"This is something that will go on for weeks as Hurricane Harvey efforts continue and as Irma efforts start," said Mohawk Hudson Humane Society President and CEO Todd Cramer. "As long as the public supports us, we'll be here for weeks to come."

Some of the dogs will be available for adoption within a day or two. Others up to a week or more depending on their needs.
