New Facebook Page Helps Reunite Lost Sandy Pets
As people struggle to rebuild their lives in Hurricane Sandy's wake, many have been left searching for their beloved furry family members -- dogs, cats, birds and other pets. Other people are looking for the owners of stray animals who have wandered into their neighborhoods.
A new Facebook page called "Hurricane Sandy Lost and Found Pets" now has over 8,000 supporters, a number that is growing by the hour. The page has dozens of photos of pets that have been lost and found. Other people are using Craigslist and the hashtag #SandyPets on Twitter.
"People are being very proactive and number one is being aware that after a storm of this magnitude there's going to be a lot of misplaced people and animals," Pennye Jones-Napier told ABCNews.com. "The animals can be very scared and have just gotten away through fences or losing their collars because they got frightened."
