The people may have started rehabilitation efforts but animal welfare organizations are still reeling from the huge number of displaced pets in their care. Cat shelters all over the lone star state are still filled to the brim. The smaller ones have already sent urgent pleas for help.One of the bigger shelters that answered the call was Austin Pets Alive! They have been working with these organizations to transport cats and look for their new homes.

Austin Pets Alive! has partnered with KC Pet Project to bring 27 cats and kittens to Kansas City.

The transfer was made just in the nick of time as well. KC Pet Project said the cats were in danger of being euthanized just a few days before.

This is the second time that KC Pet Project has assisted in the flights of felines from Texas in the wake of Uri. In total, they have already transported 52 cats and six dogs.
