While people around the world have been doing all that they can to help animals
from the Gulf of Mexico, dogs and cats in the area are still in jeopardy.
According to NJ.com
, almost 100 canines were recently transported from Louisiana to Madison, New Jersey. The pups will be placed in animal shelters across the Garden State, where they hopefully will find a loving home.
"This is the second time in the past month that The Humane Society of the United States has transported dogs from overwhelmed Louisiana shelters to rescue groups in the Northeast," Inga Fricke, director of Sheltering Initiatives for the organization, told the news outlet.
Fricke also stressed that these animals would make a wonderful addition to any family.
"These dogs are all highly adoptable and just need a second chance to find forever homes," she told the news source.
People who want to contribute to pets affected by the Gulf disaster can visit The Animal Rescue Site
to donate money. All of the proceeds are given to the Petfinder.com Foundation
, which helps support animal welfare groups and is working to aid shelters directly impacted by the oil spill.
