COOPERSTOWN (WBNG) -- The dog population at the Susquehanna SPCA is about to get a lot larger.
This weekend the SPCA will be welcoming 10 dogs from a shelter in Louisiana. These dogs were at another shelter prior to the move to Susquehanna but had to be moved because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida.
"These are not dogs that were rescued from the hurricane per se," she said, "These are dogs that were in shelters that were impacted by the hurricane," says SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes.
The SQSPCA will also be taking in another five dogs from Texas and 15 dogs from the area locally, something Haynes said is a lot, but she is confident the community will help them out.
"We took in 15 dogs yesterday, large breed dogs, which we would have never offered to take 10 dogs from Louisiana if we had known we'd be taking in 15 dogs yesterday."
"That is sort of why we put a call out for help," She said. "We know we have the greatest community, the greatest region, and people care so much about animals."
