UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Animal shelters and rescue organizations are reaching out to people and their pets who were displaced by superstorm Sandy.
The ASPCA has been providing vet care and pet supplies to the Rockaway and other hard hit areas.
The agency has also been rescuing animals throughout New York City and in parts of New Jersey that were left behind after their owners were forced to evacuate.
“Many people have lost their homes due to the storm and our goal is to alleviate some of the stress for pet owners by reuniting them with their animals,” Dr. Dick Green, director of Disaster Response for the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team, said in a statement. “Our priority is to help reunite as many pet owners as possible with their animals.”
