With his bus looking more and more like Noah’s Ark, Alsup will transport the animals to an awaiting shelter in Foley, Alabama, according the Greenville News. From there, the shelter will help the pets find new homes throughout the country. Knowing he had too many cats and dogs for any one shelter, Alsop encouraged people on Facebook to adopt or foster some.
Photos and videos from his long journey show Alsup’s hollowed-out bus filled with pet kennels as he drove through the pounding rain. It’s something he has has done before, the Greenville News reports.
He bought the old school bus last year so he could drive toand Florida and save animals there, he told the paper. He also flew to Puerto Rico to help animals . Alsup says sometimes he hauls supplies in to hurricane zones — and he always hauls dogs and cats out. Rescuing animals has become his calling, he said.
