CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY TAKES IN DOGS DISPLACED BY HURRICANE IRMA
Thursday, September 28, 2017
3 Dogs from Southern Florida that were displaced by Hurricane Irma that hit in the middle of September have come to the Chautauqua County Humane Society. The Dogs started out as part of a group of 25 from the Brevard County Animal Care Center in Melbourne Florida. The dogs were removed from the center after issues with flooding and power following the storm. Their journey began on September 17th and was one that lasted 10 days and took them through the P.A.W.S Shelter in Anderson County, South Carolina, the Ten Lives Club in Buffalo and finally to Jamestown. The Chautauqua County Humane Society was chosen to house the three dogs because of previous cooperative efforts with the Ten Lives Club in Buffalo. Sue Bobek, Director of Animal Services at the Chautauqua County Humane Society says “We have had a partnership with Ten Lives Club for many years. After the dogs arrived to them, circumstances had changed for a few of their fosters and they had three dogs without a place to go. When approached about taking them, we said we could help just as they have helped us in the past. Rescues and shelters working together and putting the animals first is what animal welfare should be. We are all on the same team.” The three dogs are healthy and available for adoption.
