UPDATE: Pets Arrive at Emergency Boarding Facility

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 - 2:30pm

The ASPCA Emergency Boarding Facility has been up and running in Brooklyn since Saturday November 17! Our dedicated staff and volunteers are currently caring for about 150 animals and providing relief to Sandy victims who need temporary housing for their pets. Check out photos of the operation in our Facebook album.

This week, we received pets at locations near the hardest hit areas, including the Rockaways and Coney Island on Monday and Tuesday and Staten Island and Red Hook later in the week. The facility has also welcomed pets who were being housed at evacuation centers or a Sean Casey Animal Rescue facility, as well as animals dropped off directly by their families.

Made possible in part thanks to a $500,000 grant from Rachael Ray, this free service was created in response to the many pet parents who asked for a place to board animals until they found new homes. With the help of volunteers from the ASPCA Adoption Center, Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals and elsewhere, we’re aiming to give hundreds of families a chance to rebuild their lives without having to say goodbye to their beloved furry family members.

Watch this blog for updates.

If you or someone you know was affected by Sandy and would like to use our free boarding service, please read this post for details.

I had the unique opportunity and luck to visit this shelter as part of a disaster team in support of the staff. I was amazed at the level of care, the organization, the wonderful and welcoming workers who clearly loved the traumatized furry friends. I couldnt resist a cuddle with a bunny:) thank you so much Rachel and Petsmart and all who have contributed. Every penny is so much appreciated and wisely used- i wish our "people hospitals" were like this!
