A truckload of dogs from a South Carolina shelter are being evacuated to Western New York ahead of Hurricane Florence. 

The shelter animals have not been abandoned because of the hurricane, but have been residents at the shelter.

The dogs were brought to Western New York to make room for food and supplies for areas that will be impacted by Florence. 

These animals are currently located at the SPCA Serving Erie County shelter in West Seneca. 

According to the SPCA, the animals will not be available for adoption right away. For more information on when these dogs will be available for adoption, click here.
