BREINIGSVILLE, Pa. - A Lehigh Valley animal rescue is making room for some of Florida's furry friends.

The Sanctuary at Haafsville has taken in more than a dozen dogs and cats to help Florida shelters make room for an influx of animals after Hurricane Irma.

"These were animals that were sitting in shelters. Our goal is to have those shelters clear out as many as they can, so they have open cages for the animals that need to be sheltered temporarily," said Sanctuary owner, Liz Jones.

Liz Jones says she thanks her volunteers who stepped up to foster the many cats and dogs on just a few days’ notice and says she expects to find them all permanent homes soon.

"If we can help just one, we've helped another one find a home in a shelter. Just paying it forward," said Nancy Soares.
