HUR­RI­CANE HAR­VEY TEXAS DOG RES­CUERS RE TURN TO TORONTO

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - NEWS -

Thirty-nine dogs from Texas dis­placed by Hur­ri­cane Har­vey ar­rived Mon­day af­ter a Toronto non-pro it or­ga­ni­za­tion res­cued them from strug­gling Hous­ton shel­ters.

The jour­ney from the hur­ri­cane-rav­aged city was fright­en­ing for the dogs, some re­fus­ing to eat or leave their cages.

For vol­un­teers, the hard­est part of the trip wasn’t un­load­ing the dogs for walks, clean­ing up soiled crates or more than 24 hours of driv­ing — it was say­ing good­bye.

“Just hav­ing three grown men, sit­ting in a van, bawl­ing their eyes out was some­thing that I was not go­ing to for­get any time soon,” said vol­un­teer Cur­tis Cluett.
