More than a dozen dogs and cats rescued from the Harvey-battered Texas arrived at a northern New Jersey animal shelter early Monday, and shelter personnel say another 60 are expected to come in within the next week.
Pet ResQ, Inc. on Railroad Avenue in Tenafly says it received seven dogs, five kittens and one Siamese cat around 3 a.m. Monday, as residents in Southeast Texas braced for more, historic rain and devastating floods.
The animals were saved from a flooded shelter.
The shelter says it expects another 25 animals to come in Thursday and 35 more over the weekend. Anyone interested in adopting the animals is advised to email the shelter at email@example.com.

Other shelters across the tri-state area are readying for an influx of adoptable pets as well.
One hundred animals moved from Houston-area shelters before the storm are expected to arrive at New Jersey's Morristown Airport on the first flight out of San Antonio Tuesday morning. The animals will be taken to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison.
