Henderson Animal Rescue Helping Pets Displaced by Harvey

Harvey relief efforts aren't just for humans. Hundreds of pets displaced by the floodwaters have been rescued and housed until they can be reunited with their owners.

That results in overcrowding for shelters, who were housing animals for adoption.

New Hope Animal Rescue in Henderson has teamed up with a shelter in Abilene to ease the burden.

New Hope Animal Rescue Director Paula Hawkins said, "These dogs actually will be up for adoption. We don't have to hold them here because they don't  belong to anyone right now. They were already in the shelter. But then after that, it's gonna be an ongoing thing for like months. They're gonna want us to help keep moving these dogs."

New Hope will receive 10 dogs on Monday. They've put out a call for volunteers to help care for the new arrivals.
