Rescued dogs from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma

In the midst of back-to-back storms – Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma – animal shelters, organizations and rescues all came together to transport animals affected by the storms. Camden County Animal Shelter was able to transfer in dogs from Florida and Texas, with the help of Best Friends Animal Society and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.

These dogs were already available for adoption in their respective states. The animal shelters in these states will serve as a housing unit for displaced owned pets to be reunited with their families. Please meet our Texan and Floridian dogs listed below. They will be available for adoption on Wednesday, 9/13.
