"Tomorrow 100 dogs and cats are flying from Texas to OR and Washington, Saturday 200 dogs and cats will fly from Jefferson Parish Louisiana to Washington D.C., Monday 150 pets will fly who have been driven to Tulsa from Houston to Chicago - and on Tuesday 120 dogs and cats will fly from Louisiana to San Diego".

The Pet Leadership Council is proud to highlight dozens of pet companies rallying together to provide food, supplies and medicine to rescue organizations, evacuation facilities and pet owners. "We have been working to send supplies down as well as bring animals up to help lift the burden of the already weighted situation".

Once they arrive, they will be triaged by volunteer veterinarians, headed by Monmouth SPCA Medical Director, Dr. Nicole Feddersen. In the meantime, they need donations to buy kitty litter, bleach, kitten milk replacer, and food. The ASPCA's search-and-rescue, sheltering and relocation teams are working in other flooded communities in Texas and Louisiana to deploy relief resources.
