***November 5 Hurricane Sandy Update:
Our Senior Rescue Technicians, Bill Tanguay and Mark Vogel, were very busy this past weekend rescuing animals and reuniting pets with their owners in New Jersey. Here are a few pictures from Mark and Bill’s first two days providing aid to animal victims of Hurricane Sandy in NJ: 1) Bill found some feline friends in need of rescue. 2) This elderly woman wouldn’t leave her home without her four cats, so Mark helped rescue them and made sure that the woman made it safely to a friend’s house. She and her cats are now being cared for by a friend. 3) This sweet kitty is going home to her family thanks to Bill. 4) This handsome guy was reunited with his family last night after his rescue earlier in the day.
Keep up the good work Bill and Mark and stay safe!
