Helping flood victims in North Dakota

On Friday, March 27, UAN deployed a team of Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers to Fargo, North Dakota, to help care for animals being evacuated in advance of the potential catastrophic flooding in the Red River Valley.

A dozen EARS volunteers are now caring for more than 100 dogs and cats at a temporary shelter set up by the Fargo-Moorhead Humane Society at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds. The always-ingenious EARS volunteers even made cat hammocks (pictured) from blankets and towels to keep the displaced felines comfortable in their temporary cages.

UAN's Emergency Services Manager Janell Matthies reports that evacuees are able to visit their pets at the shelter, and the work the EARS volunteers are doing is immensely appreciated by everyone in the city.

Read our press release for more details.

Get information about the temporary shelter at the Red River Valley Fair Web site.
