Eight dogs and 18 cats arrived at Humane Rescue Alliance’s shelter from Norfolk Animal Care and Control in advance of Hurricane Florence.

HRA, providing animal shelter services for the District, will make the Norfolk animals available for adoption in a few days after medical check-ups.

“The more space we can open up at our shelter, the more transfers we're going to be able to bring in as this storm unfolds in the aftermath. Last year, in the hurricane season, we had about eight groups of animals coming through in a month. We’re going to need a steady stream of adopters to take these animals home, and also the animals we already have,” said HRA Vice President Claudia Roll.

Humane Rescue Alliance, with a reported save rate of animals between 88-92 percent, says they do not euthanize animals due to lack of space or length of stay.

To adopt animals evacuated from Norfolk, HRA’s shelter on Oglethorpe Street, is open every day but Monday between 12-7 p.m. Other animals are available for adoption at HRA’s New York Avenue location.
