Sandy Relief: How You Can Help

Monday, November 19, 2012 - 2:30pm

Thank you for your compassion for animals affected by Sandy. As you know, thousands of families are still enduring the far-reaching effects of the storm, and the ASPCA is working around the clock to help. Here’s how you can pitch in for Sandy pets.

If you’d like to give to the ASPCA’s Disaster Relief Fund, you can do so here.

To learn about opportunities to volunteer your time or foster an animal, visit New York City’s Sandy relief page. You can also call the Sandy pet hotline at 347-573-1561.

For New Jersey residents who are willing to open their homes to pets in need, or those looking for temporary foster care, please visit Foster a Sandy Pet.

If you would like to volunteer with the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team during our Sandy relief efforts, please email [email protected] with your availability and any special skills or qualifications.

Flyers play a big role in helping us get out the word about services we’re offering. Right now the ASPCA is operating a temporary boarding facility for displaced pets. Download our flyer here [PDF] and put it up in areas affected by Sandy.

If you lost a pet during Sandy, please call 311 and see our flyer for shelter locations [PDF].
