Dogs rescued from Hurricane Irma need new home

- Dozens of dogs displaced by Hurricane Irma are now looking for new homes in metro-Detroit.

Michigan Humane Society workers and volunteers returned from Florida Thursday after driving 16 hours with 28 dogs.

The Michigan Humane Society has already helped move hundreds of animals to different shelters after Hurricane Harvey.

"It's something we'll take with us for the rest of our lives," said Kathy Bilitzke, MHS Director of Marketing & Communications

There are 28 dogs up for adoption, including 13 puppies.

"They've had their immunizations and vaccinations already. We'll do some additional medical examinations," said Robert Fisher, MHS Veterinarian

"This is why we're out here every day. This is what we love and have a passion for," said Bilitzke.

The Michigan Humane Society says they hope their efforts to bring these dogs home will provide some relief to those struggling in Texas and Florida.
