Video of Pets Affected by Hurricane Ian Being Brought to Safety in New Jersey Warms Our Hearts

Despite the loss, pain, and fear Hurricane Ian has left in its wake, some kindhearted people are going out of their way to help those who have been displaced. That includes the animals! In an effort to create room in Florida shelters for cats and dogs who need to get off the streets, @greatergoodcharities partnered with several New Jersey and Pennsylvania rescues to bring animals there. 

In a touching TikTok video, Greater Good Charities showed the moments the rescue animals' plane touched down in New Jersey. It may have been a long time coming, but now their forevers can begin!

These people deserve massive 'thank you's for helping these animals out. It takes a village to get one animal--let alone 80--to another area for a safe adoption. Plus, the Florida shelters now have room to help more local pets. It's a win-win!

"These poor babies," agreed @lpink. "Thank you for taking them." We can't imagine what it's like to endure a hurricane while already living in a shelter. These animals deserve all the love and care they can get! Luckily, there are already tons of interested potential adopters. 

"How can I adopt any of them?" asked @luckkyluciana. "The one in the crate at the end. I will take him/her." We sure hope you can make that happen! The rescue responded, "You can find them at one of these shelters: St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, Liberty Humane Society, Pennsylvania SPCA, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue!" If you're in the area and are looking for a new best friend, check out these shelters!
