Help needed for animals affected by Hurricane Florence: What we can do
Donations and adoption are the best ways to save animals’ lives. Here are a few organizations facilitating both:
The Atlanta Humane Society: This organization worked ahead of the storm to get animals on the Carolina coast out of harm’s way and say they will take in as many animals as there is a need for. They are asking for donations through Facebook, which will be matched by a private donor until September 30.
Adopt! Shelters are encouraging people outside the storm-affected areas to foster or adopt. Some are waiving or discounting fees. Here are some local organizations: Greenville Humane Society, The Humane Society of Charlotte, Pender County Animal Shelter, and Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, Coastal Animal Rescue.
Because Animals has donated to to the Atlanta Humane Society in their efforts to help animals affected by the hurricane.
