Pets rescued from Hurricane Ida in Louisiana up for adoption in Alexandria

It’s been a long week for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. This week as Hurricane Ida pounded its way up the East Coast, a team from the AWLA flew down and rescue five dogs and four kittens from a Louisiana shelter.

“We’re glad to work with this amazing team to help dozens of animals find their homes across our community,” said Katie DeWillems, AWLA’s director of operations.

The kittens will go into foster until they grow big enough for adoption, and the dogs will be available for adoption soon.
