A Message For Pet Owners In The Path Of Hurricane Irene

Good news: If you have a pet in NYC help is one the way!

Animal welfare agencies are pulling together to offer emergency rescue and sheltering of animals in anticipation of the hurricane.

The ASPCA just announced:

"For families who must evacuate, the City’s evacuation centers, as well as its emergency shelters, will be pet friendly, and people are encouraged to evacuate with their pets. Low-lying areas of the city that are most at risk for flooding and other damage and are designated as “Zone A” low-lying areas in the Coastal Storm Plan include Coney Island and Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn, Far Rockaway and Broad Channel in Queens, South Beach, Midland Beach, and other low-lying areas on Staten Island, and Battery Park City in Manhattan."

We are so happy to hear the city hasn't for gotten about it's furry citizens!

BUT keep in mind: emergency animal rescue is a last resort! You can prevent your pet from needing to be rescued by being prepared. Get steps on how to prepare yourself for Hurricane Irene HERE!

Help For Hundreds Of Pets Affected By Floods In N.D.

Help For Hundreds Of Pets Affected By Floods In N.D.

YAY!

Thanks to the amazballz work of the NARSC (National Animal Rescue and Sheltering Coalition) over 500 pets displaced by severe flooding that has devastated the city of Minot, N.D., have been put in emergency shelters.

Losing your home must be horrible — we are so happy to hear the flood victims wont be losing their pets too!!

Shannon Walajtys, an emergency relief officer (who was one of the first the team on the ground), is happy to give this small comfort to the displaced families. She said:

“Many of the displaced residents are understandably pre-occupied with the burden of finding new homes in which to live, and the moments they’re able to spend visiting their beloved pets at our emergency shelter provide such an important emotional boost.”

We're sure it's more than just an emotional boost, it's a frigg'n a family member! But not all the owners of the rescued pets know their animals are safe. Josh Cary, team lead of the AHA’s Red Star effort explained,

“American Humane Association is providing a rotation team to care for family pets whose owners have been stranded by the flooding. Animal owners know that we will keep their beloved pets safe until reunions are possible.”

We hope they find their owners soon!

Olivia Wilde And Dog Take On The Hollywood Hills

Poor poor girl!

Olivia Wilde recently admitted that her only boyfriend these days was her dog, Paco. Well, ever since fans have been eager to spoil her furry man-friend.

"Is it sad, that my dog is essentially the man in my life? He's a great dog, but it's funny because ever since I mentioned that he was my boyfriend, he gets way more swag than I ever have. I mean, truckloads arrive at the house for him. When he hears a car pull up, he just waits, like he knows it's for him!"

This lush lifestyle is a total 180 from Paco's humble beginnings. Olivia explains:

"I found him through Much Love Animal Rescue, and he had been found in the back of a U-Haul truck with his five other brothers and sisters, and they hadn't eaten for a week."

And how he's dating of of Hollywood's hottest celebs. Hmm… taking all her gifts, not working for it, comes from the streets — kinda reminds us of K-Fed! LOLZ!

Teen Nearly Decapitates His Dog With Electrical Cord

Poor pooch!

Monterion Dionte Davis, 19, was arrested Thursday after authorities - incensed by a graphic photo of the wounded dog - launched an investigation.

Monroe County Sheriff John Cary Bittick said,

"It is without a doubt the worst case of animal cruelty I've ever seen, and I've been sheriff for 29 years."

The Georgia teen nearly decapitated his dog by wrapping an electrical cord around the helpless animal's neck and leaving it to die in the woods.

The mixed-breed dog was nearly dead when the animal rescue group Save-A-Pet found the wounded animal on July 7 and rushed it to a veterinary hospital.

Davis faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
