A volunteer group in Dickinson is driving down to Texas to save 40 dogs and puppies in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Volunteers with Bakken Paws and Woofta Pet Shop will bring the animals back to the Stark County area, where they will be placed in foster shelter temporarily.

Due to the effects of the hurricane, many displaced and sheltered animals are being euthanized because of overcrowding.

“And I was like . . I’m going down to Texas, because I can’t live with that. No dogs are being euthanized. We are going to go save them, and we are going to bring them up here. We will find good homes for them,” said
Stephanie Arthaud, Bakken Paws volunteer

Arthaud said, 30 families have signed up to be foster homes for the animals until they can be adopted.
