MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society has been asked by a partner agency to assist in the sheltering of animals affected by Hurricane Harvey. These will be animals who were already in-shelter, not pets actually displaced by flooding, as those animals may have owners looking for them.

The Humane Society is looking for foster parents willing to open up their hearts and homes immediately to dogs and cats who are currently in our care so they can make room for the new arrivals. They are asking for a minimum commitment until at least September 15.

If you are able to foster, you can email WHS at [email protected] and someone from the foster team will follow up with you.

WHS also says they are extremely low on canned dog food right now and any donations would fill a lot of bellies. You can buy a case of dog food for $10 that is delivered right to the Humane Society.
