"We have been patrolling the hardest hit communities and are helping people and their beloved pets by providing supplies, food and medical care. We have also brought in many many displaced animals that have been separated from their owners," the shelter posted on its Facebook page.
Although the shelter has been working diligently with HSUS and the Pet Safe Coalition,to reunite people with their pets, they are currently at maximum capacity and desperately need more space.
"We are expecting things to get worse before they get better and help is needed from the community," a spokesperson for the shelter stated.
