The post said if a foster decides to evacuate, they are asked to take their new foster baby, and their own animals, with them. Once the storm passes and the fosters return, they can return the fosters to the shelter. 

Just one day later, the shelter posted that all of their dogs and cats were taken in by fosters and that they no longer need volunteers or transfers.
