Running to help Hurricane Dogs with Team ASPCA
On November 4-5, 2017, I will be participating in the 2017 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend as a member of Team ASPCA, a national fundraising and endurance training program.
As part of our ongoing efforts to help animals impacted by Hurricane Irma, the ASPCA has delivered critical pet supplies to dozens of shelters and resource centers in communities affected by the storm throughout Florida. So far, approximately 11,500 cats and dogs have been assisted through the distribution of pet food, bedding, medical supplies, crates and other resources for shelters and pet owners in need. In addition to distributing supplies, we provided sheltering assistance for homeless animals at Lee County Domestic Animal Services, Miami-Dade Animal Services (MDAS) and the Florida Keys SPCA, and we relocated more than 1,200 unowned shelter animals out of impacted communities.
“The devastation caused by Hurricane Irma will have an ongoing impact on communities in Florida for months to come,” said Tim Rickey, Vice President of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. “The ASPCA is committed to providing support for shelters and pet owners by ensuring they have the critical supplies they need to care for animals affected by the storm.”
About the ASPCA: Fighting for animals is a 24/7 job, but your commitment makes it possible for our life-saving programs to create happy endings for those innocent lives touched by cruelty. Every single day of the year, we are rescuing animals from neglect and suffering. With your support, we are able to rescue animals from cruelty, work to end animal homelessness and provide medical care for countless pets in need. Please help us save even more animals and donate to this Team ASPCA campaign today. If you’re interested in joining the team, click here.
