PetRelocation.com is a proud supporter of the pet friendly UAN - United Animal Nations - and all they do for our friends in need. We just received the following email from them and encourage all our readers to help where they can:
Even though the wind and torrential rain have receded from Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Gustav, United Animal Nations (UAN) and its Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers continue to care for animals who were in the path of the storm.
At this very moment, two more teams of EARS volunteers are being deployed to Shreveport and Alexandria, Louisiana, where they will care for evacuated pets at temporary emergency shelters until they can go home with their families.
We urgently need you to support UAN’s Disaster Relief Fund so we can continue to care for animals displaced by Gustav ... and be prepared for other natural disasters that put animals at risk.
Last weekend, EARS volunteers helped state and local officials stage a massive pre-evacuation effort that helped move thousands of New Orleans residents and their pets out of harm’s way, proving that disaster preparedness is not only successful, its essential.
WeҒre thrilled that the successful pre-evacuation plan for Hurricane Gustav saved countless animal and human lives. But Hurricane Ike is now churning toward the eastern seaboard, and Hurricane Hanna is threatening to make landfall later this week. Its obvious that our work isnҒt done.
Your donation to our Disaster Relief Fund will ensure that UAN is prepared to bring animals out of crisis and into care when natural disasters threaten them.
Thank you for supporting UAN and for caring about a disasters most innocent and defenseless victims Җ the animals.
