Animals displaced by flooding in NW Minnesota

Animal Ark Called to Help Animals Displaced by Flooding

Emergency response for animals in the Red River Valley flood zone is officially underway, with animal rescue organizations preparing for the evacuation of at least 200 - 300 animals from the area.

According to rescue workers at least one animal shelter is potentially in the area of concern and needs to be evacuated. Additionally, as residents in the area begin evacuating, more animals have started arriving at animal shelters, increasing the demand.

A team from Animal Ark will be leaving for the flood zone early in the morning on Thursday, March 26 and expects to be deployed for about 72 hours.

A site has been designated to serve as an animal evacuation center. Donations, supplies and volunteers are needed. Additionally, depending on the amount of damage that results from possible flooding, foster homes for affected animals may be needed.
