Los Angeles, CA: It’s been weeks since the devastation caused by Hurricanes’ Harvey, Irma and Maria and many are still suffering from the horrific aftermath, among the most vulnerable are those on four legs.
Many displaced animals have been shipped around the United States to shelters ready to find them new homes, but it’s not without struggle. Many shelters, though eager to help, are in desperate need of basic supplies.
New Jersey’s St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center saw a significant influx of shelter animals coming to them from Texas and Puerto Rico. As they continue to welcome hundreds of animals on a weekly basis, the support of their local volunteers has been an invaluable service according to their blog.
HCT’s East Coast office has also stepped in to help care for their furry neighbors.
“[Our] office is bursting with animal lovers and many here already support the efforts of St. Hubert’s through charity 5k runs and collecting supplies. As we watched reports of animals flooding into our area, we naturally wanted to help,” said HR Director Carrie Crater.
HCT employees ran a week-long collection drive at the East Coast office and amassed an impressive amount of food and supplies. These donations were then delivered to St. Hubert’s in support of their endless work.
“We continue to be grateful for the support and generosity of our members and community,” –St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.
