Southwest Airlines just flew a cabin full of animals out of storm-hit Houston.

Animals have been the ‘silent victims’ of Hurricane Harvey and now Irma, but many groups and people are stepping up to rescue them, using whatever resources and access they can to help out.

Southwest Airlines is helping to fly out stray dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters to new forever homes. Now shelters can house displaced pets whose families are displaced from homes and unable to bring their animals with them to shelters or other temporary homes.

Over 60 animals have been relocated so far, with the help of Texas rescue group Operation Pets Alive and San Diego’s Helen Woodward Animal Center, who also provided medical care for the animals.

With many animals abandoned or forced to be left behind by families fleeing the natural disaster — and many shelter animals facing sudden euthanasia with the influx of new animals — Southwest Airlines, like so many others, are offering help where and when it’s needed most, coming together during a challenging time.
