ANIMAL FLOOD VICTIMS IN NEED

Once again, Mother Nature has unleased her raging fury, this time on the Midwestern part of the United States. Numerous cities and towns have suffered irreparable damage, and some, like Cedar Rapids, Iowa, are virtually underwater.

Just as with the recent earthquake in China and the cyclone in Myanmar, and putting people aside for just a moment, thousands of animals are in dire need of assistance. Needless to say, disasters of this magnitude put a huge drain on the resources of animal rescue organizations, so if you can afford it (and I know things are tough economically these days), you might want to consider a donation to the organization of your choice. Links to several excellent animal rescue organizations may be found on the "links" page of my website.

And one last thing... if there are any humans out there who STILL think global warming is a hoax or a non-issue, please contact me immediately. I have some acreage on the moon I'd like to sell you!

It hurts my heart to think of any animal suffering or in need.

It is so sad to think of all the animals who are in need when natural disaster of any kind strikes.

Thank you for that info. Yes it is hard to believe people still think global warming is a liberal fantasy.

My mom's best friend lives in Cedar Rapids - her family and animals are all safe, though her basement flooded.

Thank you for posting this.

I always cringe when a disaster pops up because I know a lot of animals will be abandoned when their owners leave. I would never think of leaving our 9 cats and bunny behind. When a hurricane came through here a couple of years ago we lost power for a week. It was so hot we took all of the furkids, the bird, and the hermit crab up to a Jacksonville hotel that had electricity. I wish I had taken photos of that exodus. It looked like Noah's Ark!

Unfortunately, you'd sell a lot of real estate on the moon.

There are lots of organizations that help animals in need...let's hope they're all staffed and can rescue them all.

Escuchaste de los animales de Volcan de Chaiten en Chile,ellos quedaron en la isla,solo evacuaron a las personas.
