Technology Today - Alley Cat Allies Flies Second Delivery of Hurricane Relief for Animals to Gulf Coast

Technology Today

Becky Robinson, the president and founder of Alley Cat Allies, is rushing a second flight of emergency relief supplies for cats and other animals to the Gulf Coast on Saturday, September 4. This flight is the latest in an ongoing Alley Cat Allies mobilization to save the lives of animals in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

The Alley Cat Allies flight will bring food for cats and other animals, generators, microchips and veterinary supplies including wound care, triage supplies and antibiotics. The flight will also include humane traps and carrying crates to locate and transport animals displaced by the storm. After departing Dulles International Airport in Virginia at 11 a.m. ET, it is scheduled to arrive at the Hammond North Shore Regional Airport in Hammond, Louisiana, at approximately 12:20 p.m. CT.

“Cats can easily become separated and lost during a hurricane,” Robinson said. “Every hour could mean the difference in saving their lives. These supplies are desperately needed to locate them, provide emergency veterinary care, and reunite them with their families.”

This delivery will go directly to the Big Sky Ranch/CATNIP Foundation, which operates the Becky Robinson Alley Cat Allies Veterinary Hospital in Saint Tammany Parish, Louisiana. Earlier in the week, Robinson also delivered a similar flight with food, medical supplies and generators to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, that was distributed to Greater New Orleans and the broader Hurricane Ida impact area.

Robinson and Alley Cat Allies have provided similar aid to the Gulf Coast after many other hurricanes, including Katrina in 2005. She often urges caregivers not to leave their cats or other animals behind to face natural disasters alone, because of the high risk that they may be lost, injured or killed.
