New "Sea Rescue" This Saturday Features Superstorm Sandy Animals in Crisis

by Staff

Late last year, Superstorm Sandy devastated the Northeast. As the nation rallied to help families who had lost everything, efforts also were underway to help animals affected by the storm. This Saturday morning, a new episode of “Sea Rescue with Sam Champion” shows how this catastrophic event affected animals of all kinds, from pelicans flown miles off-course to nearly 50 dogs and cats that SeaWorld and Southwest Airlines flew across the country to a welcoming shelter in California.

These shelter animals needed to be removed to make room for the increasing number of wayward pets displaced by the storm. Since arriving at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California, nearly all of the animals found forever homes. Three dogs and one cat are still available for adoption.

Sea Rescue airs Saturday mornings on ABC. Time is subject to change so be sure to check your local listings.
