According to SPCA Tampa Bay, its regional rescue team will meet the Louisiana SPCA team in the Tallahassee area where they will then safely transfer the animals to SPCA Tampa Bay’s Largo shelter.
The team will later arrive in Largo around 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
SPCA Tampa Bay said Hurricane Sally left many shelters powerless and without water.
