Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been devastated by Hurricane Irma. If you would like to help those in need but aren’t sure where to start click here for a list of places you can donate your time and money. We have also listed places where you can find relief if you’re a victim of Hurricane Irma.

Of course Hurricane Irma has caused unprecedented damage and destruction to all those in its path. The flooding here in Jacksonville has been a once in a lifetime event. Many who were spared from the hurricane find they are now victims of the flood. If you have been spared please consider making a donation.

Hurricane Irma didn’t just destroy people’s homes and businesses, it also killed and displaced many pets. The following resources are accepting donations to help reunite animals with their owners, offer refuge until their owners can bring them home and find new homes for those who have lost their owners. Please consider donating to these charities as well.

Best Friend Animal Society – Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, as well as lifesaving programs in collaboration with its nationwide network of members and partners working to Save Them All. All funds raised to support Hurricane Irma victims goes to the reuniting families with their pets.

South Florida Wildlife Center – SFWC depends on the generous support of the community to fund our lifesaving work of rescuing and rehabilitating imperiled wildlife. SFWC receives no government funding or public assistance. Please help us continue our work by donating today.

ASPCA – The ASPCA remains on the ground, assisting in recovery efforts for the animals impacted by Hurricane Irma. We’ve established an ASPCA mega emergency shelter in South Carolina where more than 600 shelter animals can be transported, so that animal shelters in hard hit areas have the capacity to accept the displaced pets coming in after the storms. We’re also working on distributing much needed supplies to emergency shelters and local animal shelters all across Florida.

Your support is needed now. 100% of your donation today will go to the ASPCA’s Field Investigation and Response Fund.This fund is used to support all of the ASPCA’s life-saving efforts for animals in disaster and cruelty situations.
