King's Harvest rescues more Hurricane Harvey dogs

Davenport animal shelter says there are still thousands of misplaced animals

Davenport has some new canine neighbors from Texas. 

King's Harvest Pet Rescue says they've gotten six more dogs in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The dogs came from one of the many shelters in Texas that are currently overpopulated, and are being forced to euthanize their animals. Shelter workers say almost all of the dogs are sick, but will be up for adoption once they're nursed back to health. Workers also say they expect more dogs to move in because pet shelters in Texas are still full. 

"It has not gone away unfortunately," said Amanda Ellis, an employee at King's Harvest. "These animals, they've been sitting...and they just sit, and sit in the shelters and the need for placement for new animals that may have not been affected by hurricane Harvey is still there. So all these dogs and cats that were misplaced during Hurricane Harvey and haven't found a home yet are still there." 

The shelter says the biggest need at the moment is donations to cover medical needs.
