Post Date:09/13/2017 5:35 PM

Humane Society of the United States to Assist Domestic Animal Services

Collier County Domestic Animal Services (DAS) has requested assistance from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) in the wake of Hurricane Irma.  HSUS arrived early this morning to help Animal Control Officers locate animals who were displaced during the hurricane, animals that are in distress or trapped, and animals who were abandoned during the storm. 

HSUS also has teams helping to care for the shelter animals and will be relocating existing shelter animals to partnering shelters and rescues to help make space for all of the animals that enter the shelter in the next few weeks.  

Residents are encouraged to report any animals who were abandoned during the storm and any animals that are in distress.  To report an animal related complaint, contact the non-emergency Collier County Sheriff’s office dispatch line at 239-252-9300.
