The Gloucester County Animal Shelter says eight dogs displaced from a shelter in South Carolina are now ready for adoption. The dogs arrived Saturday night.

“We were in the fortunate position of having shelter room for dogs and we have a list of people who are looking to adopt,” said Freeholder Director Robert Damminger. “These dogs will find happy homes in Gloucester County.”

Due to Irma, shelters in South Carolina moved many of their adoptable dogs north so they could take in more canines from Florida.
