CLEARWATER, Fla. - Even the Humane Society of Pinellas was not immune from Tropical Storm Debby.
According to spokeswoman Twila Cole, staff and volunteers have been 'soaked to the bone' for the last 24 hours - keeping up with the rain and winds as they battered the 63-year-old shelter.
Cole said the animals are all safe and sound, albeit wet and crowded.
Parts of the facility flooded during Sunday's intense storms throughout the county.
The shelter is encouraging animal adoptions Monday, June 25 and Tuesday, June 26. Anyone who mentions 'Debby' will receive $25 off the adoption fee on any pet.
Not able to commit to pet ownership at this time? Consider fostering! A foster home can offer a dry safe place for adoptable pets during stormy conditions, provide a temporary home during recover of a medical procedure or allow for a home environment for a litter of puppies or a nursing mom.
