Potter League to house pets displaced by hurricane

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — The Potter League for Animals received more than 40 cats and dogs from Texas on Thursday. All of the animals, which were displaced by Hurricane Harvey, will be housed at the Middletown shelter. 

The cats and dogs were previously in Texas shelters but were transferred to make room for pets requiring emergency housing due to Hurricane Harvey.

Featured here is a video taken Thursday of the animals’ arrival. 

According to the Potter League for Animals’ Facebook page, “They (the animals) were all previously in shelters and were transferred to us to help make room for the many, many displaced and lost animals so that their owners would be able to find them as they get back on their feet due to Hurricane Harvey devastation.”

The more than 40 cats and dogs will be available for adopting in a few weeks after a mandatory isolation period.

“The animals will need to be in isolation for the next 5 days per state law and pending medical and behavioral assessments will be available for adoption in the coming weeks,” according to the Potter League for Animals.

“We ask that anyone interested in adopting or fostering to please visit our website at www.potterleague.org for more information.”
