Current Responses 

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Florence

LSART is responding as an ASPCA partner in North Carolina to assist with Hurricane Florence relief efforts,just as we have for past disasters like Hurricane Matthew, where we provided evacuation resources for Georgia and South Carolina. LSART has been in North Carolina since Saturday, Sept 15 assisting with lifesaving Animal Search and Rescue, as well as pet sheltering and transport. As rivers continue to rise and crest more flooding is possible. Louisiana has received assistance from NC SART in the past, so we are grateful to be able to assist them during their time of need.
