The Cedar Bend Humane Society (CBHS) accepted 20 shelter dogs who were displaced in Florida as a result of Hurricane Irma. These dogs were cared for at the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) temporary shelter in Duncan, S.C., and transported to CBHS to be made available for adoption.
These homeless animals-ranging from puppies, all ages, and many different size and breeds- came from rescue groups and shelters impacted by the disaster and were placed with the Cedar Bend Humane Society to enable these agencies to make space in their own facilities for the influx of lost pets and owned pets who need temporary shelter.
Due to these new arrivals, CBHS is asking the community to please adopt. These dogs have been through a great deal and need to find homes as soon as possible.
The large influx of animals to the Cedar Bend Humane Society will require considerable resources. Many need to be spayed or neutered and many require vaccinations. Nine dogs are heartworm positive and will require treatment. Any financial donations to the shelter will be very helpful and greatly appreciated. These can be made online at www.cedarbendhumane.org.
The adoption center, located at 1166 West Airline Highway, Waterloo, is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Adoption Center is closed on Mondays. Adoption Applications may be filled out online at www.cedarbendhumane.org.
