GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- A Guilford County veterinarian went down to Florida to help with relief after Hurricane Irma and wound up coming back with 18 new dogs.
Dr. Glenn Huth with Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital in Whitsett says he and another employee went down to Florida with close to 3,000 pounds supplies for vets and animal shelters impacted by the storm.
They realized shelters there were being inundated with new animals after the disaster hit. Many people lost pets or had nowhere else to put them because their homes had been destroyed. Dr. Huth says they planned to take some of the dogs that were already in the shelter back to the Triad to help out the shelters in Florida.
The goal is to make sure all the animals are up to date on care and then adopt them out to loving homes in the Triad.
