18 dogs brought to NC from overcrowded Florida shelters up for adoption

WHITSETT, N.C. -- Nearly 20 dogs from Florida need a "fur-ever" home in North Carolina following Hurricane Irma.

The dogs were brought to the state because of overcrowded shelters in Florida.

According to the Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital Facebook page, pets have all been checked-out medically and are ready for their new homes.

The adoption fair takes place on Saturday from 1-3 p.m. at the Stoney Creek Pet Lodge and Rehab Center in Whitsett, North Carolina.

Veterinarian Dr. Huth will review each application to find the right fit for each pet.

Applications are available here.
