NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) -- Along with people there were a lot of pets displaced by Sandy. Some were able to go to the emergency shelters too, but not all of them.
News 8 met a blue nose pit bull and a pit/lab mix that are both victims of Super Storm Sandy too.
"This one was just running around outside," said Donna Gremminger, Norwich Animal Shelter.
Gremminger says a black and white pup was found running around on Talman Street in Norwich during the storm, meanwhile Monday morning another little guy was left inside the fence at the old city pound.
"They're very nice dogs," Gremminger said, "they were very easy to handle."
However, he would rather be home than at the Norwich Animal Shelter, even though it's brand new. Over in New London they haven't gotten any storm refugees yet and it's a good thing because a tree crashed right onto the shelter shutting it down. No animals were hurt, but they had to be moved.
At East Lyme Middle School, which is a regional shelter, the towns set up a temporary animal shelter in the hallway so the families upstairs could bring their pets with them. This also meant the towns had to staff there 24 hours a day.
They were kept busy with 13 dogs, one cat, and a hamster. The Groton emergency shelter had even more pets to pamper.
"At the height of the storm we had over 40 animals," said Eva Menon, Red Cross volunteer. "Various animals from cats, dogs, bunnies, and pocket pets."
The Red Cross takes care of people and the towns take care of their pets. The animals at the emergency shelters are now back home, but others are not.
"Do you hope the families might see this," asked News 8's Tina Detelj.
"I do. Yup, they need a good home," said Gremminger.
