TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – Natural disasters not only take a toll on the lives of thousands of people, but also on many animals.
The wrath of Hurricane Joaquin has caused dozens of dogs to be displaced, so the Humane Society of Tampa Bay stepped in to help out. A group of adorable puppies was scheduled to be transferred from Louisiana to New Jersey, but under the threat of Hurricane Joaquin hitting the East Coast, the original shelter was not able to take them.
If it had not been for this act of generosity, these dogs might have been euthanized.
“We are saving all of those babies lives. All of those animals that we don’t know what would happen to them if they couldn’t get to that other shelter or if that shelter couldn’t keep them. we are saving all of their lives and getting them homes and making people happy, giving them wonderful families,” said adoption manager Carrie Peterson.
In all, 28 puppies, that’s 112 paws in you are counting, arrived to open doors and open hearts on Saturday morning.
These puppies will be up for adoption after Oct. 5.
