Superstorm Sandy wrought havoc with the lives of people and pets in New Jersey and New York. The HSUS deployed more than 140 staff and volunteers, helped rescue more than 350 animals from devastated areas, cared for more than 700 animals in emergency shelters, and helped set up four distribution centers for supplies. Happily, owners reclaimed more than 400 pets in total.
