Flood dogs now ready for adoption in Raleigh

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- It has been a few weeks since heavy rain brought flooding to South Carolina, but the struggle to find homes for some animals displaced by the floods continues. Some are up for adoption at the SPCA of Wake County in Raleigh.

Eleven dogs like Frannie, Madonna, and Nancy were evacuated from a South Carolina shelter because of the rising water.

"What we were able to do ... was rescue these already homeless dogs out of the shelters and then that gave the animal shelters in South Carolina the ability to help the animals stranded by the floods themselves," said Mondy Lamb with the SPCA of Wake County.

Five-year-old Nancy obviously needs some nourishment, but Lamb says she has lots of love to give.

"She's got something that we call happy tail, which is when their tail wags so hard it bangs into things," she explained.

Frannie is an active 1-year-old pup and Madonna is a 4-year-old hound mix. But most of the flood dogs at the no-kill adoption center in Raleigh are Lab mixes.

"Like a lot of dogs here that we have, they just crave human affection and they want that relationship with a family," said Lamb.

It'll cost you $95 to adopt one of the dogs. For more information, visit the pet adoption center at 200 Petfinder Lane in Raleigh or CLICK HERE for more information.
