Sunday Catinee: Helping Hurricane Sandy’s Animal Victims

When a disaster happens, my human is always torn between donating to the big organizations or sending money directly to local groups.

Local groups, whose shelters may have been damaged, need assistance to help displaced rescue pets and to rebuild, while the big organizations are on the ground, helping care for pets who had to be left behind and reuniting them with their owners. The below video shows a couple of rescues performed by an animal rescue team from the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Pull out your handkerchiefs for this one:

Thousands of humans and animals are still suffering from the aftereffects of Sandy, so however you choose, please give. In fact, if you want to mention a group you know of that needs help, please tell us about them in the comments and link to them below. Thanks!
