Some cats and dogs who got caught up in Hurricane Dorian’s path have been brought to Long Island to find their forever homes.
The North Shore Animal League America went down to North and South Carolina on Tuesday to drop off supplies and brought back more than 60 cats and dogs.
After the pets are checked out by a veterinarian, they will be groomed and put up for adoption.
“The public has been great. We had done a donation drive, people came out in the rain. We were able to clear a majority of the shelter in order to make room for these animals so the community has really, really been great,” says Marissa Owens, of the North Shore Animal League America.
The shelter is waiving adoption fees until the end of the day Sunday to make space for the new arrivals.
 

The North Shore Animal League is collecting the supplies at its Port Washington location through Monday, and it plans to head to areas affected by the storm early next week.
Forecasters say Dorian could impact parts of Florida and Georgia before making landfall somewhere along the coast -- possibly in the Carolinas.
