Video: Dogs Rescued From Louisiana Flooding Come to South Jersey for Adoption
CAMDEN, N.J. – Several dogs rescued from the recent floods in Louisiana have traveled to South Jersey to find a home. The Camden County Animal Shelter started out with 18 available puppies available for adoption on Friday, and before the shelter's doors were even opened, one of the rescued dogs, "Sophie," had already been adopted. "We're looking for someone to not replace, but to help fill a void. We lost our dog in July, we had to put him down, so we're looking for someone today to replace our Jakers, and Sophie just filled that void for us. As soon as we saw her we knew she was ours," said Dorothy Golle, a resident of West Deptford Township. The rescued dogs were transported to the animal shelter to ease the extreme overcrowding situation in Louisiana's shelters following the flooding in August. Officials are calling it the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy. For more information about adoptions, call the shelter at (856) 401-1300.
