Despite the thousands of miles between Florida, Texas and South Jersey, two local animal shelters have lent support to those affected by the storms.

With worries of shelters being overcrowded by pets displaced by the storm, animal refuge organizations across the country coordinated to find new homes for the animals already housed in Texas and Florida shelters.

Burlington County Animal Shelter (BCAS) took in 10 dogs displaced by Hurricane Harvey, and Camden County Animal Shelter (CCAS) took in five dogs from both Florida and Texas. BCAS’s dogs were officially put up for adoption on Sunday, and eight have already been adopted.
