There were many animals who were trapped in the evacuation zones as Sandy roared ashore, and thanks to the tireless efforts of the ASPCA, PETA and the Humane Society, as well as many other individual volunteers, most of them were rescued and continue to be reunited with their owners.

It is so important for pet owners to have a plan for their pets when they have to evacuate during any type of emergency. Pets should be taken with you, since many shelters now will accept them. Also, there are many more pet friendly hotels that will accept Fido or Fifi. Another possibility is that if you can, you should bring your pet to a kennel that can board them, or bring them to a friend’s home who is outside of the evacuation zone. Our pets are a very important part of our families; they need to be safe from harm’s way as we need to be.
