Puppies re-located from North Carolina to Green County as part of hurricane preparation
MONROE, Wis. — Seven dogs were brought in from Greenville, North Carolina, on Saturday, Sept. 22, in preparation of Hurricane Florence.
“These dogs were all adoptable dogs that were in the shelter prior to Hurricane Florence and that craziness,” said Green County Humane Society staff member Laci Westgard.

These dogs were re-located in anticipation of more dogs being lost, abandoned or brought in to shelters during the hurricane. The staff at the shelters in North Carolina wanted to make more space available for families to reunite with their animals, according to Westgard.
The dogs up for adoption range in age, size and breed.
The following dogs are up for adoption:
Trice: 5-month-old Plott Hound ix
Lux: 2-year-old Lab mix
Tiny: 7-year-old Chihuahua

Joe: 2-month-old beagle mix
Cecile: 2-month-old beagle mix
