GREEN BAY, Wis. -

Twenty-five four-legged companions left homeless by the devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., have arrived at a Green Bay animal shelter and are ready for adoption.

It was a 16-hour trip for the dogs, mostly puppies, from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society to the Bay Area Humane Society. Dozens of displaced animals poured into the Oklahoma shelter after the tornado. Other shelters, including Bay Area, offered to take some of the animals that were at the Oklahoma shelter before the tornado hit.

Central Oklahoma shelter president Christy Counts said her humane society wouldn't have been able to handle the tornado animals if that extra space wasn't created.

The Bay Area Humane Society's Karen DeBaker told WLUK-TV the additional puppies will help increase foot traffic and overall adoptions.
