Shelter dogs from the Carolinas arrive in New Jersey

More than a dozen dogs have joined the Monmouth County SPCA family. They came from North and South Carolina ahead of the hurricane landfall and are in need of a forever home.

The rescue group is taking in shelter dogs from Hurricane Florence to help the shelters down south free up space. 20 have arrived since Wednesday.

Next week, more furry friends will be arriving in New Jersey. Facilities manager Ken McKeel will be leaving on Monday to bring back about 35 more dogs.

The staff is working around the clock, checking each and every one of the pups to get them ready for adoption.

If you can't adopt one of these cuties, you can help in other ways. Monmouth SPCA has started collecting donations to bring to the shelters in the Carolinas next week.
