    Detailed Information:
    SACRAMENTO (Sept. 19) – United Animal Nations, a national animal advocacy and rescue group, today announced the creation of AnimalAid, a relief program for the companion animals of the September 11 terrorist victims. In the wake of the horrible terrorist attacks which struck our nation, United Animal Nations has established the AnimalAid program to provide relief for any animals who were orphaned or otherwise affected by the tragedies in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania. AnimalAid can provide foster care or adoption placement, transportation, and financial assistance (up to $500 per applicant) for animal needs such as veterinary care, boarding arrangements, medication or animal food. Animals whose caregivers were killed or injured by the attacks, animals who were themselves injured or affected by the attacks; or animals involved in the search and rescue efforts qualify for the program. Assistance is available through March 11, 2002. United Animal Nations has been rescuing and caring for the animal victims of disasters since 1987 through its Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) program. EARS has responded to more than 50 major disasters since that time and aided thousands of animal victims. There are currently more than 4,000 trained EARS volunteers throughout the United States who are on call to help with EARS disaster response efforts for the animals. “Our experience in working with both human and animal disaster victims has shown us that the needs of companion animals are not always apparent in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy but materialize as families try to cope with these unfathomable circumstances,” says EARS Director Terri Crisp, who is on site in New York City assisting with efforts to aid animal victims. “AnimalAid will step in to help victims’ families who now find themselves struggling to care for orphaned or displaced cats, dogs or other animals in the wake of this disaster,” added Crisp. “We’ll do whatever we can to ensure that these animals are cared for in the way that those who loved them would have wanted.” Guidelines for the AnimalAid Program Application for the AnimalAid Program To apply for assistance under the AnimalAid program, click on the link for the application form above or call UAN’s disaster line at 800-440-3277 or contact UAN, P.O.
