    According to WARL's Matt Williams, the shelter received eight dogs and five cats.

    While "some will turn around pretty quickly," Williams said, they will all go through medical and behavioral evaluation before being made available for adoption.

    WARL said the animals were all either abandoned by their owners, surrendered, or were strays.
