The Dakin Humane Society is trying to do their part with the storm.

The group said that they will begin welcoming animals up from North and South Carolina next week.

The catch: the group said they need to have space to bring the animals in.

Officials said that they currently have over 20 dogs in their shelter and lots of smaller animals.

"For us to be able to help, we need to be able to move. The more we can move out, the more we can take others in," said Carmine Dicenso, executive director of the Dakin Humane Society

Dakin said that all of the animals coming up are currently in shelters down south.

They're expecting their first group on Monday, which will be all dogs, and they may be able to open their doors to more dogs on Tuesday and Wednesday, depending on how many dogs they're able to move.
