SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The San Diego Humane Society is looking for #HurricaneHeroes to help adopt and make room for more shelter pets from Texas and Florida.

This weekend you can adopt an adult dog, seven months or older, for $5.

Our shelters are currently full and organizers hope the weekend special will help. Communities hit by the hurricanes are desperate to make room for the thousands of animals displaced. 

"There's a lot of different circumstances and variables of why animals need help right now so we're trying to do all we can," said Kelli Schry, Communications Manager for the San Diego Humane Society.

You can look online to see what dogs are available or head to the shelter.
