English: Houston, Texas, October 1, 2008 — Hurricane Ike orphaned thousands of pets. The Society for the Protection of Animals (SPCA) recruited volunteers to foster pets while they attempted to reunite them with owners. This dog, fostered for 10 days, is being adopted by a new family. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) works with government agencies and local volunteer groups to help care for pets, protected, and endangered species after a disaster.

Animal Rescue In Brooklyn

Washington Animal Rescue League

Thanks to my friend Linda for sending this link to me!  This is a wonderful story about one man’s attempt to care for rescued animals.  Watch the video HERE.

The home page of the Sean Casey Animal Rescue website cites this as their mission statement:

“The purpose of this endeavor is to aid unfortunate animals in the interest of a higher quality of life. We take in rescued, confiscated, neglected, injured, ill, unmanageable, or otherwise unwanted animals from private owners, zoos, shelters, and other public  organizations. These animals are cared for, and/or rehabilitated to the best of our ability and means  until which time they can be found healthy, happy homes – whether it be through adoption to qualified candidates or legally released into habitats suitable to the specific species in conjunction with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.”

What I really like is Sean’s approach to community involvement.  He states in the video that volunteers get school credit, community service credit, and they are learning job skills.  Making a difference in community for people and pets!

For more information on how to get involved,  to donate or volunteer, check out the rest of the website – Sean Casey Animal Rescue.

**Donations of newspaper, plastic bags, bleach, dish soap, paper towels, as well as old pillow cases and towels are very helpful.**
