For Immediate Release - Nov. 5th - The Suffolk County SPCA will begin distributing pet food in storm ravaged areas in the Town of Babylon and will continue in other targeted areas as supplies are delivered. Additionally pet food distribution will also be available at our office at 725 Veterans Memorial Hwy. Bldg. 16, Hauppauge, NY. This is limited to the most needy. Please call for distribution hours.
Chief Roy Gross of the Suffolk SPCA said that the agency will be driving through the areas in marked vehicles distributing dog and cat food to families hit hard by hurricane Sandy.
"Our biggest need is for supplies; dog & cat food; blankets; bowls leashes, kitty litter, wee wee pads and volunteers," Gross said. Volunteers are needed to help staff the Mobile Animal Hospital (MASH Unit) where dogs and cats are currently being sheltered. We also need volunteers who will be trained to staff the shelters in the event we get hit again with another disaster.
Anyone who can help with donations or who wishes to volunteer is asked to call the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722.
