Humane Society helping dozens of pets displaced by flooding

Thursday, August 8, 2013 | 8:04 a.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — The Humane Society of Missouri is assisting in the evacuation of pets displaced by flooding in south-central Missouri.

Heavy rain this week has caused severe flooding in Waynesville. The St. Louis-based Humane Society's Disaster Response Team arrived in Waynesville Wednesday with a trailer that can temporarily house up to 100 animals.

As of Wednesday night, there were 35 dogs, 10 cats and a rabbit owned by people displaced by flooding. The Humane Society also agreed to take 15 adoptable dogs from the Waynesville shelter, opening space to temporarily house pets owned by those affected by flooding.

The stray dogs will be brought to St. Louis and made available for adoption.
