Coastal Pet Rescue will return from evacuation ahead of Idalia, according to WTOC.
“We had 41 dogs and cats and kittens that needed to be removed and by Tuesday at 7 p.m. All of them were out.”
Coastal Pet Rescue director Lisa Scarbrough says they started hurricane prepping last Friday urging people to house the animals during the storm.
She says aside from damage to the kennel roof, they came out okay.
She says even being at full capacity, all animals had safe places to stay during the storm.
“Being able to send the animals out to fosters closer-by makes everything a little bit easier. but like I said, we started on Friday moving pets and that advantage of having additional days made sure everyone was placed by Tuesday evening.”
She says a few animals have returned with rest coming back after Labor Day.

Zander is a little love bug. He wants all of the snuggles, all of the time. He prefers being with his people, even over playing with his litter mates – which he still very much likes to do. As the runt of the litter, he puts on a tough front with the pack and will be the first to get everyone riled up. When he’s not snuggled up in your lap, he loves to play with squeaky toys and will proudly bring them to your feet. If you’re looking for a loving, loyal, sweet-as-can-be puppy, Zander is the guy for you.
Thor found himself in rescue after his owner passed away. He can be a little stand-offish when he first meets new people and it takes him a few minutes to be comfortable with new people. He would do best placed in a home without young children. He is housebroken and does wonderfully with the other dogs in his foster home, as well as the children (after very slow introductions). He loves to sleep in the bed and sit by you anytime of the day.
Stormy was one of a group of dogs that were dumped in Midway and were trapped and rescued by one of our volunteers. It has taken Stormy awhile to come around with our volunteers, but after some patient daily contact, he has started to show his playful personality. Being a long-haired dog, he was a hot mess after being in the woods for several days and was just recently groomed close to allow his coat to start over. We believe that Stormy could be a shih tsu/terrier mix. He is learning to be playful with people and has always gotten along with the smaller dogs at our facility. Trust is something that an adopter will need to earn from Stormy, but we believe he will be an affectionate playful boy with the right owner, Due to the nature of his previous life and the known fact he is a runner, A SECURELY FENCED YARD IS REQUIRED.
