Cache Humane Society Takes In Dogs, Helps Texas Shelters

Animals being resuced in Texas

Several animal shelters in Utah including the Cache Humane Society have taken in pets from Texas to make sure animal shelters there have room for pets lost or left behind in Hurricane Harvey.

Transfer Coordinator Sadie Smith says that the seven dogs that arrived to the Logan shelter were pets that were already in the shelter system before the hurricane hit. Paws For Life Utah transported the pets from Texas to Utah and dropped them off at various shelters including Rescue Rovers and West Valley City Animal Services.

Executive Director Stacey Frisk says that having seven additional dogs has filled the Logan shelter. They will be ready for adoptions once the veterinarian OKs them after spay and neuter surgeries and they have spent a week with foster families.
