Animal rescue groups in New Jersey are working together to give out pet food and supplies to pet owners left struggling after Superstorm Sandy.
St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, Monmouth County SPCA, Animal Welfare Association, and The Humane Society of United States (HSUS) established four distribution sites (listed below) for individuals, families, or rescue groups to pick up pet food and supplies, including bowls, litter, leashes, pet beds, and comfort items.
"Thousands of pet owners who were affected by Hurricane Sandy will be struggling to rebuild their homes and replace their belongings, so The Humane Society of the United States and our partners are happy to alleviate some stress by providing pet food and supplies," said Kathleen Schatzmann, New Jersey state director for The HSUS. "Our pets are a part of our families, so it’s our top priority to give pet owners resources to keep their animals safe and healthy."
PetSmart Charities, PetCo Foundation, TJ Maxx, Purina, and other members of the community donated the food to be distributed through the sites.
Those interested in picking up food and supplies should call the distribution site first, to check both times open and to see what supplies are available at that site.
