Animal Welfare League (AWL) of Trumbull County has announced that it will be offering shelter to pets who have been evacuated due to the train derailment in East Palestine.

According to a Facebook post, folks who have been evacuated and are unable to take their pets with them can contact AWL on Tuesday, February 7 at 9:00 a.m. at 330-539-7300.

AWL says space is very limited, as the shelter usually does not offer emergency temporary housing to the public, but due to the "drastic circumstances" of the derailment, they are making an exception.

Pets will not be able to be taken in until Tuesday due to limited staffing.
