Keeping Pets Safe During Hurricane Sandy

AMERICAN HUMANE ASSOCIATION MOBILIZES ITS 82-FOOT RED STAR RESCUE RIG WITH SUPPORT FROM MARS PETCARE US TO SAVE ANIMALS FROM HURRICANE SANDY

Charity Offers Life-saving Tips to Help Keep Children and Pets Safe

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following storm tracking on their mobile command center within the 82-foot Rescue Rig that will serve as a base and housing for its specially trained staff and volunteers, American Humane Association is driving its famed Red Star™ Animal Emergency Services team into position to be ready with the support of MARS Petcare US to help animals that may need rescue or shelter from Hurricane Sandy.

American Humane Association's legendary Red Star Rescue teams, which have been part of every major disaster relief effort for the past century, from rescuing horses on the battlefields of World I Europe to the Great Ohio Flood of 1937 to Pearl Harbor, Hurricane Katrina, and 9/11, will arrive at its staging area in eastern Pennsylvania, in preparation for emergency rescue work throughout the region. The 82-foot truck and its convoy of chase vehicles carry rescue boats, a hoist, food and medical supplies, snap-together kennels for extending or creating animal shelters, food bowls and other items to keep animals safe and cared for. MARS Petcare US, makers of PEDIGREE® food for dogs and WHISKAS® food for cats, has provided a grant to help the emergency deployment and is providing emergency food and supplies.  Red Star teams have saved more than 70,000 animals in just the past five years following catastrophes such as the Joplin, MO tornado, the flooding in Memphis, and the wildfires in Colorado.

"There are millions of people and animals in the path of this developing disaster," said Dr. Ganzert. "They are in danger and are frightened, but we will bring a century of experience and all of our resources in animal rescue. Help is on the way."
