Charleston County will have a last-resort shelter for folks with pets at 3765 Leeds Avenue which is next to the county jail, said Kay Hyman of the Charleston Animal Society.

For those not looking to temporarily and permanently adopt a dog, it's also possible to give back through donations. A Santa Monica-based animal rescue organization flew 30 dogs affected by Tropical Storm Harvey from Texas to the Los Angeles area over the weekend in hopes of getting them adopted.

"While we know that thousands of pets and the people who care about them have been dealt a awful blow by Hurricane Harvey, cattle are also suffering, and substantially so", Dr Dickie Vest, senior medical director of the HSUS' Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, America's biggest large animal sanctuary, said.

Once rescued, some family pets were taken hundreds of miles away and never returned to their owners, Archer said. If a silver lining has emerged from this tragedy, it's been the realization that shelters have made real advances in reducing the pet population over the past decade, she said.

"The animals coming to HAWS are animals that were already in shelters looking for new adoptive homes, many from long before Hurricane Harvey's arrival".

On Saturday, Deborah Morrow of Tulsa was up to her elbows in dogs.

Paws 4 Life was told by Barr that she could take in seven dogs and a litter of puppies or eight dogs and one to two cats and a litter of cats.

Almost 70 dogs indirectly displaced by the devastating floods in Texas have arrived in the Pittsburgh area looking for loving families.

"The animals that they are taking are animals that may have been separated from their owners, maybe were inadvertently left", he said.

In preparation for the possibility of Hurricane Irma making landfall in Southwest Florida, Collier County Domestic Animal Services will offer free microchipping this week.

"I'm part of the Oklahoma Medical Response Corp, and part of our group is an animal response unit", said Morrow. "We have our emergency shelter, but with 300 dogs and cats, it was pretty intense".

"People just really need to have a plan", he said today on "Good Morning America".
