ASPCA Opens Emergency Boarding Facility for Sandy Victims

Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 12:45pm

Many who lost their homes to Sandy have told us that they don’t want to give up their pets, but that they have nowhere to keep them. In response, today the ASPCA is opening a 20,000 square-foot emergency boarding facility for hundreds of animals displaced by Superstorm Sandy.

Located in central Brooklyn, this emergency boarding service is offered to those who need a place to house their animals until they can get back on their feet. It will also provide shelter for pets of those in evacuation centers, as well as pets whose families are already boarding them at Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn.

This effort is greatly aided by a $500,000 grant from generous animal lover Rachael Ray, as well as the donations of our compassionate supporters.

The ASPCA is operating this facility in collaboration with Animal Care & Control of NYC, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Veterinary Response Team, and the NYC Veterinary Emergency Response Team.

“We will continue our disaster relief work to help animal victims in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and hope that the emergency boarding facility will allow pet parents to focus on rebuilding their lives,” says ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Senior Director Tim Rickey. “It will take time, but we will work as a community, and the ASPCA will continue to provide ongoing assistance, personnel and resources as long as we’re needed.”

If you or someone you know was affected by Sandy and needs to temporarily house an animal at our facility, please see the details below.

Where: Pet parents in need can bring their animals directly to the emergency boarding facility, located at 1508 Herkimer Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11233, as early as today. Map

When: Starting today, the facility will be open seven days a week from 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., and will remain open for 30 days.

Standard of care: Veterinarians and specially trained staff will care for these pets and keep them healthy and happy, and pet parents will be welcome to visit.

What to bring: Pet parents are encouraged to bring the following, along with their pets, to the emergency boarding facility: one government-issued photo ID (i.e., driver’s license, passport, military ID, or non-driver ID) and a proof of address (i.e. utility bill, driver’s license). If possible, we encourage people to put ID tags on their pets and bring a carrier or crate, vaccination records, and medications or supplies for pets with special needs.

Please help us spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.
