I got this in an email today. I urge anyone that can possibly help to please do so!
By now, you probably have seen on the news that pet owners had to leave their dogs behind or the dogs have been separated from their owners. Our model, Pressley and one of her friends have decided to do something for these unfortunate dogs.
In conjuction with the ASPCA, Pressley will have a dog rescue all set up. She will be looking for homes or foster homes for these dogs that will be flown to our area. I have already put my order in for another Basset Hound that may need a home. :)
If you or someone you know would be interested in adopting or fostering one of the many dogs that Pressley will bring up to NYC, please contact her. She can be reached via email at: email@example.com

People are being forced to leave pets that are considered members of the family. I saw footage of one old man being rescued from a roof who was literally being pried from his dog, despite his screams. Some are even being threatened with arrest if they refuse to leave the animals behind. That is absolutely heartwrenching.
If you cannot take in a homeless animal, please make a donation, no matter how small, to one of the many organizations who are trying to help.
Here are just a few:
Humane Society Disaster Relief Fund
Petfinder Disaster Relief
United Animal Nations
