Volunteers from PAWS Chicago volunteers returned in a van on Wednesday after bringing more than 30 pets with them. These animals were already in Louisiana shelters before Hurricane Ida hit.READ MORE: 5 Killed, 39 Wounded In Weekend Shootings Across Chicago
Now those shelters will have more space to take in dogs and cats affected by the storm. These pets will be available to adopt after they get the all-clear from veterinarians.
