Dogs in hurricane's path find refuge in NJ shelters

Posted: Updated:
Local shelters are taking animals out of Hurricane Dorian's path in hopes of finding them forever homes, all while making room in the shelters they are coming from.
 
St. Huberts Animal Welfare Center in Madison has already taken in five dogs that arrived by van from South Carolina Tuesday.  
 
The animals were already waiting for new homes.
 
St. Huberts, along with dozens of other shelters across the country, is part of the Sister Shelter WayStation Program. They transport dogs from shelters that need help to those that can provide it. The year-round program kicks into high gear during hurricane season. 
 
The shelter is on standby for more animals and expects another transport in the next few days.
