Arrival of 10 dogs displaced by Hurricane Maria from St. Croix


Press Release

TOMORROW: Animals Displaced by Hurricane Maria in St. Croix Arrive at ASPCA Adoption Center in NYC

ASPCA continues to airlift homeless animals from its emergency shelter in the U.S. Virgin Islands to rescue groups in the States to be made available for adoption

New York—The ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) partnered with Cloud Nine Rescue Flights to transport more than 50 cats and dogs displaced by Hurricane Maria in St. Croix to rescue groups in the States. Ten of these animals – including two adult dogs and eight puppies – are making their way from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to the ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City where they will be made available for adoption. The remaining cats and dogs were placed with animal shelters throughout Florida.

“Relocating animals from disaster-impacted communities is a life-saving aspect of the ASPCA’s disaster response efforts because it gives homeless animals rescued in the field a second chance at finding safe and loving homes,” said Jorge Ortega, senior director of the ASPCA Adoption Center. “The ASPCA Adoption Center welcomed homeless animals impacted by Hurricane Harvey in September, and we look forward to helping animals displaced by Hurricane Maria move on to the next chapter of their lives as well.”

These homeless animals were transported from the ASPCA’s emergency shelter established in St. Croix following the catastrophic storm after the largest animal shelter on the island was severely damaged and forced to temporarily shut down. Since late September, dozens of ASPCA responders have been working around the clock conducting field rescues, distributing critical pet supplies and managing the emergency shelter where nearly 350 animals have received care to date.

The ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team deploys nationwide to assist in relocation, search-and-rescue, sheltering and placement of animals during disaster situations including wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. In addition, they work closely with local agencies across the country to help enhance their animal response capabilities through grants and training opportunities. In the past three months, the Field Investigations and Response team responded to four major disasters, assisting more than 30,000 animals through field rescue, relocation, emergency sheltering and the distribution of critical pet supplies in four states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 14 (Estimated arrival time is 11 a.m. please call the ASPCA media contacts above)

Somers Teen Lends a Hand to 13 Hands


Press Release

SOMERS, N.Y.–Danielle Acocella of Somers has found herself in a cycle of giving after becoming involved with a local horse rescue to complete the requirements of her Girl Scout Silver Award project.

Since 1916, the Girl Scouts have had a long-standing tradition of recognizing the extraordinary efforts of extraordinary girls, according to the Girl Scouts’ website. The award has changed names, but has always been earned by young women who undertake projects to improve their communities. Currently the award is among the highest achievements in Girl Scouting, second only to the Gold Award, which requires a bit more independence and more hours, according to Danielle, and it is typically achieved by older girls.

The award, only open to high school students, “challenges you to change the world—or at least your corner of it,” according to the Girl Scouts website.

Danielle, 14, has been riding horses for half of her lifetime. So when it came time to change her corner of the world, it naturally involved the animals she’s grown to love.

“Many people do not realize that horses are incredibly sensitive,” she said. Horses relate with the same social patterns of humans, she said, “which gives them the ability to react to human body language and emotions. They are great companions and can help people overcome their fears.”

Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue Announces its 2018 Annual Fundraising Calendar Paws of Gotham Photographed by Candy Kennedy


Press Release



NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) OCTOBER 09, 2017

“Paws of Gotham” is Louie’s Legacy’s fourth annual calendar aimed at raising funds to rehabilitate and re-home animals from high-kill shelters across the United States. “Paws of Gotham” was shot by famed South African photographer Candy Kennedy. The images she captured focus on the diversity of both people and pets, and showcase the noise and colorful energy of New York City. Each month features a stunning photo of a real rescue pet, most from Louie’s Legacy, with a celebrity, influencer or model, and is shot in front of an iconic New York scene.
Candy Kennedy, along with celebrities, influencers, activists and models such as Mario Cantone, Maggie Geha, KhrystyAna, Brett David and Chef Rōze Traore, just to name a few, have all donated their time and efforts in hopes to raise funds for Louie’s Legacy’s important cause.

