"Banfield Foundation’s second Disaster Relief grant helped organizations care for, search for and rescue pets affected by Hurricane Matthew."
While Hurricane Matthew was making its way to the southeastern United States, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue’s Rapid Response Team was making a plan to help animals in need.
In advance of the inevitable destruction, Brother Wolf stepped up with volunteers and supplies that helped evacuate 200 shelter pets from Marion County, S.C. But when the hurricane hit this low-lying, rural community, there was more work to be done.
Banfield Foundation’s second Disaster Relief grant went to Brother Wolf who, along with help from Tri-State County Animal Response Team (CART) and Kinship Circle, cared for, searched for and rescued pets affected by this catastrophic event.
