After a 10 hour drive, our Disaster Response Team rose early and got right to work in the emergency shelter north of Atlanta. Many of the animals are from Fulton County Animal Control, whose building flooded during Hurricane Irma. The animals are here while the shelter is cleaned and repaired. Our skilled emergency shelter team can help in many different capacities – whether feeding and walking dogs, administering medication, or simply giving displaced pets much-needed TLC.
