Officials in Atlantic County, New Jersey have established an animal response hotline to help residents reunite with their pets who were left behind during Hurricane Sandy.
A county spokeswoman says residents who call the hotline can leave a message with their information and the type of pet, or pets, found and can expect a call back from a volunteer coordinator.
The county says the volunteers will coordinate efforts to reunite pets with their owners.
The volunteers previously provided this type of service to victims of Hurricane Katrina, the county said.
The Animal Response Hotline can be reached at: 609-909-7829.
Once again we need to bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks.
The cold stays with us for a few more days. Today's high is in the upper 20s; tomorrow, high around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
