Humane Society looks to reconnect pets lost during flooding with owners

LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - The Humane Society of Louisiana and Livingston Parish Animal Control set up a disaster relief center for pets that were displaced by the historic August flooding.

Like the people of the flood, every animal has a story including the nearly 100 dogs at the Florida Parishes Arena that were rescued from the flood.

Of the nearly 600 animals rescued by Humane Society volunteers, almost 400 still need to be reunited with their owners.

"They're spread out through other rescues that are fostering and taking care of these animals for us," said John Marshall with the Humane Society.

The heartbreaking part of all this is that many of these animals may never see their owners again. If they aren't claimed by Monday, September 26, they will be adopted to other families.
