WESTLAND, Mich. — The Michigan Humane Society is offering a chance to meet the animals taken in because of Hurricane Dorian.

On Sunday, Sept. 1, the Michigan Humane Society, along with several other groups, partnered with the Humane Society of the United States to receive a transport of over 70 animals expected to be in the path of Hurricane Dorian.

The animals in this transport were those that had already been in the care of their original shelters and were ready to find new homes. It was comprised of primarily large breed adult dogs and several adult cats.

These animals were transferred from three shelters on the east side of Florida and will now be seeking forever homes with loving families here in Michigan.

On Thursday, Sept. 5, the Michigan Humane Society is offering meet and greets with several animals.

The event is happening from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Berman Center for Animal Care, 900 North Newburgh Road in Westland.
