WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A Port City nonprofit is giving people the opportunity to help animals still struggling months after Hurricane Dorian rocked the Bahamas.
People are asked to drop off donations of animal food, toys, crates and blankets at businesses including Coastal KIA, Crest Fitness, Woof Gang Bakery, Pet Smart and Spoonfed. A tractor trailer will be loaded with the donations for the Bahamas on Friday, Nov. 15 at Lumina Station.
Heidi’s Hope for Homeless Animals, Inc. Animal Advocacy organized the donation drive, which will directly help the animals devastated by Hurricane Dorian.
Hurricane Dorian first made landfall in August 2019 as the most powerful hurricane ever recorded to hit the island nation. Animal rescue groups anticipate that the effort to reunite and re-home dogs and cats will likely take many months, possibly even years.
