A group of Minnesota volunteers have assembled in an effort to aid animal rescues/shelters in the Carolinas affected by Hurricane Florence. They plan to assist Granville County Animal Shelter in Oxford, NC and The Unforgotten Souls of Columbus County AC in Whiteville, NC.
A trip will be made to the affected areas once they are able to gain safe access to the drop off sites in North Carolina.
Below is a list of supplies they are collecting. Feel free to reach out to Emily Bernal Gaza (419-324-6929) if you have questions or need to coordinate items for donation.
Dogs of MSP will also be collecting these items at our Make It MSP Welcome event on 9/29 at Able Seedhouse & Brewery from 1-4pm. Stop by for a complimentary drink courtesy of Make It MSP and bring a donation with you!
