It’s been a week since dozens of dogs and cats were brought to Utah from Texas because of Hurricane Harvey. According to Stacy Frisk, executive director of the <a href=”http://www.cachehumane.org/” target=”_blank”>Cache Humane Society</a>, the seven homeless dogs that ended up in Logan seem to be doing “just fine.”
Frisk says Utahns are trying to help clear out the shelters in Houston in case some of the animals’ families come looking for them. She says the local shelter had no room for cats at this time but the seven dogs have all been spayed, received their vaccinations and otherwise becoming ready for foster care.
“The main point of sending animals to foster,” Frisk explains, “is to help them get calmed down, help them settle, help them get healthier if they come in under weight or with any health challenges. The goal is to always find them a long time family.”
Frisk says this is nothing new to the Cache Humane Society which also helped during last year’s flooding in Louisiana by taking in some of the pets.
