Craven Co. animal shelter in need of foster families ahead of Hurricane Matthew


NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) – Colonial Capital Humane Society is in desperate need of more foster families ahead of Hurricane Matthew.

The animal shelter said there are still six dogs and dozens of cats needing a place to stay.

“All of the dogs are very well maintained but as you see they’re in an outside shelter,” explained Jenna Outlaw, volunteer, Colonial Capital Humane Society. “A normal thunderstorm that’d be fine, but with the hurricane that was predicted to hit us as of last Friday, we went on and started making arrangements for these guys.”

If you’re interested in fostering an animal, you can pick up Wednesday and Thursday and bring the animals back on Monday.

Humane Society volunteers ask any pet owners to keep the pet inside as the weather could make it dangerous for animals to roam outside during the storm.
