Helping Animals Affected by Sandy

I am sad that many people and animals are in need after Hurricane Sandy. But I am heartened to know there are many people available to help!

I’m glad we’re no longer left behind!


Shelters were available for animals, and there are many folks out there now helping people care for their pets in the storm’s aftermath.

Want to help those organizations who are helping us animals?  Great! Here’s just some of the groups that need your money:

Text ANIMALS to 20222 to donate $10 to Humane Society Disaster Relief Fund or text PREVENT to 25383 to donate $10 to help the ASPCA’s animal rescue efforts.  You can also donate through their websites.

American Humane Association has its Rescue Rig in operation. You can donate to support their efforts through their website.

PetSmart Charities is assisting relief efforts. You can donate when you make an in-store purchase or through their website.

Best Friends Animal Society has disaster relief workers assisting locals in New Jersey. You can donate to their disaster relief team here.

The Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City NJ is still without power. The animals are safe, but they do need supplies and volunteers. Check out their Facebook page  for more info.

Thank you for caring. Thank you for helping!

  13. We think a lot of lessons were learned from Katrina. We have asked Mom to paw some green papers to help the furries in need too. So much sadness there now, a little bit of help from everyone will do a lot of good.

  15. A great post !

  16. Hey Rumpy, Jet here. Hi Miss Jen.

    We clicked over to Best Friends and I authorized Mom to donate what she would have spent on me for my “gotcha day” last week. Mom has volunteered at Best Friends (about 7 years ago) and believes they “walk the talk”.

    Mom also spoke about us fur family members in regards to Sandy on her blogtalk radio segment this morning, as did the host and her guest, Kate Hale. 🙂

    Thank you for keeping the focus on animals in need. 🙂

  18. We’re going to be checking out these charities out! Also- a pal in NJ gave us these two shelters names directly. She is gathering things for donating locally. Both were flooded & lost everything! Jersey Shore Animal Shelter: https://jerseyshoreanimalcenter.org/generaldonation.aspx

    Woodbridge Animal Center: http://bit.ly/Tp2ZNs

    Hope that helps!
