Shelter pets are getting out of town before Hurricane Irma hits.

For cats, make sure "unsafe nooks and crannies" in the home are sealed off so frightened cats do not have a place to hide.

If you evacuate, take your pets with you.

Still, another 100 or so will need to stay behind because they aren't considered adoptable.

"There's people opening up houses across the state for people with pets, if they can try sites like Airbnb or VRBO", she said.

A limited staff will remain at the shelter to care for the pets.

Elliott will play Week 1
So, as it stands, Elliott's suspension should start in Week Two, when the Cowboys are set to face the Denver Broncos at home. The suspension stems from an alleged domestic violence claim from one of Elliott's ex-girlfriends, Tiffany Thompson .

After the storm passes, the pets will be returned to Key Largo.

"We know the dog we took has heartworm disease, so that's one thing we know we'll have to treat, but a lot of them look like they have some other parasites and other health issues that we may need to treat as well", Lee Anne Sherrod with the Mukwonago Animal Hospital said. If it doesn't work out, people can bring them back after the storm, no questions asked. Pets will arrive September 16 and the no-kill shelter is also taking donations for food to be sent back down to the south.Pet Project Inc.in Marseilles has teamed up with Paws 4 Life out of Shreveport, Louisiana to help clear their shelter of adoptable pets in order to make room for Hurricane Harvey rescues. For instance, we have a lot of "smallies" - hamster, mice and gerbils from a closed rescue across the state line in SC. Adoption hours are 10 a.m.to 6 p.m., seven days a week. In addition to HSSET, ARC assisted Orange City Shelter, Groves Animal Control, Nederland Animal Control, Vidor Animal Control, PAWS Beaumont, and Montgomery County Animal Control in Conroe, Texas.

The shelter is equipped with a generator in the event that power is lost.

"The more people do that, the more likely it is that animals will be euthanized - and that's what we're trying to avoid", Staton said. "Their evacuation planning should include the needs of their pets including food, medications, travel items like crates, etc".

Montgomery-County Animal Shelter and Operation Pets Alive!, of Montgomery County, Texas, joined forces to save the almost 700 pets from potential euthanasia and give them dry places to stay with food, water and required medical attention.
