Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Pets Displaced by Sandy Find Temporary Home

The ASPCA Emergency Boarding Facility has been up and running in Brooklyn since Saturday November 17! Our dedicated staff and volunteers are currently caring for about 150 animals and providing relief to Sandy victims who need temporary housing for their pets.

Check out photos of the operation in our Facebook album.

This week, we received pets at locations near the hardest hit areas, including the Rockaways and Coney Island on Monday and Tuesday and Staten Island and Red Hook later in the week. The facility has also welcomed pets who were being housed at evacuation centers or a Sean Casey Animal Rescue facility, as well as animals dropped off directly by their families.

Made possible in part thanks to a $500,000 grant from Rachael Ray, this free service was created in response to the many pet parents who asked for a place to board animals until they found new homes. With the help of volunteers from the ASPCA Adoption Center, Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals and elsewhere, we’re aiming to give hundreds of families a chance to rebuild their lives without having to say goodbye to their beloved furry family members.

If you or someone you know was affected by Sandy and would like to use our free boarding service, please read this post for details.

EWING — New Jersey pet owners are welcome along with their furry friends at the state’s hurricane evacuation shelters.

Gov. Chris Christie said the state is prepare to welcome cats and dogs to the emergency shelters of last resort meant for people.

"No one should be staying in their homes in an endangered area because they feel like they can’t bring their pets with them," Christie said.

But, he warned, pet owners should come with all the supplies needed to care for their pets.

"I can’t believe as governor I’m actually having to say this, bring the kitty litter box and you know the pooper-scooper and all the rest of that stuff," Christie said.

WOOF: Cats & Dogs (any pets) can get stressed when there is tension, stress &/or arguing between human household members (and will be worse in a shelter situation). So be kind to one another!!
