A temporary Brooklyn pet shelter that opened to help care for animals displaced by Superstorm Sandy now wants owners to pick up their pets.

The ASPCA says the shelter, which housed more than 280 pets, will soon be closing its doors for good.

But only half of the owners have come to claim their pets.

The ASPCA wants owners to either go to the shelter or call their hotline.
