Best Friends Protecting Animals During Disaster
(KUTV) When disaster strikes, many work to help and rebuild, but sometimes one important part of people's lives is overlooked.
"There are animals that were already in shelters that were either flooded or damaged by the storm. There are a number of animals displaced by the storm that are now homeless. And there is a large group that are actually in human evacuation centers with their people, which is good news, but those animals need to be cared for as well," Temma Martin from Best Friends Animal Society says.
The Best Friends organization plans to provide grants and supplies for shelters that need to rebuild.
Volunteers will also teach animal control officers how to safely rescue animals.
