The torrential rains that have plagued the South of late are horrific.
Many people have lost all of their belongings & I can’t even imagine how devastating this is.
All of us are fortunate up North to have been spared much of this awful weather & many of us are trying to help where we can. Donation sites are accepting help, church groups are going to help with clean up efforts, & power companies are sending extra manpower to restore utilities. One section that many people don’t guess of is the amount of pets that are displaced during these events. Shelters in those areas are under water too & the critters need to be evacuated too. Many critters are lost, abandoned, or disfigured too so our critter shelters are trying to help by rehoming many of the 1s from that area. Our local SPCA has brought in trailers to set up temporary kennels & housing. They even have extra medical facilities to treat any wounded pets that arrive. With all of the additional space there is a drastic need for funding. Each trailer must be climate controlled & the air needs to be filtered officially too. They have set up donation place that are certainly for purchasing & maintaining the HVAC units that will be installed in each space. I decided to donate to that because I guess that if my little fur baby was displaced I would want them to be in a clean comfortable space to help ease the anxiety of their fears. I method on volunteering as well if I can find the time. Just sitting with these critters & allowing them some comfort would mean a great deal to them.
