After dozens of people and their pets were barred from entering Houston's main emergency shelter, the George R. Brown Convention Center, city and county officials reversed course. "It's heartbreaking. People are taking good care of their animals, doing the best they can", Shuttlesworth said.

Dogs being evacuated during Hurricane Harvey.

As weather experts predict more rainfall in the coming days and residual effects from the storm, shelters are seeking the public's help in preparing for the influx of animals who will be displaced from the bad weather.

Speed said the shelter has the capacity and is prepared to take animals from crowded shelters in the Lone Star state.

But Harvey could present a key test, in storm with the potential to kill thousands of animals. "We have a veterinarian here", said Salise Shuttlesworth, executive director of Friends For Life.

The Texas Governor says six-hundred boats are being used for rescue efforts. They'll also be available for adoption, perhaps sometime later this week.

At the same time, shelters surrounding Houston are moving current strays to other shelters across the country.

Some animal shelters chose to stay put. The organization along with local groups like the Houston Humane Society are also accepting financial donations and in-kind donations, including cat litter, litter boxes, towels, blankets, large wire crates, toys, treats, pet beds, newspaper and gas gift cards.

To prepare for the dog's arrival, St. Hubert's is mobilizing its Sister Shelter WayStation Program which moves and transports various breeds and sizes of dogs up and down the east coast, placing animals in targeted adoption areas.

"We've got fairgrounds and other locations that are offering property for those who don't have a place for horses", she said.

The dogs and cats will be taken to several facilities across San Diego, including Labradors and Friends Rescue, San Diego Humane Society and Rancho Coastal Humane Society.

"This isn't a dog". "I'm not going to be separated from my child, it's that simple".
