There is record flooding in Washington state tonight and waters are getting higher. Help is needed to transport animals for for families whose homes are now under water. Here is the email we got from Pasado Safe Haven (http;//www.pasadosafehaven.org EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR ANIMALS PROVIDED DURING FLOODS Volunteers asked to help. Pasado’s Safe Haven, a national animal welfare agency based in Sultan, Wash., has informed flood victims through the media that we will help with pets and livestock animals during this time of need. Pasado’s will provide (at no cost): * Temporary housing for any pet or livestock animal including cows, horses, goats, sheep, etc. * Temporary care including feeding through this time of need * Transport for all large animals Flood victims should call 360-793-9393 (Press/volunteers please call cell 425-283-8307). American Red Cross Snohomish Chapter and Pasado’s Safe Haven Through am MOU (memo of understanding) reached earlier this year between the Snohomish County Chapter of the American Red Cross and Pasado’s Safe Haven, animal sheltering will be provided to flood victims forced to leave their homes with pets. This unique collaboration will keep animals and their guardians together through any disaster. PasadoRescue was the only Pacific Northwest shelter to rescue in the Gulf during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We learned valuable lessons about how to assist pets and their guardians through this experience. VOLUNTEERS AND FLAT BOTTOM RESCUE BOATS NEEDED If you would like to assist should we need persons for transport, please call: 425-283-8307 or e-mail [email protected] Those with trucks, vans, horse trailers or trailers are also encouraged to contact us.
