Wings of Rescue, a nonprofit, is expected to fly about 40 stray animals from Texas to the Oregon Humane Society, possibly as soon as Wednesday night.

"By transporting adoptable animals out of Louisiana we are creating much needed space to take in animals affected by Harvey", Louisiana SPCA CEO Ana Zorrilla said.

Two pups rest after being rescued in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Hill said that although they have only received one shipment of animals so far, it has made a big difference. Local and national organizations have already taken steps to evacuate animals.

The Humane Society expects thousands of animals to be impacted by the storm, spokesperson Samantha Miller told CBS News.

Relocating those homeless dogs from Texas gives them the opportunity to be adopted in other states - and allows non-homeless pets from flooded areas room to stay in the shelters, so they can stay close to home.

Pets Alive worked in conjunction with several area rescue groups in Orange County, and was the staging area for the incoming dogs.

Earlier this week, 100 animals from San Antonio Animal Care and Control were delivered to St. Hubert's shelter in New Jersey, according to Humane Society spokeswoman Thai Da Silva.

Animal Friends has helped with housing and placing animals after natural disasters in the past, Beaver said.

"I've heard the federal [rescue] is not taking the pets, but the local people with pets are taking the dogs and even going back for the dogs", she said of local volunteers. The organization says the best thing to do right now is donate money to animal groups, in Houston. Shelter in downtown Austin has been independently operating as a command center for animal rescue initiatives.
