WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Waco Animal Shelter, which is a sanctuary shelter, was on standby on Saturday morning for intake of pets in three counties in the path of Hurricane Harvey.

They have 33 kennels available for pets that may be with evacuees but are not accepted at shelters.

In anticipation of intake, the shelter asked the community for food donations, which shelter staff said has been overwhelming.

Donations are still being accepted.

"We're taking anything we can get, they can come on down and deliver them. We have had plenty get dropped off this morning. We have had a lot of folks called in to go H-E-B curbside. We went and picked up some of that, and Sam's Club," Humane Society of Central Texas Adoption Coordinator Leo Delgado said.

He added the shelter has contingency plans in place to accommodate additional intake that may come from Central Texas.

"Our intake is not closing. We are of course dedicated to Central Texas and we want to be here for everyone in Central Texas if they lose their pets or they get out," Delgado said.
