Pelican Rescued From Hurricane Sandy

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!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
