The Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) will be transporting dog and cat food, puppy pads, pelleted cat litter, crates, and other pet supplies to the Sevier County Humane Society on Tuesday, December 6, to assist with the shelter’s needs following the wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
The Sevier County Humane Society has opened an emergency shelter location at the Sevier County Fairgrounds. At this location, the shelter is accepting stray animals as well as offering shelter for pets whose owners have been displaced from their homes due to the fires. The public has been instructed to go to the fairgrounds to search for any missing pets. Pet owners from the area can also board pets at this location temporarily if their homes were destroyed. Heather Hamilton, Operations Manager at the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center, contacted Sevier County Humane Society to see if the shelter was in need of supplies.
“After talking with Sevier County Humane Society staff, it became clear that the best way for us to help was to provide supplies,” Heather Hamilton says. “With so many pet owners searching for pets displaced from the fire, moving victim animals out of the area would not be helpful, as it would make reuniting animals with owners impossible. So, instead, we’re hoping these supplies will assist with the influx of animals this shelter is serving right now.”
IndyHumane staff will begin loading a rental truck at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning with 10 pallets of supplies, including pelleted litter, which is gentle on the paw pads of animals suffering from burns. Staff plan to depart from the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center at 456 N. Holmes Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46222 at 11 a.m. and begin the drive to Sevier County.
“With the devastating impact these wildfires have had on the area, the last thing this shelter needs to be worrying about is where the next meal for the animals will be coming from or how they’re going to provide all the needed supplies to care for so many displaced animals,” Hamilton says. “Our hearts are breaking for the people and animals affected by these devastating fires, and we just want to help however we can.”
