Hurricane Dogs Rescued

Dogs who were rescued after Hurricane Maria look for new homes in the new year.

Hurricane Dogs Look For a Second Chance

Saturday, December 30, 2017 | NHS Staff

After a plane flight across the ocean, and a long transport ride, 12 dogs arrived in Omaha on December 30th.  Their journey started 100 days ago when Hurricane Maria pounded the island of St. Croix.

These refugees have been on their own, or in an emergency shelter, ever since. The Nebraska Humane Society, along with many other animal agencies, sent staff to the island to help with relief efforts. Now these dogs are ready for a second chance. NHS gladly accepted these weary souls. We tucked them into runs with comfy blankets, and plenty of space to stretch and finish healing.  

We’ll continue treating their ailments and offer them new lives as loved pets. It won’t be inexpensive, but it’s the right thing to do.  Can you help us offer them hope? Donate today »
