TIFTON, GA (WALB) - The Tifton-Tift County Humane Society is taking care of pets for hurricane evacuees who can't take their animals where they're staying.
As of Friday night, they had taken in 14 dogs, 8 cats, a rabbit, a bird and an iguana. Most of the animals came from Brunswick.
Shelter officials say it's an emotional experience for evacuees. Shelter Director Regenia Wells said, "They were crying. I was crying. It was very hard, I mean touching. I mean, you know, it could come through here, and we can be over there. I mean you have to think about it that way."
The shelter has enough space for 200 pets and will be open 24 hours a day until evacuees return home.
