You don't have to live on the East Coast to adopt a pet displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Sixty dogs and cats facing euthanization at overcrowded shelters in New York and New Jersey were transported to a San Diego shelter yesterday, according to the Associated Press. The Helen Woodward Animal Center, a local no-kill shelter, took in the animals with the support of Southwest Airlines, SeaWorld and BP.

After the pets are spayed, neutered and vaccinated, they'll be ready for adoption soon. You can find out more about the animals on the shelter's website.
