Smithtown based Guardians of Rescue, a non-profit organization established to protect and aid animals, is seeking assistance and donations to help those animals affected by Hurricane Florence.
The group has been working non-stop in North Carolina and surrounding areas to help rescue many animals affected by the storm.
“We’ve helped rescue animals in many hurricanes, but this one has to be one of the worst hurricanes to get access to the animals in need,” said Robert Misseri, president of Guardians of Rescue. “So many animals were left behind. We are getting calls about dogs left in kennels in backyards that are completely flooded, cats on rooftops, and horses in flooded fields, etc. What we are seeing out here is nothing short of heartbreaking.”
The organization is seeking donations, volunteers, pet food and medicine. To donate, please visit https://guardiansofrescue.networkforgood.com/projects/58524-disaster-respon%20se-hurricane-florence.
