Fosters, Adopters Needed for Hurricane Dorian Animal Evacuees

MONROE, N.C. – More shelter dogs and cats from the Carolina coast are being brought to the Charlotte area. WCCB TV was there as one after the other – 36 animals from one shelter alone – arrived in Monroe Wednesday night. The Humane Society of Union County drove to the Craven County Animal Shelter Wednesday morning to pick up the animals. That shelter is right on the water in New Bern, and floods during hurricanes.

If you want to help the animals that just arrived in Monroe, HSUC needs donated pet food, towels, cleaning supplies, and laundry detergent.

Humane Society of Union County Adoption and Foster Director Kim Siewert says, “Actually, what we really need is fosters, so we can get these guys out of the kennels and into a home, so that they can see what life is like, again, and not be stuck in a kennel. We are in desperate need of fosters.”
