According to the Executive Director of the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, Patsy Murphy, these animals are coming from the hurricane-hit states of Florida and Louisiana.

Murphy says there are all displaced animals who were given over to shelters prior to the storms or given up by families who couldn't take care of the animal after the storms.
