These Pets Evacuated from the Florida Keys
Prior to Hurricane Irma, the Humane Society of Broward County took in 55 cats and 5 dogs from the Upper Keys Animal Shelter to ride out the storm safely. Last week, after the hurricane had passed, the UPAS staff drove back to their shelter and assessed the area. While their building is still standing, they felt it was in the best interest of the animals that they remain at the HSBC to find new homes.
Below are just five of the dozens of remaining lovable, adoptable evacuees from Key Largo. To learn more about them, scroll to the bottom of the post. For more information, please call 954-989- 3977 ext. 6. To view all pets available for adoption or to make a donation to help the shelter, click here.
Important Note: Throughout the storm, many stray animals were surrendered to the shelter. If you have lost your pet and see it listed on our website, please call the Animal Admissions line at 954-266-6873. Because we have been receiving a lot of phone calls since the storm, chances are you will be sent to a voice mailbox. However, please list your name, phone number, and say that your pet was turned in and is listed on the website. Be sure to mention the pet’s ID number. A member from that team will call you back as soon as they can.
