First round of dogs rescued from Texas floods ready for adoption from Noah’s Ark


ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary says the first round of dogs rescued from the Texas floods are ready to be adopted.

Noah’s Ark is housing more than 30 dogs, from Texas, that were left behind during tropical storm Imelda.

Nearly half were sent to Rockford to save them from being euthanized.

They’re asking for help from the community.

“We need people to come and walk dogs for us. Get them out of the cages so we can clean them. We need people to foster,” said Noah’s Ark Executive Director, Stephanie Lauer. “Please open your homes if you possibly can. Even just to one dog for a few days.”

The shelter also needs blankets and beds.

This is the third natural disaster Noah’s Ark has stepped in to help the animals.

They were also called after Hurricane Katrina and Harvey.

Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary is located at 111 N 1st Street.
