On October 23, 2020, our Mobile Rescue Unit pulled into our Port Washington, N.Y. campus from its third lifesaving mission to the hurricane-devastated areas in Louisiana and Texas. It was carrying 37 puppies and dogs and 18 cats and kittens that would have been euthanized as the shelters there are overflowing with animals due to the non-stop storms.
This rescue was organized with Paws4Life, located in Shreveport, Louisiana, who’s been very active pulling dogs and cats from local shelters that were affected by both Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Most of the dogs were placed into foster care homes until the arrival of our Mobile Rescue Unit to transport them to New York. Some animals also came from the Bossier City Animal Control in Louisiana. Our Rescue Team rendezvoused with Paws4Life in Knoxville, Tennessee, to transfer the animals and hit the road again for the return trip.
Won’t you help us help them? Donate today to take animals out of harm’s way and give them a chance for the happy lives they deserve.
“Paws4Life is an amazing rescue partner. The chance to get on this transport was the last hope for some of these animals,” said Karla Agostinello, Rescue Manager for North Shore Animal League America. “We are already working with Paws4life on our next rescue and many more animals will make their way to our Port Washington, New York campus. Once they’re ready for adoption, we will find each of them their new loving home.”
