ASPCA Needs Your Help To Help Our Furry and Feathered Friends

As someone who cares about animals, you’ve committed to protecting pets in need and the ASPCA is there to make it happen, 365 days a year. dog Sadly, this year will be worse than most. With some pet owners having to make tough decisions, pet food sales and veterinary visits have decreased in the last few months. The cruel truth is that that more pets are being dumped, abandoned and turned out onto the street while others are suffering hunger, neglect and abuse. 

Your support helps the ASPCA rescue these pets in their time of crisis, even during the coldest months of the year. Your gift of $25 or more can mean the difference between life and death for pets with nowhere else to turn.

Please help us with as generous a gift as you can afford. Even a small amount can go a long way for a pet in need.

Pets not left behind in New Orleans evacuation

NEW ORLEANS – Authorities evacuating residents from New Orleans ahead of Hurricane Gustav are making amends with four-legged friends after thousands of pets perished in Hurricane Katrina three years ago.

Animal welfare groups tried to make sure that evacuees had their pets with them, while shelters away from the Gulf Coast accommodated animals this time around.

Many owners stayed in the city during the catastrophic 2005 hurricane because they could not take their pets to shelters and could not bear to leave without them This city has been hit so badly, they’ve lost so much, and the last thing they have to hold on to is their animal,” said Laura Bergerol, a volunteer with Animal Rescue New Orleans.

The group stacked up boxes for residents who planned to carry their small pets with them as part of an evacuation on buses and trains through the Union Passenger terminal.

Pet owners stood in line to register their furry friends. Then they were given a machine readable band to tag on to their pet, in case they became separated.

Among the horrors of Katrina three years ago were dead dogs bobbing in the drowned streets of the city, 80 percent of which was flooded.
