Operation NetPets Foster Program for Military
NetPets.org has announced a Foster Program to care for the pets of our Military and other related government organizations that will have to leave their pets behind. If you know of a member of our Military who is
in need of foster services, please direct them to the NetPets.org site. There is a link on the top of the NetPets page for Military Members to enter the site and record information on any pets that they wish to have
temporarily fostered. All pets, including dogs, cats and birds.
Liberty Paws is another organization helping military personnel who must leave a pet behind. They provide foster care and adoptions for military members.
There may be hundreds, if not thousands of animals who have been left to wait
patiently at home for those they love - alone, hungry, and certainly afraid.
The following links have set up specific pages for information, adoptions, donation requests - for the orphaned pets.
The ASPCA has received calls from some pet owners in the WTC disaster area who have now returned home and found their pets were removed without their knowledge. They are desperately trying to be reunited. If you have, or know of, any pets rescued from the WTC area, please call the ASPCA with the following information: pet description, location
where the pet was found/rescued, and where the pet is currently being housed. Call 212-876-7700, ext. 4301 or 4313.

9/14/01 - With a face mask still around his neck, Eric Miller breathes easier knowing that his cat, "Hamilton", is safe. Miller had not seen Hamilton since Tuesday morning after which time the superintendent of the building had been checking in on and feeding the cat. Miller had been evacuated from his apartment on North End Street, only blocks from the World Trade Center Towers. They were reunited with the help of the ASPCA on Friday, September 14th, 2001.
