Hurricane Gustav had a direct impact on local animal shelters as well.
The Wiregrass Humane Shelter took in eight cats from the storm, Bay County animal shelters took in more than 100 dogs and 100 cats and the Wiregrass Shelter stepped in to help.
They are searching for families to give these cats a good home.
Michelle Bowdoin with the Wiregrass Humane Shelter said, "We took in quite a few of them. We have a middle cat cage room full of cats that are looking for homes."
The shelter is open seven days a week from noon until 4:30 p.m. afternoon. The cats are $45 if they are already spayed or neutered and $75 if they aren't.
