Thank goodness for organizations like these. All along the NJ sea coast, under the boardwalks, there used to be hundreds of feral cat colonies. Alley Cat Allies worked for 2 years to get the colony in Atlantic City under control.
Now, all these animals are gone.

Noted. Such incredibly moving stories. Thank goodness for Kinship Circle and all of the organizations that have worked so tirelessly to help all of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. And the courage of the victims is amazing. I do grieve for those who were lost. Thank you for sharing this story Cher.

Screw the shelters, I'd find a large carboard box and stay inside it with my cats.

I would live in my car with my cats too if a shelter wouldn't let us in. We need to change attitudes towards animals. You'd think we would have learned our lesson when Katrina hit. So glad some of these people looked out for their animals. We need to get used to these disasters because of what man has done to this earth.

I'm happy to hear that there are so many people that really care about the welfare of others.

We ALL need to have a plan for evacuation with our animals or a plan to live without power for up to a week! Those of us who live in earthquake-prone areas have a closet or a big box of all we need for our should, too.

Rachel Ray gave 500k from her pet food sales for Sandy animals. And yes, our own plan is essential. Watched the Dust Bowl last night and it's a reminder (along with our current mega storms) that no one is exempt from a possible catastrophe. We do pull together in charity and aid.
