Dog rescue group helps treat animals after Ida
LOXAHATCHEE GROVES, FL (CNN) – As Louisiana continues to recover from Ida’s unimaginable devastation, a dog rescue group is doing what they can to help care for the animals left behind.
These Ida dogs are truly grateful.
More than a dozen were rescued last weekend before the storm even hit.
“We’ve seen from past storms the devastation it can do, and how these animals and shelters are suffering without electricity, water and animal feed, we always like to be proactive,” said Lauree Simmons of Big Dog Ranch Rescue. “We went up the day before the storm and helped clean up a shelter.”
Then Big Dog Ranch Rescue came out again to save more dogs.
“We were up there yesterday, installing generators and shelters without electricity, they had no water, they had to boil their water and no power to boil their water, so we took over 100 cases. of water and 5,000 pounds of animal supplies to five different rescues in two different shelters, “said Simmons.” We just wanted to make it easier for them to care for their pets, so they can continue to rebuild and clean up their properties.
The second round of dogs will come home tonight.
Even though they will be in quarantine for two weeks, Big Dog Ranch Rescue ‘has more than 850 dogs on their property available for adoption.
