Huntsville -- Dozens of dogs from Alabama are finding a new home in Maine so an Alabama shelter can make room for other canines left homeless in the wake of last week's devastating storms that ripped across the South.

The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society in Lewiston, Maine is planning to take 50 dogs from the Shelby Humane Society in Columbiana, Ala. Shelter manager Zachary Black says the canines are expected to arrive Saturday after making the 20-hour drive from Alabama.

Once in Maine, the dogs will be put up for adoption. Black says they range from 2 months to 4 years and from 4 pounds to 80 pounds.

Black says he's glad to lend a hand so the Alabama dog shelter can make room for "tornado dogs."
