(ANIMAL RESCUE) NEW YORK — Since its opening over the weekend, dozens of victims of Hurricane Sandy are leaving their pets behind at a 20,000-square-foot emergency boarding center in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn. The shelter, run a team of disaster specialists from the ASPCA, housed 137 animals by Sunday evening and expects to house a few hundred by the end of the week. The center is able to accommodate up to 700 animals at no cost for up to 30 days until their displaced families are able to reclaim them. Thanks to your generous donations to the Global Animal Foundation, the ASPCA is able to provide food, shelter, and medical care to hundreds of animals in need.
