Sauve said 42 pet owners surrendered their pets to animal care on Friday, explaining they could not take them along to shelters or higher ground - a hard but much more humane solution as the storm gets closer.

- As Hurricane Irma's outer bands inch closer to Palm Beach County, animal control officers say they are hustling to rescue abandoned animals.

'We will find you, and we will prosecute you'.

Numerous animals rescued prior to Irma's arrival were tied to poles or left outside in pens, authorities explained.

Sauve said animals left outside in a potentially deadly storm are particularly at risk.

The pair are also asking anyone who can to consider sheltering the animals they come across who were left out in the storm.

In Palm Beach, pet owners who surrender their animals may have a stain on their record, which could also be held against them if they try to rescue another pet in the future.

"These are literally dogs whose owners had gone and they were left either in pens or in yards they were not able to get out of or tethered or chained", Director of Animal Care Diane Suave said to WPTV. "We will not stand for it here in Palm Beach County". "There is absolutely no excuse for doing that", she told USA Today.

'But we're not a boarding facility'.

According to Tucson News Now, 49 dogs and two cats were found in a two-day period in the area by humane authorities.

The agency set up an emergency shelter in Duncan, South Carolina, and expects to work through the week to continue moving animals to safety.

In cases where she can identify the former owners, Suave stated she will press felony charges.
