Brooklyn Shelter Opens for Pets Whose Owners Lost Their Homes During Hurricane Sandy

This past weekend, a $500,000 grant from celebrity chef
Rachael Ray made it possible for the American Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals to open a shelter for pets displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

The shelter opened on Saturday in a 20,000
square-foot vacant warehouse in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. The
shelter will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. If there are any pet owners who are interested in bringing their pets to this shelter, please call the Hurricane Sandy Pet Hotline at (347)573-1561. Also, pet owners will need a government issued photo ID and proof of address. It is also requested that your pets be wearing their identification tags and be in a carrier or crate. It is also asked that pet owners bring vaccination records and any medications your pet may need. 

There are many people and groups coming together at this
difficult time to help pet owners who have lost their homes and have no one to
take care of their animals.
