 N.H. Humane Looks to Support Louisiana Animal Shelters in Crisis Due to Hurricane Ida
Due to lack of running water, significant scale power outages, and energy disruptions due to a lack of gasoline, animal shelters are struggling to care for the an- imals under their charge. The N.H. Humane Society is encour- aging individuals to help out in this time of need by making cash donations that can be used to ad- dress the most critical needs.
“We’re collecting donations to send down south so shelters can buy food, supplies, and gas to power generators, among other needs,” said Charles Stanton, executive director of the N.H. Humane Society. “This massive storm caused such severe disrup-
tion, and the stories coming in from Louisiana report that they are in a crisis situation. We’re hoping the friends of the N.H. Humane Society will extend their generosity to those in need down south to help them through this extremely challenging time.”
Donations can be made to N.H. Humane Society through the online portal. To ensure that donations are directed to shelters in Louisiana, donors should click on the “I would like to dedicate this donation” box at the bottom of the page and select “in honor of” in the “type of tribute” box
and then type in “Louisiana” in the “tribute name” box. Dona- tions can also be made directly to the Humane Society of Lou- isiana and their Hurricane Ida disaster relief fund and to the Villalobos Rescue Center, which has significant needs right now and has launched a GoFundMe campaign.
“While we know that people often want to donate food, blan- kets, or other supplies, right now these shelters need to have the flexibility to purchase what they need the most, and this is why we are asking people to consider
a cash donation,” Stanton said. “We’d like to be able to report on what we’ve been able to do in support of this and ask those who donate directly to a Louisiana cause to let us know by emailing me at “
Many shelters relocated ani- mals to other states ahead of the storm, but many others were un- able to. Given the storm’s impact on New Orleans and other re- gions, more animals need shelter. In addition, support is expected to be needed for several weeks due to expectations that power outages and disruptions could
last for a month or more in some places.
