Organizations and pet lovers rescue pets in advance of Hurricane Florence


Saving Grace, a rescue in Wake Forest North Carolina accepted about two dozen dogs from shelters around the state and amassed a total of 124 — dozens more than it houses in a typical week. How to place them all in foster before the storm hit? 

Hurricane Florence was expected to bring devastating floods to eastern North Carolina and cause electrical outages across the state. As it turns out, people lined up outside the facility on Wednesday night to foster for the weekend all 124 dogs — 100 that were already at Saving Grace and two dozen from other shelters.

Saving Grace, founded in 2004 and located north of Raleigh, partners with municipal animal shelters in eastern N.C.  But Saving Grace isn’t the only group to transfer animals from shelters to foster parents.
