WASHINGTON, DC -- The Washington Animal Rescue League, in partnership with the ASPCA, on Monday welcomed dozens of dogs and cats left homeless by Hurricane Sandy. The pets traveled from temporary shelters in New York City, and will be placed for adoption once they've been evaluated by the league's medical and behavioral staff. For information on how to visit and adopt some of these hurricane victims, or other adoptable pets at the league's shelter, visit www.warl.org.
All of the animals were either abandoned during the storm, surrendered by their owners due to the effects of the storm or were stray animals. Many are already being cared for by several members of the Washington Animal Rescue League staff who have been on site in New York this week at the request of the ASPCA.
