BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Greater Birmingham Humane Society is ready to help and also transport animals affected by Hurricane Florence.

If asked, they can move adoptable animals from shelters in the Carolinas and bring them to Birmingham. That would free up space for shelters in the path of the storm to take in strays and animals that are lost.

“I don’t know any shelter, including us, that would take animals that people might be looking for because they would never look for them in Alabama. So we take adoptable animals, meaning they are owned by the shelter or rescue and can transfer the ownership to us and we can transfer them to an adopter,” said Allison Black Cornelius, CEO Greater Birmingham Humane Society.

One thing the shelter needs is donations of new pet supplies. They are currently taking donations at their Snow Drive Location. PetSmart on Highway 280 will also be taking donations this weekend.

Here’s whats needed:

• Dog & Cat Food

• Cat Litter

• Dog & Cat Toys

• New Pet Beds

• New Collapsible Crates

• New Leashes

• New Collars

• Rubbermaid Containers

• Tarps
