Disaster Relief for Pets in Hurricane Sandy

Like many of you around the world, Baseball, Zooey, and Mom were glued to the tv yesterday, watching Hurricane Sandy as it caused extreme devastation to the East Coast of the United States.

It’s going to take the effort of thousands to return these cities and towns into safe places to live for both people and animals.

Thanks to the efforts of the ASPCA, many animals are safe and getting help.  But there are still many more in need out there – and they can’t do it alone.

If you would like to support the ASPCA and their efforts to rescue the animals of Hurricane Sandy, please visit their site at aspca.org or donate now.

Animals across the coast thank you!

We also want to take a moment to thank the folks at Alley Cat Allies, who have worked diligently to prepare the Boardwalk Cats in Atlantic City for the storm.

Thanks to their efforts, on a preliminary walk of Boardwalk today cats were discovered to be returning to their colonies safe and unharmed.  However, recovery has only just begun, and several areas of the Boardwalk are still flooded, or have been torn away.

If you’re interested in helping the folks at Alley Cat Allies with the Atlantic City situation, please e-mail them at info@alleycat.org.

Update:  If you are on the east coast, please check out this site, and help make sure that all lost pets find their way home.  For those outside the path of Sandy, shelters are filling up quickly and foster parents are needed!  If you’re able to, visit Petfinder.com’s list of shelters by state to contact them for regarding fostering or donating much needed items.
