GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Twenty-five four-legged companions left homeless by the devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., have arrived at a Green Bay animal shelter and are ready for adoption.
The animals were up for adoption in Moore, Oklahoma, but the shelter there says they need to make room the dozens of strays the city currently has. Those hope is that by taking the strays to the Moore animal shelter they'll be able to be reunited with their owners.
It was a 16-hour trip for the dogs, mostly puppies, from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society to the Bay Area Humane Society in Green Bay.
Central Oklahoma shelter president Christy Counts says her humane society wouldn't have been able to handle the tornado animals if that extra space wasn't created.
The Bay Area Humane Society's Karen DeBaker tells WLUK-TV the additional puppies will help increase foot traffic and overall adoptions.
