Ahead of hurricane, animals from Va. arrive at DC’s Humane Rescue Alliance


WASHINGTON — Dogs and cats from Norfolk, Virginia, made it to the Humane Rescue Alliance in D.C. on Tuesday ahead of Hurricane Florence.

The animals from the Norfolk Animal Care Center will be available for adoption soon, according to HRA. They were evacuated to make room for the pets that may become displaced because of the hurricane, which is expected to make landfall Thursday in the Carolinas.

Officials in the Carolinas and in Virginia are warning of severe, possibly life-threatening effects spreading beyond the coastal areas following the hurricane’s arrival.

HRA is encouraging adoptions so they can make room for possibly more incoming animals.
