MADISON — After a long flight from San Antonio to Morristown, 60 dogs are beginning their journey to new homes as rain from Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate parts of Texs.

“When the plane pulled in and the engine stopped, we could hear the barking and our hearts were just so full,” Heather Cammisa, president and chief executive officer of St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, said on Wednesday, the morning after the flight landed at Morristown Municipal Airport.

Cammisa, who has been working with animals for decades, said her heart was touched by each and every dog.

She said they are expecting another flight to come in from Texas as early as Saturday, thanks to the outpouring support of locals and their donations. They will also be sending a team to Texas to help emergency shelters.
