Broward County, FL - 20 cats and 13 dogs from Southwest Florida are up for adoption at the Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) following Hurricane Ian hitting Florida's Gulf Coast.
Domestic Animal Services in Naples was left without power following last week's storm, so the 33 animals were transported to the Humane Society of Broward County Friday with the hopes of find a home in South Florida.
HSBC staff will assist the Naples shelter with cleaning, feeding and medical examinations for the animals.
Cherie Wachter, of the HSBC, says "we have had many felines adopted over the last few weeks, so we have space for these kitty hurricane refugees. We hope to bring back more felines, and dogs too, but we need our community to help. If you’ve thought about adopting, now would be a great time so we can make space for more animals from the devastated areas on the west coast of Florida.”
