Helping Pets in Hurricane Gustav's Path

The Bay County Animal Shelter has taken in a few hundred dogs and cats from Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.

Shelter director Jim Crosby says the animals are strays predominantly from New Orleans and surrounding communities.

With the threat of flooding, Louisiana officials put out a call for help to find at least temporary housing for the dogs, cats, a pig and several rabbits.

Crosby says these animals are now available for adoption and those that can't find homes will make the trip back to Louisiana.

If you are interested in adopting a stray dog or cat from New Orleans, contact the Bay County Animal Shelter during normal business hours for more information; call 850-767-3333.
