Before the winds started whipping and the rain fell in Florida, animal shelters transported as many pets out of the area as possible.
Some of those animals will be up for adoption in the Cleveland area. Many of these cats are only weeks old but have already lived through quite a traumatic experience.
They were flown out of the Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach area ahead of Hurricane Irma.
“We’re standing among 20 cats that we were not expecting to receive,” President and CEO of the Cleveland Animal Protective League Sharon Harvey said.
Along with 20 cats, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is also now home for a dozen dogs.
“We have 12 dogs in a variety of breeds,” Harvey explained.
The animals were already in Florida shelters and were moved to make room for pets when evacuees return.
