The Boomer and Halley Project
To learn about organizations helping with animal rescues in Florida see below.
As you may have read in our Stories section, in honor of their beloved animal family members, Boomerang, their dog and his darling companion cat, Halley’s Comet, Harold and Edna Sanders started the Boomer and Halley Project in Shady Pines. Their goal is to bring awareness to the large scale problem of animals affected by the recent monster storm. The Sanders intend to inspire donations to help animals displaced as a result of the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Michael. You can ready that story HERE
The goal is to motivate their neighbors in the small Southern town to find ways to support the efforts of those individuals and organizations who are trying their best to help the animals in hard-hit Florida, and beyond. Some of those efforts are described in this recent post by Lion Tree Group.

AFTER HURRICANE MICHAEL ANIMALS NEED YOUR HELP
In the wake of Hurricane Michael, we all focus on the devastation, clean up and later recovery. Each year, during the hurricane season, pet owners are forced to leave their animals behind as they are unable to bring them to shelters or hotels. Dogs, cats, and other animals that are left behind, or were caught in the storm, are now being rescued and cared for by owners, neighbors, first responders and animal rescue groups. If you are interested in helping one of these fantastic organizations, please see the ones active now during Michael.
