Emergency Animal Rescue seeks help for Midwest flood victims

In Uncategorized on June 16, 2008 at 8:22 pm

United Animal Nations’ Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) has deployed dozens of volunteer animal workers from the Midwest to help and rescue animal victims from the recent massive flooding in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

A temporary emergency shelter has been set up and is receiving hundreds of pets per day, from displaced families around the area.

The leader of EARS, Diann Wellman, said the animals being rescued from attics, rooftops, and second-story rooms are “terrified” by their ordeal.

Authorities predict the Cedar River won’t fall below flood stage for another week, and heavy rain is causing serious flooding in other parts of Iowa and the Midwest.

300 pets have already arrived, with about 100 more arriving each day. EARS is asking for donations. For more information visit UAN.org.
