Description

We are an all breed ,nationwide NO KILL non-profit rescue.
We offer shelter and care for homeless disaster relief animals, through a network of rescue and foster homes. We encourage Spayed and Neutered programs and to present education regarding animal care and welfare.
Hurricane Pets is compromised of a small group of private individuals, committed to the lives of the animals we save.
Most of these animals we rescue after a disaster remain in foster care for a period of 3 months, if after 3 months the animal is not reclaim by its owner ,that animal is then put up for adoption.
Some animals are also owner surrender and those are put up for adoption immediately.
All expenses come out of our own pockets. Adoption fees are set to a limited amount and are used to offset the cost of necessary medical and caring expenses of the animals in our care.
We are not a shelter and we operate solely from foster homes.
