Dozens of pets escaping the wrath of Hurricane Florence recently arrived safe in Nashville.

The Big Fluffy Dog Rescue Group picked up 21 dogs and 15 cats from a shelter in St. Pawley's Island, South Carolina this week.

Now, their already-full kennel is even more packed, but rescuers felt they had no choice but to help.

"They're in harm's way -- the island, and the actual shelter is just feet from the shoreline [and] may not even be there after the hurricane comes through," explained Michelle Cadwell with Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. "So if no one can go down there, those animals don't stand a chance in surviving."
