American Humane, along with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), has assembled search-and-rescue teams in Baton Rouge to help animals affected by Hurricane Gustav.
In the tragic event that any animals were trapped, injured or abandoned in the storm, their highly trained rescuers act fast to save them.
In addition, American Humane is in Shreveport, La., sheltering more than 1000 animals that evacuated with their families. They deployed to Louisiana last Friday to help care for pets when residents left coastal areas ahead of the storm.
As part of a team composed of IFAW, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Noah’s Wish and the Humane Society of the United States, they have been responsible for setting up and operating a successful “mega shelter” where humans and their pets can be safely sheltered separately but in the same location.
Thanks to donors like you who have already contributed, all of the animals they’ve received at the shelter have been safely and comfortably accommodated.
