SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Dogs and puppies flown to San Diego - to make room in Louisiana shelters for pets displaced by Hurricane Harvey - are now available for adoption.

More than 30 dogs went up for adoption Wednesday at the San Diego Humane Society's San Diego campus at 5500 Gaines Street.

The pets were transferred by a "Wings of Rescue" flight to San Diego Humane, Rancho Coastal Humane Society, and Labradors and Friends from Acadiana Animal Aid to make space for animals being evacuated from Texas and Louisiana due to Hurricane Harvey.

"They are highly adoptable dogs who were in animal shelters in the Lafayette area. They do not have owners who will be searching for them," San Diego Humane said.

The local effort brought about 85 dogs and 20 cats previously living at a shelter in Louisiana to San Diego.

All adoptable dogs are spayed and neutered, have current vaccinations, are microchipped, and will go to their new homes with a certificate for a free veterinary exam.

The society also includes 30 days of worry-free pet insurance from Trupanion and their first bag of food.

Adoption hours are daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on a first come first served basis. San Diego Humane recommends anyone coming to adopt bring a pet carrier to safely bring their new pet home.

Pets waiting to be adopted can be found on San Diego Humane Society's website here. For more information, contact the society at 619-299-7012.
