Pet ResQ Inc. Saves Dogs From Storm-Ravaged Midwest

If You Are Interested in Fostering Or Adopting An Animal, Please Read Below

FAIRFIELD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A group of victims of the recent Midwest and Southern tornadoes have arrived in Fairfield. Matted and scared, the orphaned dogs were flown in from shelters in Kentucky.

The shelters in the Midwest were beyond capacity after taking in animals that had lost their families and homes in the storm.

Because there was no room, the dogs were scheduled to be euthanized, until volunteers from Pet ResQ stepped in and saved them.

“How do you say no? And how do you not feel good? He’s not dead,” said Robyn Urman, one of the volunteers from Pet ResQ who gave this group of animals a second chance at life.

Now many of the animals are on their way to loving foster homes.

Chris Ann Albanese and her son, Christian, are among the volunteer families who have opened their hearts and their homes to the dogs in need.

Chris Ann told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez on Wednesday night that she plans on “loving them until they find a forever home.”

Thanks to volunteers like the Albaneses, it looks like these dogs’ second chance at life is off to a good start.

More dogs rescued from the storms will arrive over the coming weeks. Anybody interested in fostering or adopting can contact Pet ResQ Inc for more information.

    i’m right there with all of u..i want to adopt one, the link doesnt work and fred, i agree the shelters are asses,,,,we were “banned” from north shore animal league because the dog we adopted, we had to have “readopted” to someone else because they wouldnt take her back ( long story..the dog was very aggressive wiith my kids and destroyed everything..this is after two tries at doggie boot camp for two weeks each, and then having her come to the house to train when that didnt work….. now they wont talk to us nor let us adopt from them again and we tried, went there and was denied)… NSAL jerks all of them. we have a good home and want to take care of any dog

    It’s easier to vote in this country than to adopt a dog from some of these shelters. They make it so difficult and stressful that many potential owners just give up and walk away.
