Brandywine Valley SPCA takes in 44 dogs from Louisiana

GEORGETOWN, Del. – On Tuesday, the Brandywine Valley SPCA took in 44 dogs from three shelters in Louisiana.

The three shelters are located in flood-prone areas and are in the path of Hurricane Laura.

The BVSPCA says right now, many Gulf Coast shelters are emptying out. This is to keep their animals safe from things like flooding as well as to open up space for local pets who may be displaced due to the hurricane.

The 44 dogs that were flown in Tuesday are set to go to the BVSPCA’s Georgetown location.

The shelter says Wednesday morning they’ll receive another 40 dogs from Louisiana and possibly some more animals from Texas in the afternoon.

The shelter says they’ve taken on this work on without hesitating despite already being at full capacity.
