now ramping up their efforts, given the dire situation.

Cindy Archer and a team of volunteers are transporting 30 dogs affected by Hurricane Harvey are headed to BC right now.

All need temporary foster homes, and permanent adopters. Check out Black Dog Rescue’s Facebook page for more information. Archer says adoption includes vetting, spay/neuter, shots and microchip.
