The torrential rains that have plagued the South of late are horrific.
Many people have lost all of their belongings and I can’t even imagine how devastating this is.
We are fortunate up North to have been spared much of this exhausting weather and several of us are trying to help where all of us can. Donation places are accepting help, church groups are going to help with scrub up efforts, and power companies are sending extra manpower to restore utilities. One area that several people don’t think of is the amount of pets that are displaced while I was in these events. Shelters in those areas are under water too and the creatures need to be evacuated too. Many creatures are lost, abandoned, or destructiond too so our creature shelters are trying to help by rehoming several of the ones from that area. Our local SPCA has brought in trailers to set up temporary kennels and housing. They even have extra medical facilities to treat any wounded pets that arrive. With all of the additional space there is a serious need for funding. Each trailer must be temperature controlled and the air needs to be filtered constantly too. They have set up donation site that are particularally for purchasing and maintaining the HVAC units that will be installed in each space. I decided to donate to that because I think that if our little fur baby was displaced I would want them to be in a scrub comfortable space to help ease the anxiety of their fears. I system on volunteering as well if I can find the time. Just standing with these creatures and allowing them some comfort would mean a superb deal to them.
