I agree with Naomi, too. Not for nothing in the world would I let my pets behind in a disaster! The fear for them would kill me anyhow, so I'd prefer to die with them together

Hurricane Sandy leaves thousands of pets in need (PHOTO


In the midst of Hurricane Sandy hundreds of people and their pets were displaced from their homes, with some of the tragic stories still unfolding.

For many people who had been facing the approaching disaster saving their pet has become a task not less vital than saving their own lives. Thousands of superstorm victims were searching for any opportunity not to part with their pets – be it a hotel accepting people with animals, a shelter or staying with a relative or a friend.

Some 15 million dogs, 14 million cats and 1.5 million horses were in Hurricane Sandy's path, according to the American Humane Association.

Subject: Sandy/pets/victims

Dear Sir, dear Madam,

Just want to inform you about the fact that within the Sandy disaster the most likely victims, pets, cats especially, are being killed in the NY CACC 'shelter' without giving the animals a chance to be picked up by their owners who are homeless at the moment!

The ASPCA continues to show the video with pitiful animals on TV, as they appeal for your money...while there is no ASPCA rescue shelter for these animal victims!!!
So this money is not used to help animals, but rather to pay fat salaries to people like Ed Sayres.

Risa Weinstock the interim acting director of NYC/AC is another POS who does not care at all about the animals! The killing goes on no matter what!!!

NY CACC is killing the cats without even posting them!

My question is: please let people know NOT to take their animals to NY CACC, they will be killed!!

Link to finding FREE vet care in Hurricane Sandy affected areas

Scott Stringer, borough president, has expressed outrage over AC&C. He might run for mayor in 2013...
From Michele C. Hollow:
Here is the real link to finding FREE vet care in Hurricane Sandy affected areas:

And yes, ACC in NYC is a terrible place. They are looking for a new director, but as long as the Dept. of Health runs it, it will have a "yes" person in place. It is quite sad. The only solution I see is to elect a new mayor in 2013 who cares about the shelter pets. I think that person is Scott Stringer.

Entwined with the human costs of the storm, which killed more than 100 people and caused billions of dollars in damage, is another significant toll - that of the cherished pets that died or were left behind as families fled for their lives

the people who 'fled for their lives' left their pets to die. i feel no compassion for the people, i just pray the animals are found and are adopted by people who truly love their animals, and would never abandon them.

I couldn't agree with you more Naomi and I pray for these poor animals every day. I don't care what disasters I have to endure, there is just no hope in hell that I am going to leave my animals behind to fend for themselves. I would just rather stay with them and die with them.

Lab Mice Killed By Hurricane
Hurricane Sandy caused much devastation on the east coast to people, pets, homes, and businesses. But there is another set of victims who haven't gotten much coverage. Sadly, thousands of mice who were genetically engineered for use in research drowned in the basement laboratory of New York University's Smilow Research Building.

Donít Euthanize Displaced Pets From Hurricane Sandy Share This: Recent Petitions Comment
5 years ago

An animal shelter in Brooklyn, New York opened in November 2012, and originally housed over 280 pets from devastated areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. The shelter was planning to close in December, but the remaining high volume of displaced pets prompted the ASPCA to stay open. Unfortunately, their next closing deadline is looming and there are still a high number of unclaimed pets.
