Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

More from Guardians of Rescue

This group is new to me, which doens't mean anything, really; just that I haven't heard of them before. But they are getting their message out about local animals on Long Island. Good for them.

From a page on facebook:
The Brookhaven Animal Shelter is seeking volunteers to assist the Suffolk County SPCA in helping the beloved pets of hurricane evacuees. The Suffolk County Community College Riverhead-Woodland Campus at 121 Speonk-Riverhead Road, Riverhead will be open to residents and their pets in case of evacuation at 10 am tomorrow. Volunteers are desperately needed to help care for the animals. They will need about 4-5 volunteers for as few or as many hours as possible from Saturday-Sunday if necessary. If anyone can help please email or call The Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722. Let's help keep the pets of Long Island safely with their owners.
