Recovering from Hurricane Sandy

We are very fortunate that all our pups were safe and sound during the storm. While some of our volunteers are still waiting for power and cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy, we are all looking forward to getting back to “normal” again.

Please know that all of our pups are available for adoption and we can schedule and meet. Please take a look on our website.

There were many shelters that were hit by Sandy and are in desperate need of supplies and fosters for their dogs. Here are just a few in NJ that could use help:

  • Humane Society of Atlantic County – This shelter was flooded and estimates a loss of about $100,000. Click here to make a cash donation. You can also drop off heavy-duty trash bags, paper towels, copy paper, bleach, laundry detergent/fabric softener and Home Depot or Lowes gift cards at JC Motorsports, located at 831 W. White Horse Pike (Route 30) in Galloway, N.J. (map).
  • Humane Society of Ocean City – Although this shelter sustained minor damages, it was able to reopen on Friday. You can bring the following needed supplies to 1 Shelter Road in Ocean City (map): laundry soap, bleach, canned cat foot, 33-gallon trash bags and towels. To make a cash donation, click here.
  • Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter – This facility is still without power and heat. To make a donation, click here.
  • Woodbridge Animal Shelter (WAS) – The first floor of the shelter was flooded. You can make a cash donation by clicking here, and check its Amazon Wish List to donate supplies needed.

There is additional information on shelters in New York and Maryland as well that are in need of assistance on I Love Dogs website.

Whatever you can do to help, will be greatly appreciated.
