LANSING, Mich. — On Sunday, the Capital Area Human Society is doing their part in Hurricane relief by helping animals displaced by Dorian.

15 dogs from Florida were relocated in Lansing as part of a national effort to get the animals out of the path of the storm.

Employees say these dogs are Florida shelter animals, so the dogs will be evaluated in Lansing and placed up for adoption.

"We've put a lot of effort as an industry into planning, preparing, and taking efforts like this to keep animals out of the way of danger and so we're happy to be apart of it. Obviously we help mostly animals in our community but sometimes the call comes in to do something more and we are happy to do it, said Julia Willson, the CEO and President of Capital Area Humane Shelter.

Willson added that the dogs should be ready for adoption within the next week or so.
