Reuniting Sandy Affected Families With Their Lost Pets

 

The New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Animal Planning Task Force, in an effort to reunite lost pets with their families, is urging those looking for lost pets to visit Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C’s) lost pets website, which includes images and descriptions of pets displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

“The ASPCA and other members of the Animal Planning Task Force are committed to helping reunite lost pets with their families,” said Tim Rickey, senior director of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. “We encourage individuals looking for lost pets to first visit AC&C’s website, and pet owners who have identified their animal should then call the Hurricane Sandy pet hotline.”
