This three-legged dog from Houston needs a new home in Atlanta

A truckload of pets from Houston arrived overnight at the Atlanta Humane Society as part of a partnership effort, and the furry friends are ready to come run your household. The animals, nearly 100 in all, were transported from the Houston SPCA.

They'd been in the shelter ahead of Hurricane Harvey, so Atlanta rescuers are working to clear space in that shelter by bringing them here.

The sweet cats and dogs ready to be adopted include this cute little guy (or gal? we're not actually sure).

See the web site for details .