“This project has given me the opportunity to combine my love for animal charities and New York,” say Kennedy. “Not only was I able to work with some amazing and creative people on this calendar, but they all share the same love for animals, which makes this project very rewarding and special. I am very proud of how hard everyone worked to find the perfect locations, people to shoot, and most importantly, to fit the right pet with the right person. There is nothing better than the feeling of helping an animal or person in need.”
Pre-orders start Monday, Oct 9th and can be made by going to http://www.louieslegacy.org/wp/calendar.

About Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc., is a non-profit, grassroots all-breed animal rescue, which saves, rehabilitates and re-homes animals from high-kill shelters across the United States. Louie’s Legacy operates in Cincinnati, OH and Staten Island, NY. Since 2009, Louie’s Legacy has saved over 10,000 animals. Recently, during the hurricane season of 2017, LLAR rescued more than 200 animals who were in shelters in Texas and Florida prior to Hurricane Harvey and Irma, taking on over $10,000 in additional non-routine medical expenses in addition to the cost of the rescue mission.

Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue is proudly foster based, meaning their animals live in homes, not shelters. This differentiates them and allows them to more thoroughly get to know the animals, ensuring they are matched with suitable, screened adoptive homes, which meet their high standards. As part of their commitment to the health and wellbeing of all of the animals and to reduce pet overpopulation within the community, every pet is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They are committed to ensuring the safety of their animals for their entire lifetimes so that they will never suffer abuse, neglect or abandonment again.

ASPCA Transports Shelter Animals Displaced by Hurricane Harvey from Houston SPCA to ASPCA Adoption Center


Press Release

ASPCA’s 40-foot animal transport vehicle also delivering animals to Connecticut

New York, N.Y.—In support of the Houston SPCA, the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is assisting in the transport and relocation of 41 shelter animals from Houston to the ASPCA’s Adoption Center in New York City, followed by a second stop at the Connecticut Humane Society in Newington, Conn. These shelter dogs were initially evacuated from Corpus Christi, Texas before Hurricane Harvey devastated the area and were awaiting transport to shelters and rescue groups to be made available for adoption.

“Animal welfare groups in communities throughout Texas and Louisiana devastated by Hurricane Harvey have been working tirelessly to secure transports for homeless animals and get them out of harm’s way,” said Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the ASPCA. “The ASPCA is pleased to be able to offer relief by transporting homeless dogs from the disaster zones to communities where they can find safe and loving homes.”

“These dogs have experienced a long journey from Houston to the Big Apple,” said Jorge Ortega, senior director of the ASPCA Adoption Center. “We want to make sure we give these dogs some time to settle in, but I’m confident that they will quickly find homes once they’re ready to be adopted.”

The ASPCA’s search-and-rescue, sheltering and relocation teams are currently spread throughout Texas and Louisiana and actively engaging with local agencies to deploy much-needed professional responders to help animal victims of this unprecedented and life-threatening flooding.

The ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team deploys nationwide to assist in relocation, search-and-rescue, sheltering and placement of animals during disaster situations including wildfires, tornadoes and floods. In addition, they work closely with local agencies across the country to help enhance their animal response capabilities through grants and training opportunities. In 2016, the ASPCA rescued nearly 1,600 animals from disaster situations and responded to eight disasters – including Hurricane Matthew and the wildfire in Lake County, California.

Hurricane Harvey – Urgent Need For Fosters


Dogs

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Louie’s Legacy will be making a trip to assist in evacuating shelter cats and dogs (not owned animals) for medical care and eventual adoption. We are taking part in our own mission from Cincinnati, OH and will be part of a coalition of groups from the Northeast to assist as many animals as possible. In order to evaluate our potential for assistance, we need to know how many foster homes, new and seasoned, we can depend on to assist a needy hurricane shelter animal.
