Thirty million cats, dogs and horses were in the path of superstorm Sandy and local shelters have been flooded and lost their medicines and supplies. Our Red Star Rescue teams have been called into New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware to shelter, rescue, and distribute more than 100,000 pounds of emergency food, medicine and supplies to cold, frightened and hungry pets displaced by the disaster. We are working with our generous national sponsors including MARS Petcare US, makers of PEDIGREE® brand, WHISKAS® brand, and ROYAL CANIN®, Pfizer Animal Health, Rescue Bank, and Oil-Dri Corp., maker of Cat's Pride© cat litter, but we need help to reach even more animals. Please consider a donation today and save a life!
