AIKEN, S.C. (WJBF) – More than a dozen dogs transferred to Aiken right before Hurricane Matthew hit Charleston are still waiting for new homes.

To make room for animals that would be affected by the flooding, the Charleston Animal Society had to re-home 23 dogs.

So far, 5 of the dogs have found forever homes in Aiken and 13 are available for adoption.

SPCA Community Outreach Director, Claire Roberson says the rest of the dogs are being treated for illnesses.

“Right now we are looking for homes. Definitely looking for homes,” Roberson told WJBF NewsChannel 6. “Also monetary donations for medical care is really big right now. We have a lot of dogs that came to us, who needed spaying and neutering, and vaccines.”

Anyone interested in adopting a four-legged friend can stop by the SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare at 199 Willow Run Road in Aiken, South Carolina.
