LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) -- Hurricane Harvey has come and gone but people in Texas say their still picking up the pieces. Beatrice Humane Society is doing their part, Wednesday they took in 16 dogs and a ferret.

"Shelters in Texas are inundated with animals this is a very good opportunity, in a sense I'm kind of sad that a disaster had to happen for them to have opportunity," said Karolina Wlodarek, Volunteer, Tall Tales Rescue & Transport.

Karolina Wlodarek drove 9 hours, nearly 600 miles from Corpus Christi, Texas to Beatrice. She's traveling around the country redistributing animals whose shelter homes got destroyed during the hurricane.

"We're not taking anybody's pets we're moving dogs who were in facilities that were affected and giving facilities room to work on the dogs that were affected so they can be reunited with their families," she said.

"It feels good, it was a long drive, we have not been off the road, we come into our bays we set the truck and trailer and leave," said Wlodarek.

Her next stop is New York.

The Beatrice Humane Society is having two adoption days for the rescue animals in Lincoln this weekend. Details can be found
