Texas flooding brings adoptable pets to Mid-South

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Ten dogs escaped the flooding in Texas and are now looking for homes in the Mid-South.

Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County posted pictures of the dogs on its Facebook page.

The dogs were sent to Memphis to make room in Texas shelters for dogs displaced during Hurricane Harvey.

"To free up space in Texas; to get ready for those animals that would be found as a result of Hurricane Harvey," Humane Society Executive Director Roger Henderson said.

Many of the dogs have Texas-themed names: Picante, Cowgirl, Wrangler, Buckaroo, etc.

The adoption fee for the dogs is $100. Each dog is microchipped, spayed/neutered, and up-to-date on all shots.

If you're interested in opening your home to any of these animals, contact Humane Society of Memphis an Shelby County at 901-937-3900 or click here.
