Irma dogs ready for adoption

Posted: Updated:

Several dogs were brought to eastern Iowa after they were displaced by Hurricane Irma in Florida.

The Cedar Bend Humane Society brought in 20 dogs after the storm. 

They were cared for in temporary shelters before arriving in Waterloo.

A few of the dogs have already been fostered out or adopted, but at last check, the shelter is full, and many pets are ready to go home.

Eager dogs arrived in Iowa over the weekend, and after they were checked out, they're ready to find homes.

Cedar Bend Humane Society Adoption Supervisor, Abby Cresap said, "We're full, for sure. We don't have any open kennels right now. I wouldn't say too many, but we're definitely full. So, if you're looking to adopt, now is definitely the time."

Twenty dogs of all shapes and sizes were brought in from Hurricane Irma-affected areas, and they are now in Waterloo.

Shelter organizers say it's important to find these pets loving homes.

"It's definitely a good feeling. The staff here is always really excited to help with stuff like that. We obviously don't know a lot about these animals have come from or what they've been through, but we're definitely excited to help and see them go to their homes," Cresap said.

Abby said even though it's hard to say no to these adorable faces, she wants to make sure these dogs find good homes.

"Make sure you're ready for a dog. Make sure you have time for a dog. Make sure if you have any other animals in the home, you bring them out and make sure it works out OK," Cresap said.

Right now, dogs can be adopted for nearly 200 dollars, but come October, they're holding a special where you can adopt shelter dogs for 100 dollars.
