About 100 cats and kittens from areas hit hard by Hurricane Michael are heading to shelters in suburban Philadelphia and Delaware.
The Brandywine Valley SPCA teamed up with the Jacksonville Humane Society to relocate the animals.
A flight carrying the cats landed this afternoon at a private terminal in New Castle, Delaware.
A Brandywine Valley SPCA spokeswoman says they want to make room in the Florida shelters so animals lost in the hurricane can stay near their homes and hopefully be reunited with their families. Other cats are coming from a shelter damaged by the storm.
The cats have been taken to the Brandywine Valley SPCA’s rehab center in Georgetown to be evaluated.
The animals will be brought to shelters for adoption in Delaware and suburban Philadelphia, and possibly other locations around the Northeast.
