The pets were all in shelters prior to Hurricanes Ian and Fiona, but needed to be moved to make room for all the other animals that were rescued from the flooding and devastation.

The flight was made possible by PetSmart Charities and Wings of Rescue, a nonprofit that flies large-scale transports of at-risk shelter pets from disaster areas.
