Pets from the Hurricane areas are still arriving in the Capital Region.

Mohawk-Hudson Humane Society Vice President of External Affairs Director Michael Buckley tells News Channel 13 that animals who have been involved in severe weather events like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, have been through some very difficult days.

"On Thursday, they were on an airplane, Thursday night, they were in a van, and Friday morning, they were here, so they've been in 4 different places in 72 hours, so it's very stressful."

Over 40 cats and dogs are waiting for a new home.

Therefore, the Humane Society is doing what they calling an, "adoption blitz."

With homeless animals from Hurricane Harvey, and more animals sure to be needing homes after Hurricane Irma, animals are being offered this weekend at a reduced rate.

"If you adopt an animal this weekend, there's a 50% reduction in the adoption fee."

They will be offering animals for adoption during the coming weeks, but the special fee is in effect for this weekend only.
