CLAYTON, N.J. -

When hurricanes Harvey and Irma began threatening the United States, shelters in the affected areas needed to clear out to make room for animals rescued from flooding.

With some shelter pets unable to find new homes in time, the displaced animals needed to be relocated, and New Jersey opened its doors to welcome them in.

The Gloucester County Animal Shelter was one South Jersey shelter to take in the furry friends, and after getting them settled in, these hurricane pups are finally ready for adoption.

Eight hurricane pups from Florida, Texas, and South Carolina are up for adoption and ready to call New Jersey their new fur-ever home.

Since the news broke on Tuesday, September 12th, about their adoption status, three of the eight dogs have found new homes, and the rest are patiently waiting for their new families to walk through the door.
