Shelters, ASPCA Partner to Help Hurricane Florence Victims
The ASPCA is always grateful for the work of shelters and rescues around the country, and never more so than when partnering to aid victims of disasters.
At the request of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, the ASPCA deployed responders in early September following Hurricane Florence and assisted approximately 600 animals through field search-and-rescue, emergency sheltering, the distribution of critical pet supplies, and relocating homeless animals to shelters and rescue groups to be made available for adoption.
Hurricane Florence devastated the Carolinas and displaced more than a million people and their pets. The Robeson County Animal Shelter, where the ASPCA provided sheltering assistance, reunited more than 150 displaced pets with their owners.
In addition, these groups supported the ASPCA’s disaster response efforts by deploying responders, accepting homeless animals to make available for adoption, or providing critical supplies:
