Hurricane rescues became necessary when Hurricane Florence brought havoc and flooding to North Carolina in September, 2018.
OPH stepped up, along with other rescue groups, to provide foster homes for 13 Hurricane Florence dogs who had no chance for rescue. Of those 13 dogs, two had pneumonia and were hospitalized, one developed some paralysis, two were heartworm positive. They all required spay/neuter, standard vetting and testing. Lucky for those dogs to be rescued by OPH. Their medical needs were quickly addressed and all dogs received the care they needed and deserved.
