How You Can Help Animals Affected by Colorado Floods

By now you've heard about the devastation left behind in the tragic Colorado floods. We are proud to be a part of the BlogPaws Disaster Response Network, a group of bloggers who help get the word out about ways to help animals in areas affected by disasters. The headquarters of BlogPaws is located in Frederick, CO and, although some of the area has sustained much damage, they've managed to remain safe and dry.

On Monday, 21 helicopters were used for evacuations, and so far, 11,750 have been evacuated. The flood continues to spread across 200 miles, affecting 15 counties. Currently 36 shelters have opened their doors to displaced people and animals.

In addition to the local rescue efforts, other pet-related companies have extended their aid.

  • Today, Freekibble is donating 100% of Halo kibble raised to benefit those affected by the floods. Please take the time to visit the site -- this is a free and easy way for you to help.
  • Hill's Pet Nutrition is working to enact their Disaster Relief Network, which will provide much-needed dog and cat food to the area. 

BlogPaws has linked several organizations that are offering relief efforts to which you can donate ... or at least share their information. And you can always click the "Helping Pets in the Colorado Flooding" badge located at the top of this blog.

When disaster strikes, it's more important than ever to come together as a community. Please join Catladyland and BlogPaws in making a difference for those affected by the devastating floods.
