The ASPCA is urging those affected by Sandy to pick up their pets still left at the emergency pet boarding facility in Brooklyn, New York.
As reported by the ASPCA to ABC, CBS and other media outlets, some 280 animals have been cared for at the facility since the storm hit. About half of them still remain at the shelter and are waiting to be claimed.
In a CBS interview, Tim Rickey, senior director of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response reported, “We are still caring for the displaced pets at our emergency boarding facility, but we’re also planning the next step, which is to find homes for unclaimed animals as we start to demobilize our operation.”
Those with missing pets are asked to come to the ASPCA emergency boarding facility as soon as possible.
The Emergency Boarding Facility is located at 1508 Herkimer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11233. Hours are 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. seven days a week.
The Sandy pet hotline is 347-537-9935. You can search the pets currently housed at the facility by clicking here.
