After the devastation the East Coast faced with Hurricane Sandy, sometimes we forget all of the critters whose homes were also destroyed by the deadly storm.
After the storm cleared the area, The Humane Society of the United States sent rescue teams into the most devastated counties to conduct search and rescue for stranded pets. The HSUS rescued more than 250 animals displaced by the hurricane and is housing or fostering more than 500 additional pets for families who are without a residence and need some time to get their homes and lives back together before having to care for their pets again.
The HSUS is currently working with other animal organizations in the area and housing hundreds of animals in emergency shelters. The hope of the HSUS is to reunite each pet with its owner.
