Thank goodness the Humane Society of the United States is actively helping displaced animals in Joplin, MO. They have sent in an Animal Rescue Team to provide assistance with emergency sheltering in the town that was hit so hard. They have already helped many of the displaced animals reunite with their families.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) called HSUS in help and will work with them and other animal welfare groups to include the American Humane Association, Kansas State Animal Rescue Team, Joplin Humane Society, United Animal Nations and Sumter DART. The groups have been deployed to the town to aid the agency that has taken the lead in this rescue mission–Joplin Humane Society.
The HSUS also helped with rescue and sheltering animals in areas with extensive flood and tornado damage to areas in Alabama and Mississippi.
Although Vacation Pet Friendly is intended to help people traveling with pets or without, we are concerned about animal welfare and share information with you to keep you updated on current affairs that affect them.
We thank the Humane Society of the United States and Animal Welfare Groups that have organized to care for displaced pets and help them get reunited with their families.
