After Hurricane Michael Animals Need Your Help
In the wake of Hurricane Michael, we all focus on the devastation, clean up and later recovery. Each year, during the hurricane season, pet owners are forced to leave their animals behind as they are unable to bring them to shelters or hotels. Dogs, cats, and other animals that are left behind, or were caught in the storm, are now being rescued and cared for by owners, neighbors, first responders and animal rescue groups. If you are interested in helping one of these fantastic organizations, please see the ones active now during Michael.
