Nothing stops PETA’s Community Animal Project (CAP) from helping animals—not even Hurricane Sandy!
This exhausted pelican was obviously worn out after being tossed around by the storm! A compassionate person spotted him and immediately called PETA to ask what kind of food she could give him, convinced that nobody would be able to get out to help the stranded bird since her street had become impossible to get through.
Well, CAP doesn’t know the meaning of the word “impossible.” When local animal control representatives said that they weren’t sure they’d be able to get out there, PETA’s staffers drove through the heavy storm to get this fella and transport him to the Virginia Beach SPCA, where he’ll receive needed rehabilitation so that he can be released once the coast is clear!
If you’re in an area that was affected by the storm, please be on the lookout for animals in need of help!
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
