The Carteret County Humane Society’s shelter has been evacuated.

The shelter put out a request for help earlier Friday, saying its roof was in danger of collapsing, and it was also starting to flood.

The Cajun Navy confirmed the shelter was evacuated, and the animals were taken to a local animal rescue. 

The rescue is working to find where the animals will be taken next.
