As the people of West Virginia try to recover following the devastating floods that killed 23 people and left many more homeless, there’s someone else in need: pets.

Several groups are doing what they can to help the animals displaced by the situation and there are ways you can help them.

The Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association has two mobile vet clinics operating in Kanawha and Clay Counties, in the hardest hit areas. On Tuesday, the clinic that had been operating at the Clendenin exit of I79 was closed due to lack of supplies.

They are in desperate need of monetary donations so they can purchase the supplies needed to take care of the pets affected. Click here to donate.

The American Humane Association is also on the ground — along with singer Brad Paisley, who started a Gofundme page for victims — helping devastated families. With more bad weather in the forecast, they still need assistance. Click here to donate funds.

The Marshall County Animal Shelter in Moundsville, West Virginia, visited the Greenbrier Humane Society in Lewisburg on June 28, delivering donations — two large truckloads of supplies — for animals affected in southern parts of the state. They plan to make another trip this weekend if they get a full load of donations, call 304-845-9770 to donate.

The Greenbrier Humane Society is still in need of dog shampoo and HE laundry detergent. You can make a donation via PayPal at On June 30, they were running low on cat supplies and small breed dog food, click here for more info.
