ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some are feisty and full of bark. Others are cute and cuddly. They are the animals that call the Albany Humane Society home, and they soon could have company.
"It appears that as of today that Savannah may be impacted, so we're getting prepared for that now," says AHS Executive Director Donna Strickland. She has been keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Hanna and its potential impact on coastal Camden County in southeast Georgia where Albany's partnered humane society is located.
She says, "Should this hurricane hit, and they're affected and need to evacuate, their humane society will come here to us. We're ready for them and we'll take in all their animals at that point."
Right now, the Camden County Humane Society has 185 dogs and cats. That's about 30 more than the number of animals currently housed at Albany's humane society. But Strickland says it will make room if a mandatory evacuation is ordered.
"As far as having space, we'll make do. We have lots of outdoor runs and stuff we can utilize and lots of crates on hand so they're not just packed in crates. We'll adjust and take in as many as we can."
And while disaster will hopefully be avoided, it's a partnership like this that ensures our 4-legged friends, regardless of where they are, will be safe.
Local Humane Society officials urge local residents to have an emergency evacuation plan for their pets if our area experiences a natural disaster. For more information on this, or volunteer opportunities, you can contact the Albany Humane Society at 229-888-7387.
