URGENT – HOW YOU CAN HELP OUR ANIMALS WHO ARE AFFECTED BY HURRICANE SANDY

December 10th, 2012 No Comments

Animal Aid USA is facilitating relief efforts for those shelters affected by Hurricane Sandy in three central locations: Bergen County, Atlantic County and Staten Island.  We have been informed that the shelters in the tri-state areas need more help now than ever.  Dogs and cats have been brought in drenched in kerosene and covered in filth from swimming in polluted waters.  They are scared, disorientated, cold, and hungry and need our help.  Anything you can do to assist us in our efforts would be greatly appreciated.  Below is the information you need to help us make a difference.

Animal Aid USA along with the American Humane Association (AHA) is joining forces with the Bergen County Animal Shelter. This shelter is acting as a “Supply Hub” for the surrounding NJ shelters as well as shelters in the five boroughs of New York.  Bergen County is requesting pet food, treats, toys, leashes, collars, blankets, towels, pet beds, monetary donations and cat litter.  Additionally, they need volunteers to drive supplies to surrounding shelters in NJ, NYC and Staten Island. If you can transport supplies please call 201-229-4600.
