GREEN BAY - While many pets have been reunited with their owners in Oklahoma, dozens of other animals are still awaiting a happy ending.
Displaced animals have been pouring into the Central Oklahoma Humane Society in Oklahoma City. But an area shelter has stepped in to help with the efforts.
The dogs at the Bay Area Humane Society will soon share their space with four legged friends from the south.
"We're excited to get this group in, especially," said volunteer Marilyn Batey. "We do get other ones in but this group is special coming from Oklahoma."
Upwards of twenty dogs are expected to arrive at the shelter Thursday. And volunteers have been preparing the kennels all day for the new arrivals.
The Central Oklahoma Humane Society has been taking in displaced animals by the dozens.
"They received 36 alone on Monday night," explained Bay Area Humane Society Director of Development Karen DeBaker.
DeBaker says the Bay Area shelter is one of three from across the nation helping out.
She says the Bay Area shelter has been working with the shelter in Oklahoma for several years and felt this was a good time to step up.
"Their shelter is becoming overcrowded so we offered to help take animals from their shelter to make more space for the animals currently displaced," DeBaker said.
So the animals coming in will be the ones that were already in the shelter before the storm. Officials say they want to keep those displaced by the storm as close to home as possible.
The new arrivals will be ready for adoption by Friday or Saturday, after they receive their check-ups.
