Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

This was posted in the pet store where I work... So if you live in the South Jersey area, here's your chance to help our four-legged friends.

Hurricane Katrina Relief
Please Help The Pets

Thousands of animals are living in makeshift shelters separated from their owners who have died or were evacuated, leaving their pets behind. These animals will need housing and medical attention for several months. Your local veterinarians are going to the Gulf Coast to assist and relieve emergency volunteers in the disaster area.

Many of you want to help but don't know what you can do. Every one of us has some of the following items:

Collapsable kennels/crates
Leashes & collars
Food bowls
Pet toys
Sterile bandage tape and gauze
Rubbing alcohol
Bottled water (cases only please)
Large plastic garbage bags
Rolls of paper towels

The Rothman Animal Hospital will be collecting these items until Wednesday, September 28th. They will be hand delivered the first week in October, through Rural Area Veterinary Services (A division of the Humane Society of the United States)

Please pack similar items together and clearly label what is in each package.

Any questions, please contact 856-655-1787

Thank you in advance for your generosity
