What To Do With Stray Dogs After Hurricane Irma?

Take Me To Post Comment Form

It was complete tragedy when the strongest recorded storm hit the Atlantic. These storms are not just devastating and terrifying for us but also for dogs as well. Dogs have become strays when they were either left behind by their families fleeing the area or may have become separated from their families among all the commotion. There are many ways you can help the stray dogs after the hurricane hit, and you don’t need to be living close by to offer assistance, just like what happened in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey.


Consider becoming a foster carer

If you aren’t evacuating consider becoming a foster carer for desperate strays. The shelters are over flowing with stray dogs. Some were already in the pound before the hurricane and there are others that are still being brought after being found among the aftermath. Fostering a dog can aid in keeping the dog safe and warm in case their families are searching for them and cannot get to the dog until it’s safe to do so. You can consider permanent care for dogs needing homes as well. You don’t need to be living there to foster as there are some flights that are flying stray dogs out to other places so this could be an option to.


Help others for fostering the dogs

There are several organizations that have taken in stray dogs and desperately need assistance. If you cannot foster or permanently adopt a dog there are other ways you can help. Shelters and organizations need bedding for the dogs. Most shelters are overpopulated so there isn’t enough to go around. Blankets, dressing gowns and old towels are fantastic for dogs to sleep on if you have some and you no longer need. Food is another desperately needed item with so many dogs all hungry. A food donation can go a long way there. You can also contact the shelter or organization and offer a donation, be it cash or something as simple as one of your TufToys. Any amount great or small will go towards helping the scared and confused strays be as comfortable as possible.


Any type of assistance is greatly appreciated. All will go towards helping stray dogs suffering from Hurricane Irma.
