More than 150 animals from southeast Texas are in the Midstate following Hurricane Harvey's devastation.

According to media reports, since last week national nonprofit Animal Rescue Corps has transported 113 dogs and 41 cats to its rescue operation center in Lebanon.

The animals were in shelters before Harvey hit, but they needed to be moved to make room for hundreds of animals lost and stranded during the natural disaster.

Volunteers are caring for the animals until they can be transferred to shelter and rescue organizations that will adopt them out. The organization will post information about adopting and fostering on its Facebook page.

The organization says the biggest needs it has right now are for volunteers and monetary donations.

Volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. daily. Volunteers must be 18 or older. If you are interested in volunteering, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
