When the need is there and they are asked for help, the Capitol Area Humane Society always steps up. This weekend, it was flying 15 dogs from an animal shelter in Florida ahead of Hurricane Dorian.

The animals arrived safely at the Shelter on Grand River over the weekend. Staff at the shelter will be assessing the animals to see when they will be available for adoption. I have been told by a staff member that some might be ready by tomorrow and with others it might be a bit longer.  As always, the Human Society's first priority is the animals. They want to make sure they are healthy and ready to find their forever homes.

More trips may be needed in other areas as Hurricane Dorian continues heading for the U.S. and moving up the coast.
