An emergency animal shelter will be available at the Red River Valley fairgrounds for anyone affected by the North Dakota/Minnesota flooding, according to Adopt A Pet of Fargo Moorhead. The rescue is working with the F-M Humane Society and Fargo-Moorhead emergency managers.
The shelter is located at the Schollander Pavilion at the fairgrounds in West Fargo on West Main Avenue. The shelter should be up and running by this afternoon (Thursday), according to one of the workers.
Volunteers are needed at this time. If you would like more information about volunteering or finding shelter for your pet, call the emergency shelter at 701.281.1574.
The F-M Humane Society encourages people to prepare an emergency kit for their pets and should include medications, vet records, ID tags, food and water, photos and descriptions of the pets, a pet carrier, leashes and blankets.
Josh, Ace, the cats, our foster dog and I should be safe from the flooding Red River. We have some spare room so if anyone needs a place to leave their pets or a place to stay in an emergency, email me at Lindsay@thatmutt.com or call me at 701.368.2953.
Plan now for your pets so you don’t have to make last minute decisions or leave them behind in an emergency. Sheyenne River Kennels in West Fargo has space available for dogs over the weekend as of Thursday morning.
