Chicago may have its hot, humid summers and cold, bitter winters but it's pretty safe from devastating natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and earthquakes. That's a good thing and I'm grateful. I cannot imagine having to evacuate my home, or have no home to come back to, or be separated from loved ones during these crises. My heart goes out to everyone affected by Florence and I sincerely hope you're finding some level of comfort and/or normalcy at this point. Since I have a soft spot for animals and pets, I pray especially hard for their well-being before, during and after these disasters.
Our September donation goes to American Humane. American Humane is committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and well-being of animals. For more than a hundred years American Humane has been first in promoting the welfare and safety of animals and strengthening the bond between animals and people.
Before Hurricane Florence hit the east coast, the American Humane Rescue Team had already jumped into action evacuating shelter cats in the path of the approaching storm and transporting them nearly 800 miles to safe, dry ground. When the storm made landfall, their team mobilized again, sending two emergency rescue vehicles loaded with boats, medical supplies, and tactical rescue equipment to North Carolina.
