On November 5th, GreaterGood.org sent the first grants for two New Jersey shelters struggling with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy: $10,000 each for the Woodbridge Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of Atlantic County which have been hard hit by the flooding.
"We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you are doing for us," wrote Heather Campione, Woodbridge Animal Shelter Supervisor. "The water surge filled our basement and came five feet into our main floor." Although able to move the animals out of harm's way, the shelter lost most of their supplies, medicines, and food. "Because of your kindness, we will be back on all four paws very shortly," added Campione.
Danielle Tustin sent the following video of conditions at the Humane Society of Atlantic County on the day of the storm, as the water breached the sandbags and crept up to the front door:
"Keep in mind, this was twelve hours before the storm actually arrived," she added.
These grants were made possible by The Animal Rescue Site's Gifts That Give More [tm] program. Additional grants for rescue work and rebuilding will be announced shortly.
