Cherryland Humane Society Needs Your Help to Bring in Animals Affected by Florence

With Hurricane Florence hitting down south, the Cherryland Humane Society wants to help rescue the animals affected.

But after an animal hording situation in Kingsley back in July, the shelter is still full.

Animal Control and Cherryland rescued 36 dogs and cats and while many are now in their forever homes, some still need some help.

“Still hiding in corners, cowering, quaking a little bit,” said Cherryland Humane Society’s animal behaviorist Tia Barbera.

The dogs were all rescued from what was described as deplorable conditions.

“A lot of these dogs, behavior wise, it’s the unknown that is scary to them,” said Barbera. “This is probably one of the first times that they’ve had socialization and this much attention and love and care.”

Cherryland says they would be more than happy to help animals from Hurricane Florence in any way they can but they first need your help.

“We have to keep a good eye on them and find them their homes before we can bring anymore in because it’s the quality of care,” said Barbera. “If we take in too many animals, then they’re not getting the care they need; they all need their own safe space, the time, the energy and that commitment.”

Giving you the chance to make a difference in these dogs’ lives.

“It’s amazing to see these animals, through the hardships and the tragedy they have gone through, to actually be able to open up to people and give kisses and hugs and rely on them when they didn’t have that in the past,” said Barbera.

Cherryland is looking for donations and volunteers, along with people to foster or adopt the animals.
