The devastating storm triggered multiple calls to the U.S. Humane Society for rescue, evacuation, and shelter of pets, farm animals, and wildlife, according to the group's Web site.

Animal experts expect Ike's effect on animals to be small compared to Hurricane Katrina three years ago.

After Katrina wreaked havoc in Louisiana, the Humane Society reported rescuing and caring for more than 10,000 abandoned and lost animals.
