Headquarters: Hello EverybodyPosted by on August 30, 2008
This has been a very active time here at North Shore Animal League America. We just completed the rescue of over 120 dogs from a puppy mill in West Virginia. Now, we are preparing to embark on another mission of mercy. My name is Joanne Yohannan and I am the senior Vice President of Operations for the League. I have personally seen my share of large scale emergencies that have triggered our rescue efforts, but nothing compares to the devastation and level of rescue support that we implemented in connection with hurricane Katrina in 2005. Over 1600 animals were rescued within the first few weeks, and over the past three years that number of lives saved has grown to nearly 2400. Many of our supporters have generously opened their hearts and homes to these exceptional animals.
Now, on the eve of Hurricane Gustav, we are ready to assist in the hurricane zones to save even more animals lives. Please join me in wishing our rescue teams a safe journey.
Our rescue teams will keep you updated as will I as our rescue efforts continue.
I’ll be back in touch with you again soon,
