NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
Naturally, the big news everywhere right now is the
tragedy of Hurricane Sandy in the northeast of the U.S.
Especially hard hit were New York City and much of New
Animal shelters were devastated, too, as well as some
of the petfood companies many of us may rely on for our
pets' needs. We were lucky here in Nebraska as our
regular monthly order was not disrupted! However,
many others were not so lucky. Here is how you can
help feed the animals:
1. PetFlow.com -
While Pet Flow is okay and back in business, there are
many shelters up and down the East Coast that were
ravaged by this hurricane. They don't know of any
specific shelter that needs more help than another,
but if you have the means, they will waive all shipping
fees on products being sent to pet shelters or any pet
parents that are in need of pet food. All you need to
do is use the code SHELTER when you check out.
2. Wag.com -
The area around Jersey City office of Wag.com was hit especially
hard by the storm, putting local shelters in extreme
hardship. They are preparing an emergency shipment of pet
food and litter for immediate delivery to shelters in the
community — enough supplies to feed and nourish several
hundred dogs and cats while the shelters work to restore
Over the next 30 days, for every order placed on Wag with
the promotion code WAGDONATE, they will donate a bowl of
food to Best Friends Animal Society and its network of
affiliated animal shelters.

Help Feed Shelter Animals
Don't forget to visit these sites as often as you can and
click on the shelter-feed links. There is no cost to you
to do this, but it can only be done once per day.
(Answer a trivia question...
even a wrong answer gives a donation.)

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED
How to help animals:
Always remember to check with your local shelter
to see what they need. Your donation will go directly
to the animals, in sharp contrast to some of the large
national groups, whose donation income goes toward
large administrative salaries and other expenses, not
necessarily for animals. That said, there is one large
sanctuary I do endorse: http://www.deltarescue.org.
Panthers in Peril: Only 100 - 160 remain in the wild.
