You all know how I feel about cats and dogs. I cannot imagine going through a disaster without my pets. When I came across BDRN, I joined, even though I’m not really what you’d call a “pet blogger”. Here is the most recent info I have received:
While World Vets organization’s mission is to focus on international veterinary aid and disaster response, they are monitoring the devastation on the East Coast very closely and are working with local rescue organizations to assess how best to provide resources to organizations in need. Blogger Disaster Response network members will be the first to know about World Vets initiatives. For more, please visit worldvets.org or facebook.com/worldvets.
With Hurricane Sandy and the pets who need help being such an immediate need we wanted to share a few articles and resources we gathered. Many of these links are updating as information changes so be sure to check back frequently:
