The Sunshine State, Florida, has been struggling to keep its animal shelters afloat since Hurricane Matthew devastated the state and left a gaping hole in the nation’s food supply.
But it’s not as if animals are all that hungry right now.
In the wake of the devastating hurricane, the state is now on the cusp of opening up to the public to adopt or adopt-out.
The new shelter, Sunshine Animal Shelter, opened on Thursday and will have a shelter staff of 30 people.
In addition to the 30-person staff, there will also be an expanded dog adoption program, as well as an expanded cat adoption program.
Sunshine Animal Rescue is also looking for volunteer staff.
The Sunshine Animal Society says its volunteers will work to keep animals in their homes and away from other people.
The society says its animal volunteers will help with adoptions and rescue surgeries, as they work in tandem with a local shelter.
Sunshine shelters are located in Orlando, Melbourne, Gainesville, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.
The shelter in Orlando is expected to open in late February.
In Melbourne, the shelter will open this week.
In Miami, the first shelter in the Sunshine state will open next week.
The first shelter will be opened in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the fall of 2017.
In Orlando, Sunshine shelters will open in December and open in 2018.
In Gainesville in 2018, Sunshine animals will be euthanised and the shelters will close in the summer of 2020.
Animal welfare activists have slammed the Sunshine shelters, saying they are not being humane and that they have not done enough to help animals in need.
Animals in Florida have been put down in order to help fund the state’s disaster relief.
The state is currently trying to pay for a shelter in Gainesville for its homeless animals.
There has been a massive influx of homeless people in the state, and in Florida, there are more than 50 shelters.
According to the Florida Department of Health, Florida’s homeless population has reached more than 11,700 people since the hurricane struck.
